BACCI AND CO. is a family run business led by myself, that was truly built upon a foundation of trust and love. Our story first begins with our brand name, Bacci and Co., which is our family maiden name. “Baci” in Italian means kiss, serving as a remembrance of our past, present and future.
Firstly, as we honour the past, I started this business in memory of my Nonno (grandfather). He taught me the importance of respect, connection, and the ability to run a business with integrity and hard work. He lived his life in an old school way where his handshake meant everything, and he treated his customers and suppliers equally when it came to respect. I plan to have these qualities continue to live on through myself, our team, and our brand.
After a long health battle, he passed away in 2013. Many of my cherished memories with him occurred in a healthcare environment and, during these times, I saw first-hand the hard work of healthcare teams and their ability to constantly make a difference in people’s lives. It was this experience that changed my life and led me to the path of nursing as I too hope to make a difference in people’s lives. My hopes for our company are that we will be able to carry on my grandfather’s legacy through hard work and dedication, qualities that I admired so much in him.
Presently, I have officially completed my first year in nursing and entered the healthcare environment. This is where I came up with the idea of creating apparel that was professional, comfortable, inclusive, and personal. With minimalist graphics and sleek designs, we have worked hard to create a brand that could identify with all medical and allied health professionals. Looking to our future, we are excited to carry on the tradition of a family business while also highlighting the multifaceted aspects of the healthcare environment. We can’t wait to connect with more of you and learn your stories too!
