In 1988, after an extensive search across three counties, Angelo purchased Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia. He added 12,000 square feet to the original house, including a restaurant and two ballrooms. With a desire to better serve the business community, a 22-room Inn was added in 1995. This completed the property as one of the most unique in the area. Starting in 1996, Mansion Catering became the exclusive caterer at the Hall of Springs banquet facility located on the grounds of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. With a busy year-round event calendar, the Hall of Springs also offers a seasonal restaurant during the classical performance series at the theater.
In Spring 2005, Angelo’s 677 Prime opened in downtown Albany’s theater district becoming the leading restaurant in the Capital District. This upscale steakhouse and wine bar has a popular Wine Society, as well as showcases some of the area’s leading artists. 2007 was a busy year for Angelo and Mazzone Hospitality. As part of another redevelopment of Downtown Schenectady, Angelo returned to his original Peggy’s location for the creation of a first class bistro and wine bar, Aperitivo Bistro. In June of 2007, Angelo took over the food service at Saratoga National Golf Club, and opened Prime at Saratoga National – an upscale steakhouse based on the style of Angelo’s 677 Prime; and broke ground on a large Grand Ballroom on the second floor of the Golf Club which opened in May 2008. The catering arm continued to grow with the inclusion of the Fasig-Tipton “Man o’ War” dining offerings. This includes serving lunch and bar fare during the horse sales in Saratoga Springs, as well as social events utilizing the grand space.
Almost 20 years to the day of opening Glen Sanders Mansion, Angelo and his team not only completed a one million dollar makeover to the ballroom and hotel lobby, but also completely renovated the restaurant to become Angelo’s Tavolo, featuring modern Italian cuisine that is like no other restaurant in the area. Also in 2009, Angelo created another division with PRIME Business Dining which includes cafeteria-style dining at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in Malta, the Golub Corporation headquarters, SI Group, Empire State Plaza and more. In February 2011, Mazzone Hospitality signed a contract with Proctors to become the exclusive caterer at their new venture Key Hall at Proctors – a refurbished bank right next door to Proctors. 2012-2013 were growing years for our Mazzone Catering division as Mazzone Hospitality became the exclusive caterer at 90 State Street in Albany, and by adding the MH Express division serving our corporate clients with drop-off catering. Mazzone Hospitality, nurtured by Angelo Mazzone, has proven it can make dreams come true, not only for our thousands of guests, but for Angelo and his staff as well. Together, they provide the area with unsurpassed events, quality catering, exceptional fine-dining restaurants, and a company founded on the philosophy of customer service.
