1585_ 7/21/14 - This is a great entrepreneur's story. Starting with fourth generation owner/president and EY Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist/Winner 2014, Kristy Taddonio Mullins of Mile Hi Foods. In 1901 Kristy's great grandfather Michael Taddonio arrived in the U.S from Italy and worked as a peddler in Denver selling fruits and vegetables door-to-door. His sons took over operating from their father's garage as Taddonio Brother's produce business. In 1956 the first McDonalds opened in Denver and mile Hi Fruit & Vegetable's was awarded the potato contract. As McDonald's grew so did Mile Hi Fruit & Vegetable. In 1968 grandson Tony Taddonio (Kristy's father) joined the firm and became the sole owner of the company, today known as Mile Hi Foods. In 1973 Tony and his wife Pam created TMT Trucking, a contract carrier with a 48 state authority for interstate transportation.
