About Us

John Calarese & Company, Inc. DBA the CALARESE GROUP has grown from a single New England paper rep, to an exceptionally experienced team of industry professionals serving both the food service and janitorial/sanitation industries. The diverse lines the Calarese Group represents allow for simple turnkey solutions or elaborate programs that can outfit a full chain of businesses.

Though still specializing in disposable paper products and packaging, the Calarese Group also offers cutting edge cleaning equipment and chemicals, including environmentally-friendly options. On the Food Service side, CG covers front-of-house to back, with tabletop staples such as China and Serving wares to kitchen coolers, freezers, ice machines, and an array of countertop equipment and cooking staples i.e. pots, pans, stainless steel tables and sinks.

No matter the industry focus, there is always a restroom around the corner, and the Calarese Group can outfit everything but the plumbing. Floor matting, soap and sanitizers, dispensers, coordinated air care fragrances, hand dryers, hygiene products and dispensers, and so much more. CG can even set up new partitions and stalls!

With a mindset of finding the best solution to a situation, the Calarese Group continues to provide high performance products to its partner-distributors and ultimately the product’s end user.
