**In celebration of Women’s History Month, I’ll be posting about women in the pizza community every few days this month. The pizza biz is pretty male-dominated, so let’s take this opportunity to throw the spotlight onto some of the women who are doing amazing work in the pizza world.
You may not know her face or name but you definitely know her work. Holly Del Re designed the generic (”stock”) pizza box that’s been all over the New York metro area for the past decade or so. It’s called the “Cafe” box (internally referred to as “Saks Fifth Avenue”) and it’s one of the thousands of pizza boxes Holly has designed. Holly works at AVCO / Freeport Paper, based in South Islip, Long Island, where she heads the art department. Pizzerias send in their art and fixes it for print.
Holly is one of the true unsung heroes of the pizza community, staying behind the curtain to produce true works of art. WE SALUTE YOU!
