As the founder and leader of Sal’s Pizza retail and wholesale, Salvatore’s Restaurants, Riverwalk Properties and JeNet Management, he remains motivated by his commitment to make a difference in the communities he serves.
His innovative approach to building ambitious teams that exude confidence and optimism has provided Sal with the ability to raise more than $200 million dollars of capital for his business interests. Sal attributes much of his success to the values instilled in him by his parents at an early age. Growing up, Sal was one of six boys who learned that family values and hard work are the cornerstone of real success. As the captain of the Chelmsford High School football team Sal was a natural leader, committed to supporting his players. Sal’s focus in school and on the field resulted in him receiving a full athletic scholarship to Northeastern University where he again rose to become captain of the football team. After graduating cum laude with a degree in business management and an eagerness to apply his newfound knowledge and experience, Sal immediately started his first business.
Sal’s motivation each and every day is a deep-seated desire to improve the lives of those people around him. His passion stems from this simple belief; job creation stimulates the economy. This philosophy has created an organization that employs more than 1000 people. Despite all his success, Sal remains humble, approachable and open to hearing new ideas. Sal challenges his team to focus on continuous growth and improvement and encourages them to always provide exceptional customer service. Sal’s customer-centric approach has effectively combined the complimentary channels of his organization. Sal’s tenacity to pursue his vision combined with a focused awareness of future challenges and opportunities are unique characteristics of his management style. His accomplishments are a testimony to the axiom that the American Dream is alive and well; that vision, driven by values is a solid foundation and the greatest recipe for success. But it’s only the beginning.
In addition to his BS in Business Management, Sal holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management. Sal is also a recipient of numerous awards that have recognized his many achievements, including: Boston Business Journal’s 40 Under 40, Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizen Award, Enterprise Bank’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Small Business Administration (SBA) Entrepreneur of the Year, Ernst & Young New England Entrepreneur of the Year, the I Migliori Award and the Housing Families Corporate Citizenship Award. Sal is a frequent keynote speaker at educational institutions including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Northeastern University as well as several Fortune 500 companies. He also serves as a moderator for numerous panels and debates for local political officials and congressional leaders.
Sal’s greatest joy comes from being a loving husband to his wife of twenty-five years and a supportive father to his daughter and son. He also cherishes time with his mother and his brothers who work beside him at the Lupoli Companies.
