About Ricciardi Brothers

Welcome to the Ricciardi Brothers web site! The company was originally founded by the late Joseph Ricciardi in Newark, New Jersey, where the stores always featured the highest quality products since 1929. Throughout the years, New Jersey homeowners have been coming to Ricciardi family-owned stores for decades where we provide the paint, advice, and various services that allow people to do more with their homes and commercial establishments.

In 1970, the business transitioned to the ownership of two brothers, Walter and Robert Ricciardi, who started their own paint store in Maplewood, NJ. The business continued on with the family tradition of high-quality products at fair prices, whereby the brothers aggressively grew the company throughout New Jersey, and have recently expanded their brand into the Pennsylvania and Delaware markets yielding a total of 43 locations. Throughout the years, the company has diversified into three areas with them being the retail paint stores, the home design showrooms, along with an outside commercial sales team. As the company grew, it became the largest Benjamin Moore dealer in the United States and continues to expand today as well. These achievements would be extraordinary for a public company but are remarkable for Ricciardi Brothers, since we are a family-owned and private company, whose brand is continuing to open in new markets to better serve our customers.

Businesses built on good principles withstand the test of time. Fair prices, high quality, and customer care have gone a long way in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Our beliefs in these principles while putting the customer at the center of the Ricciardi Brothers experience will ensure your satisfaction as a customer for life. We encourage you to view our website as it’s updated frequently. We can assist you with painting ideas, how to information, a vendor listing of products, and our special offers.
