Carico began as a dream and today continues to be an incredible reality for all of us.
It started in 1967 when an ambitious and determined Rick Cappadona moved to Florida in pursuit of his dream.
A dream that was rooted in a belief in himself and a focus on being the best and offering the best… the best products and the best opportunity.
The power of belief fueled our early growth and was the foundation of Rick Cappadona’s ABC’s.
In 1978, Rick Cappadona founded our true commitment to excellence and began to manufacture his own line of high quality china.
Today Carico handles 9 exclusive patterns of fine porcelain china.
Handcrafted by master artisans, Each piece is made with a delicate translucency and then styled by a master artist and trimmed in the finest of precious metals.
And to this day we are the only company in the direct sales industry that offer permanent lifetime patterns, open stock and ½ price breakage replacement for life.
But Carico didn’t stop there… We realized the potential of the tabletop market and pioneered the Designer Collection of Crystal, matching patterns, developed to complement each pattern of China.
And to complete our Tabletop Program, we made the best better and created our exclusive Line of Stainless steel Tableware, 4 distinct patterns that offer the look of sterling with all the benefits of stainless steel.
Each stylish pattern offers 10 pieces in a single place setting and a full array of serving pieces.
For that elegant touch of class… Carico was the first and the only company to create the largest and most complete Collection of Fine, Hand Crafted, Crystal Gift ware… The Elegante Collection…
Today china, crystal and tableware are major part of a larger, 70 billion dollar industry… which stands as a testament to the strength and wisdom of Carico’s leadership.
