Marin and Julian, two programmers who started an apparel business with no prior experience. Originally from Bulgaria, they wanted to setup the foundation of their company there, so they could leverage the country's long-standing traditions in textile and clothing manufacturing, at the same time giving back to a place that made them who they are.

They bootstrapped DULO with their own savings in September 2016. After that they spent one year in product development, going over 70+ prototypes, testing with real people all over the world.

The DULO dress shirt, their first flagship product, is a non-iron dress shirt that removes the hassle from looking sharp. Traditional cotton shirts suck. They require a lot of care and waste your time. They are uncomfortable. Using performance fabrics, DULO redefined that traditional centerpiece into an item that stays out of your way when you need that extra bit of a stylish look.

We talk about how to run, take over and keep your restaurant relevant in the changing times and against the big guys.

Mattone Restaurant and Bar, co-owned by Franco and Vito Francese, recently unveiled updates to the menu and completed remodels to the inside that accentuate the signature brick oven. By the end of summer 2018, the restaurant will feature an outdoor patio. Franco recently appeared on WGN’s Midday News’ ‘Lunchbreak’, The Mancow Morning show on 97.9 The Loop and on Big John and Ramblin’ Ray on WLS-890 to talk about the exciting updates to the restaurant. He has also been featured in Pizza Today, Reader’s Digest, Restaurant Insider, and American Express OPEN.

The restaurant’s name is Italian for “brick”, which has become the theme for the new look. While wood-fired ovens are common these days, there is a twist with what Mattone is doing that makes them unique. Mattone offers three new wood-fired sandwiches with a delicious roll that is made from scratch. The oven is located at the front of the restaurant, and patrons can watch their sandwich be made at the time of order. The sandwich is created and fired to perfection, fresh from the oven.

Their signature, wood-fired Italian rolls were discovered by accident when testing out their rustic, brick wood-fired oven. The roll is made from their signature dough, that is made in-house, which is the same dough that they use for their pizza. They also feature a new wood-fired sandwich of the month and recently rolled out their Italian take on the Canadian Poutine – garlic fries smothered in mozzarella cheese and homemade Bolognese sauce. Their menu offers Italian cuisine with a few select American cuisine favorites, including: burgers, sandwiches, and BBQ ribs, a longtime Mattone favorite.

Aside from providing delicious menu options, Mattone contributes to the community by sponsoring La Grange Park Little League, organizing fundraisers for the Nazareth Father’s Club, and donating to St. Joseph’s sports programs, York Hockey Club, Divine Providence Church, and Ogden Avenue School’s pizza day, to name a few. Mattone is also a member of La Grange, La Grange Park, and Westchester’s Chamber of Commerce.

The restaurant has a long family history, as it was originally owned by Franco’s father, Domenico Francese. Franco now uses the knowledge he learned from his father to bring the best cuisine possible to the community.

Mattone is located at 9 E. 31st St, La Grange Park, IL 60526. For more information or to schedule an interview with Franco Francese, please reach out to the press contact above.

Tuthill Corporation, “the company with heart”, is taking a journey outside of manufacturing to discover what it means to truly be alive. In their first documentary series, The Search for Aliveness, Tuthill’s creative team – made up of Chad Gabriel (host and narrator), Erica Magda (director of photography), and Vito Pellicano (director and editor) - will travel the world to interview individuals from different backgrounds, races, cultures, etc. to see if there is commonality in aliveness.

Tuthill will not be making revenue off the of series. The docu-series is for the purpose of bringing Tuthill’s company culture beyond their four walls.
The company has launched a worldwide casting call in search of individuals from all walks of life who fit the interviewee descriptions. The filmmakers are seeking volunteers from across the globe, with different cultures, beliefs, classes, lifestyles, and values to find, universally, what people do to feel alive, how one becomes alive, and if there is a “recipe” for aliveness. This groundbreaking documentary series will allow people to share their life story and be part of something that applies to all mankind.

Each selected participant will not only appear in the docu-series, but will also be featured on The Search for Aliveness website and social media. There are currently 15 interview roles available for submission, ranging from descriptions including: “high-profile public figures” to the “outdoor adrenaline junkie”, to “a person whose mission is to save lives”, to “a patriotic career soldier who has seen front line action” to “a person without at least one of their senses”. The full list of descriptions is available at: www.thesearchforaliveness.com/documentar…sting-call
