Carlo Bacci for Select Board
- Jan. 8, 2019
-- Carlo Bacci has a vested interest in the Reading community for his family and their family chocolate manufacturer business. In 2006 Bacci first came to Reading when they moved the Chocolate Truffle from its original location in Woburn to its location at 494 Main Street. "Reading was the ideal location for the business because of the proximity to the highways, there was more parking then in Woburn and it also offered foot traffic." The business had grown to three retail stores, acquired another chocolate manufacturer, "my experience as an entrepreneur and a business broker of helping clients find and sell businesses will bring a unique skill set to the Board because not only do I understand economic development, I live it. With talk brewing of needing another override on the heels of the last override, debt exclusions for the high school and library, and many housing projects before the community how do we sustain? As a small business owner who has made sacrifices I have a vested interest and first hand business experience with the Town of Reading and that's why I've chosen to run."
Carlo Bacci and his wife Erin Calvo-Bacci are the former owners of The Chocolate Truffle. They operate a family chocolate manufacturer and online retailer CB Stuffer https://cbstuffer.com
