Cafaro has been bringing high-quality retail development to American communities for nearly 70 years. We recognize the evolving needs and desires of each marketplace and respond by creating centers that become destinations for shopping, dining and entertainment.
This was the vision of our founders, William M. Cafaro and his brother, John. They started out by developing properties for grocers. In 1949 they founded the company that built scores of retail centers throughout the country. Today, the Cafaro portfolio encompasses more than 50 properties with 30 million square feet of space in 10 states.
A third generation of the Cafaro family is now guiding the company. Co-Presidents William A. Cafaro and Anthony Cafaro, Jr. bring their unique talents and vision to this dynamic organization. At the same time, they maintain the values of stability and integrity they faithfully learned from their father and grandfather.
