Café Arnone
Arnone Italian Imports
Arnone Hospitality was founded in 2007 by Michael Maghes in Akron, Ohio after a 10 year career as a sales executive for a local beer distributor. Initially, Michael found a niche consulting for bars and restaurants with an emphasis in digital inventory control. In addition to the inventory, over the years we have added more services to our work, like draft line cleaning, installation, menu and pricing consultation. In July of 2019, we sold this division to focus more on our café and import companies.

In 2012, Michael founded Arnone Italian Imports, after many trips to Italy visiting family and studying abroad. The initial products imported were coffee and tea from the Tuscany region of Italy for one high end restaurant client in Cleveland, Ohio. The idea was to bring the highest quality products the Italians produced, here to Northeast Ohio.
Today we continue to do this with that exact mission, just expanding our portfolio and regions from Italy where we source. Our initial client is still serving our products today, to hear a testimonial from them and learn more click the link here.

In 2013, after initial success selling coffee and teas to local restaurants and bars, Café Arnone was founded as a mobile version of an authentic Italian cafe serving the Akron/Cleveland market. Serving coffee, tea, gelato and pastries, we hit the streets of Northeast Ohio as a way to test the market of our concept, with goals to open an actual store one day. That day came in November of 2018 as we opened our first store in Fairlawn, Ohio. Please click here to see our website and all we offer.
