Giuseppe Lanzone, Co-Founder & CEO, Peruvian Brothers
Mario Lanzone, Co-Founder & Executive Chef, Peruvian Brothers
As a two-time Olympic rower for Team USA, Giuseppe Lanzone is the driving force on the business side to match his brother, Mario’s prowess in the kitchen. The brothers were born and raised off the coast of Lima, Perú, in a close-knit community of “La Punta” where family and the ocean reigned. The only time they didn’t spend in the ocean was spent feasting on fresh fruits, vegetables and meats prepared by loving hands. When developing Peruvian Brothers, Giuseppe and Mario wanted to give Washington D.C. not only delicious Peruvian ingredients and flavors, but also a piece of their unique heritage.
