Parmesan.com, 13 Years in the Making
Syracuse native and cheese enthusiast Nancy Radke bought the domain name parmesan.com 13 years ago. However, it has taken her until this may to convince the Italian producers of Parmigiano-Reggiano to allow her to promote their cheeses on the English language website.
Thirteen years ago, Nancy Radke, of Syracuse, secured the website name "parmesan.com."
It took until late last year to convince the Italian dairy group that makes authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese to let her create an English-language website to promote their product.
"It was me being a pain in the neck," Radke said. "The Italians do things slowly. They have 800 years of history. What's 13 years to them?"
