Danny and Joe DiBruno proudly introduced the House of Cheese to Philadelphia’s Italian Market in April 1939. Initially, the store stocked only a small variety of Italian cheese and grocery items. However, Danny realized that in order to compete with the larger and more established grocers in the area, he needed to specialize. After a vacation to Switzerland, Danny determined that cheese was the vehicle that would make the DiBruno name famous. He introduced the largest selection of imported and domestic cheeses available to Philadelphians. To complement the selection of over 400 cheeses, Danny keenly tapped into the great demand for high-quality olives, olive oils and vinegars, which have certainly made the flagship store a one-stop, gourmet shopping destination.

Sixty years later, Danny’s grandsons, Bill and Emilio are the third generation Ninth Street Merchants. They expanded the legacy in 1997 when they opened a second store in the prestigious Rittenhouse Square area. To accommodate a larger gourmet audience, they began stocking specialty items such as truffles, foie gras, pate and caviar.
