Edward Iacino first began working for his father at Seattle Fish Company in 1955 at the age of 14. Little did he know that nearly 54 years later, he would still play an integral role within the company.
Throughout his 54-year legacy at Seattle Fish Company, Edward Iacino has made many contributions that make Seattle Fish the thriving, family-owned business that it is today. After taking control of the business from his father in the mid-1970’s, Ed made the crucial decision to move the business from its small, downtown location to a new 65,000-square-foot custom facility off of I-70 and Monaco. This decision proved to be exactly what the company needed. The Seattle Fish Company product line was able to expand exponentially with the much larger facility. Now the plant sits just a short distance from Denver International Airport, which allows for daily product delivery from every corner of the world.
Now, 91 years after Seattle Fish Company was founded by his father, Edward Iacino is nearly ready to retire. His final contribution to the company will be to consult with and guide his two children, James and Chelsea, as they continue the family legacy and represent the third generation of Iacino ownership.
