Agnes accepted the Mid-Sized Family-Owned Business Award, which recognizes Family-Owned businesses who continue to grow and evolve in an ever-changing economy, while managing to stay true to their roots. Awarded by The Philadelphia Inquirer, the 2019 winners were evaluated on their business success and accomplishments and their civic/community service.

Today, the company is sustained by a full complement of professional men and women, including a members of the family’s fourth generation, Patrick Pasquariello IV and Christina Pasquariello.
