Rastelli’s Office Expansion
When Rastelli Foods Group needed to expand its office space to meet its staff's future needs, the company contracted with DeSimone Construction to make its new office complex exceptional! This new 12,000 square foot structure at 300 Heron Drive in Swedesboro, NJ, features a grand skylit atrium, creative lighting design, frosted glass office walls, and contrasting yet complementing metal, wood and other finishes that impress occupants and visitors alike.
As an industry leader in the food processing industry, supplying the finest hotels, restaurants, institutions, and retail markets with the highest quality food products and service, Rastelli Foods Group values and wants the best for its employees. As such, the company kept their wellbeing in mind as it merged technology and design to create this new work space. As noted in Corporate Wellness Magazine, “Lighting is an essential part of the workplace. Reduced exposure to natural light at work may cause fatigue, moodiness, headaches, and even sleep disturbances. These not only compromise productivity but also lead to long-term health problems including depression and cognitive decline." Rastelli's new office complex not only provides exposure to natural light, but encourages employees to occasional look up and remember that the sky's the limit!
The new complex features three hi-tech conference rooms, 14 fixed and 32 modular offices, 46 workstations, four restrooms, and a modernized kitchen, all stylishly furnished with form and function in mind. As Rastelli also sets goals to increase its sustainability and reduce its carbon footprint across several aspects of its business, DeSimone Construction mastered every detail to ensure the new space was not only comfortable, but also energy-efficient and sustainable.
DeSimone recently completed a full remodel of Rastelli Foods Group’s test kitchen. The new cooking studio set, with table seating for 16 and bar seating for four, now serves as a multipurpose room for use as a test kitchen, special value studio, and meeting space. With its light colors and textures, the space is both elegant and functional, and makes quite the first impression when you enter through its glass doors from the main office of the company’s Swedesboro, NJ, facility.

When an opportunity arose for a special outdoor QVC shoot, Rastelli’s Foods Group came up with an idea to construct an outdoor kitchen at its Swedesboro, NJ, facility. With four weeks to bring this idea to reality, the company called on DeSimone Construction to build its inviting oasis, complete with all the staples one could want in an outdoor kitchen. The patio, which includes an outdoor fountain, surround sound speakers, full service outdoor kitchen, hardscape patio and seating, and lavish landscaping, is now continuously enjoyed by Rastelli’s employees and guests.

With its commercial clients expanding their food offerings and growth in its national home delivery service program, Rastelli’s Foods Group needed additional warehouse space in its Swedesboro, NJ, location to meet its growing demand. This world-class provider of food products called on DeSimone Construction to build its state-of-the-art 40,000 square feet cold storage expansion. The project includes six loading docks and a 15,000 square feet freezer.
