The T. Marzetti Company is the Specialty Food Group of the Lancaster Colony Corporation. T. Marzetti produces a long list of salad dressings, fruit and vegetable dips, frozen baked goods and specialty brand items.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, the T. Marzetti Company was founded by Teresa Marzetti.


T. Marzetti started out as an Italian restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, started by Teresa and Joseph Marzetti, recent Italian immigrants, in 1896. Teresa's opening credo was:

"We will start a new place and serve good food. At a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but we will serve good food."[citation needed]

Marzetti's became a local favorite especially among The Ohio State University students, and grew to become a four star restaurant.

Customers particularly enjoyed Teresa's Johnny Marzetti, a pasta dish named for her brother-in-law as well as her homemade salad dressings. By 1955, Marzetti's dressings had become so renowned[citation needed] that the upstairs kitchen of the restaurant became a full-scale factory and the Marzetti brand of salad dressings found its way into grocery stores throughout Ohio.

After Teresa Marzetti's death in 1972, the restaurant closed, but the factory continued operation.
