NEW: Central Falls Kielbasa Manufacturer Celebrates 90 Years

Tuesday, November 27, 2012


Central Falls Provision, a family-owned business in Rhode Island's smallest city, will celebrate its 90th anniversary in a big way in 2013.

Central Falls Provision, a kielbasa manufacturer in Rhode Island's smallest city, will celebrate 90 years in business in 2013 and plans not only to celebrate, but to give back to the community that has supported this family-run business for nearly a century.

Vincent Skoczylas, grandfather of current owner Paul Skoczylas, brought his Polish recipes of fine meats to the US  and opened up a shop in 1923. Nine decades later, the family of Central Falls Provision wanted to find a way to thank those customers who have supported their business in good times and bad. Launching a campaign to find ninety ways to give back to their customers and community, they found a way to do just that.

Celebrating with specials

“We are celebrating ninety years in business," said Paul Skoczylas, third-generation family owner of the Polish kielbasa and fine meats producer. "That is a quite an accomplishment, especially in the current economic times. We have kept our recipe; quality and customer service the same as when we opened our doors in 1923. This is the cornerstone to Central Falls Provision.”  However, said Skoczylas, “We had to also change with the times, adding new products and recipes at customer request and changing the way we communicate with our customers to keep up with technology. At the very heart of our continued success and growth are our customers, old and new, who love our product and recommend it to family and friends.”

“In honor of our 90th anniversary, we wanted to thank our customers and spend a full year giving back to them. This is why we will be having a year’s worth of giveaways and promotions. We will have 90 ways to give back to our customers throughout this fall and all of 2013! It is an ambitious goal, we understand, for a small business like ours. It is quite a challenge to try and find ninety ways to say thank you to our customers but we are committed to showing our gratitude!”

Central Falls Provision is a lesser-known success story of a small business surviving and thriving in a variety of economic climates. The year-long celebration will focus on giving back. From community projects and individual giveaways to a celebration night scheduled in 2013, Central Falls Provision will celebrate the remarkable accomplishment of bringing their secret Polish recipes to thousands of customers for 90 years.
