Many customers come in the store and are amazed at the selection and all of the cool features and ask us “where on earth did you get the idea for this store?”
The Boccuzzi’s were on vacation and saw a bulk food store and liked the idea of food in bulk, but did not like all the plastic packaging that the store offered. They told the DiPippas about their trip and the two couples started to talk about how they could take the concept of bulk food but elevate it to more of a foodie paradise, at affordable prices and with eco-friendly packaging. And thus, the idea for BD Provisions was born. And then, the ideas didn’t stop- “Let’s roast our own coffee” and “let’s have an all-natural healthy and beauty section” and “how about we offer a mason jar exchange” and we kept going and going until we believed we knew exactly what we wanted for our first store.
BD Provisions was founded on the idea that consumers are ready to move towards more sustainable lifestyles and everyone moves at his or her own pace. We believe that if given healthy, convenient and affordable solutions, change can happen in our lifetime. Nobody is perfect, including us, but the most important thing we’ve learned is that you’ve got to start somewhere!
