The family behind Doltone House have celebrated the 50th anniversary of their brand with Prime Minister Scott Morrison unveiling a plaque where it all began.
Morrison was joined by MP Mark Raymond Speakman, Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce and members of the Signorelli family who remain at the helm of Doltone House.
“Family gives a sense of love and welcome,” Morrison said. “When I think of the Signorelli family, who have been in business for so long, I think of a family who has an intense love and passion for each other, and that love overflows into the community they serve.
“None are better than Doltone House. They are the standard. The quality of the food, the attention to detail – nothing is too hard.
“They aren’t a business just seeking to make money, it’s a business seeking to make a difference in the lives of its customers.”
Executive chairman Paul Signorelli said their success has been built on great service and exceptional product.
“We believe our success is due to keeping what is important front and centre,” he said.
“Even today, our clients know they can reach out to us personally, they know we absolutely care about every single event.”
Over 50 years, Doltone House has hosted almost 67,000 events, 32,400 of them business events, and catered for over 6,400,000 people.
Doltone House employs over 550 people across Sydney and attributes their success to their staff.
“Our staff are an extension of our family,” Signorelli said. “We couldn’t have reached where we are today without their commitment and efforts, we have been honoured to work with such great people.”
The Signorelli family now operates six venues and over 30 event spaces. They will open Marconi Events at Marconi Club in 2020, an event destination precinct in Milperra in 2025, and have more projects in the pipeline.
