One Panino At A Time was inspired by the love of a good panino and taking life “One Day At A Time”. The founder of the brand Jessica Monteriso, created the mantra “One Panino At A Time” in response to losing both parents to Cancer at the age of 15 and 26.
She set up a personal blog back in 2020 to originally talk about the loss of her Father who passed away from Lung Cancer in 2009. Through this, Jessica would write reviews about each panino she stumbled across and old Italian family traditions.
At the start of 2021, things took a turn for the worse and her Mother passed away from Bowel Cancer. With a sudden tragedy, Jessica has decided to dedicate the brand to her parents whilst offering support to small businesses through satirical reviews and donating 10% of the proceeds to Cancer Research.
Her vision is to offer a roadmap to the best paninotecas in Melbourne, whilst shedding light about her grievances and humorous remarks about the pandemic.
