Started in 1979, Rome Refreshment Services has set the standard for quality of products and customer service. Dominic Macerola (President) was born in 1951 just outside of Rome, Italy. Growing up, Dominic spent his days at his uncle’s coffee shop. It is there that he learned the art of making espresso, lattes and cappuccinos. Illusions of grandeur, emanating from the American Dream, drove Dominic to a city full of potential in 1979: Houston. It is here that Dominic started his dream to provide refreshment services to those in need.
