Caputo Cheese Market has been a fixture in Lake Forest for years, offering its famous cheese and other Italian favorites including sandwiches and desserts.

Recently, the Caputo family decided it wanted to step away from the market and focus more on the production aspect of its business. At the same time, it didn’t want to close the market, which has become a popular local stop in Lake Forest.

Fortunately, the family knew just the man to take over.
