Emily Chandler manages Piazza and owns it with her parents, Donna and Jeff. Emily is the (not so) secret ingredient. She has been to Italy more than a dozen times, lived in Rome for a semester, and has developed a passion for Italian food. In fact, she went to Rome to study art and ended up spending her time mapping the city by its specialty shops. Emily is obsessed with procuring the best of the essentials for the Piazza inventory. These staples are supplemented by unique regional foods rarely found in other stores in the US. Every week she finds something new.
