Mena and her father Mario Baldino have always been very close. Mario worked in a store in Italy and had dreamt about owning his own store. When the opportunity came for his daughter to purchase a small Italian grocery store in Lansing, Michigan he knew his dream would live on.

Roma Bakery began as a cozy Italian grocery store, in 1969. Through the years, they have expanded their business. Today, in addition to grocery, they offer an authentic bakery, deli, and distribute their fine baked goods across Lansing.

Roma’s Italian fine foods, bakery and deli have been a Lansing tradition for over 46 years.
