MPM Opens a Caputo’s Market in Downers Grove

MPM Food Equipment Group worked with Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets, a local Chicago grocery chain, to open its seventh store, a converted Dominick’s in Downers Grove. MPM was able to develop a solution that incorporated existing equipment with reconditioned and new pieces to complete the store in a truncated time frame.

 The equipment highlights include:

  • Pizza Master Pizza Oven
  • Crepe Station
  • Remanufactured Hussmann Deli Case
  • Hot Foods Bar
  • Cold Foods Bar

With a heavy emphasis on prepared foods, Caputos can offer their customers a wide scope of product, including:

  • a variety of thin and deep dish pizzas
  • a burrito station
  • sandwiches
  • ribs and chicken
  • juice bar
  • coffee bar

Caputo’s is a long-time Chicago-area institution – a fresh market business started in 1958 in Elmwood Park, Illinois. Starting with a second location in 1991, Caputo has slowly opened additional stores and now opened its seventh, the 72,000-square-foot space, at 42 Ogden Road in Downers Grove.

The new store includes “Bar Angelo,” a full-service restaurant and bar that serves beer and wine along with menu items such as steak and fish. It also includes a kiosk system, which allows customers to browse the store's deli offerings, place an order and continue with the rest of their shopping while it is filled.
