[June 25, 2016] Rochester Democrat & Chronicle newspaper features Michael Margarone, President as he talks about DeCarolis, the industry, and job opportunities.  Looking for talent: “If you’re a diesel technician, you’re never without a job. There’s a shortage in the industry, and with our growth, it’s been a challenge."  The key to success across seven branches: "Communication and being involved with our customers and employees is key on a day-to-day basis.”  On serving business customers: If companies "have a loading dock or they distribute something, they most likely need a truck. Food service is a strong candidate for leasing because you have two things to maintain: the truck and the refrigeration unit.”  Article
