April 10, 2019- Itasca, Illinois – Joe Maddon joined Jewel-Osco President Paul Gossett to introduce Maddon Family Pasta Sauce. The all natural, gluten free pasta sauce is derived from a Maddon family recipe and manufactured in Union, Illinois.
“The Maddon Family and the Respect 90 Foundation are grateful to Jewel-Osco for giving us this saucy opportunity to share our family’s rich dining tradition with its patrons while also assisting at-risk children and families,” said Joe Maddon. “We hope everyone enjoys Grandma Rosie’s concoction as much as we have for almost 100 years. She spoke broken English, raised 11 kids and made certain I wore a coat to school on cold days. She was one of a kind, and we loved our Sunday after church visits to her kitchen.”
A portion of the pasta sauce proceeds will go to the Respect 90 Foundation, an organization founded by Joe and Jaye Maddon that aims to develop championship attitudes through sports, academics and community involvement.
“Joe Maddon is a legend in Chicago and in baseball so selling Maddon Family Pasta Sauce exclusively at Jewel-Osco is an honor,” said Paul Gossett, President of Jewel-Osco. “This is one more partnership with Joe and Jaye and their Respect 90 Foundation as we’ve enjoyed being the exclusive grocery retailer for their annual Thanksmas program.”
Maddon Family Pasta Sauce retails for $7.99 and is available at most Jewel-Osco locations.
