Step Up Awards are meant to celebrate and honor the businesses in Sullivan County that are doing an exceptional job embodying the values that Sullivan Steps Up stands for and ultimately make the county a better place.

Once nominated, it is up to the community to endorse the nominee if they think they are indeed worthy to receive recognition as an establishment that provides exceptional customer service and quality products and/or services.

For more than 30 years, Carmela Foglia, owner of DeFilippis Bakery & Café, has been stepping up for her business. Following the legacy of her parents, Carmela brought her bakery to Monticello in 1987, and 31 years later she has evolved her business, upgrading it to become a full-service café with quality customer service and products.

“If you’re passionate about what you do, you’ll be successful. Combine that with taking care of your people and appreciating the customer that walks in. Those three things are the most important when having a business.” – Carmela

We invite you to endorse DeFilippis for this Step Up Award if you believe this business is indeed providing exceptional products and customer service to Sullivan County. DeFilippis needs at least 10 endorsements from people in Sullivan County to receive the award.
