About Us


Dominique and Dana Mondella

Dell’s Maraschino Cherries was founded by Arthur Mondella, Sr. and his son Ralph Mondella in 1948 in a small 1,500 square foot store front in Brooklyn, New York. Today, still family owned and operated, Dell’s Maraschino Cherries grew and expanded under the leadership of Ralph’s son, Arthur Mondella. Under Arthur’s direction, Dell’s Maraschino Cherries become one of the largest processors of maraschino cherries in the country. Building upon Arthur’s success, Dell’s Maraschino Cherries is now a ‘Women Owned Business” under the leadership of his daughters Dominique Mondella and Dana Mondella Bentz. Inspired by four generations of family ownership, Dell’s Maraschino Cherries is still guided by the same family values, traditions and their passion for cherries that started over six decades ago.
