Andiamo Restaurant Group

In 1989 when Andiamo opened its first Italian restaurant, the goal was simple – deliver fine Italian cuisine by using the freshest seasonal ingredients and prepare them from scratch each and every day. This goal set by the late Master Chef Aldo Ottaviani was achieved and as a result Andiamo exceeded all expectations, expanding to nine metro Detroit locations. Andiamo has never strayed from its founding principles and continues to provide exceptional service and authentic Italian cuisine prepared by hand every day.

Toni Wisne Sabina Foundation

In honor of  Toni Wisne Sabina ’s long-time support for Gleaners’ mission to feed our hungry neighbors.

Grand Traverse Pie Company ’s vision is to spread their love for pie throughout everything that they make and do. They call it “Warming Hearts and Community through Pie”. They are committed to quality products, warm and friendly service, and to truly making a positive difference in your day. They believe that respect leads to loyalty, loyalty promotes growth, growth allows them to give back to people, and giving back gains respect. It’s a delicious cycle. They proudly serve the best handmade pies from scratch every day, and can be found at fifteen different locations throughout Michigan and one in Indiana.

The first Happy’s Pizza opened in 1996 on Detroit’s Northeast side on a busy corner and quickly became known for not only its pizza, but also its barbecue ribs, fried chicken and seafood. Happy’s Pizza soon turned into a household name in Michigan and has expanded into California, Nevada, and Ohio, with over 60 U.S. locations.

Happy’s Pizza’s primary mission is to provide families with the finest quality foods at the lowest possible price and to assure that each and every restaurant location is a charitable leader throughout the communities that they serve. For more information visit www.happyspizza.com
