The Caslow Family

The family dynamic at Acme begins at the crack of dawn when all the members of the Caslow family step on premises. Whether they are double checking orders or sharing business insights, the commitment to their products and company is omnipresent. This passion to work was inherited from Rubin Caslow, who continued working at Acme until his last days.  For more on the individual members of the Caslow family, visit the Management Team section.

An important sign of a healthy and well managed company is when its skilled team members are genuinely passionate about their work. This is exactly what we have at Acme and we recognize the great fortune of having knowledgable, hardworking people as part of the Acme family.

Gary Brownstein

Before taking over the slicing department twenty years ago, Gary worked extensively in the Herring, Pre-Pack and Salad departments, managing each one over the thirty-five years he’s been a full-time employee at Acme.  Gary is proud to be an Acme employee since 1967, following in the footsteps of his grandfather Harry Brownstein and father Morton Brownstein. Gary sees dedication to detail as Acme’s number one goal and is pleased to be working to that end with his cousins, Eric and Robert Caslow. In his spare time, Gary’s passion for food and infectious enthusiasm for golf doesn't disappear. He has made it a goal to try every restaurant in town and create his own recipes while spending time with his wife and daughter.
