The Mayfair Packing Company was founded in 1931 by Joseph Perrucci. Mr. Perrucci was born on Delmas Avenue in San Jose, California and began his career in the canning industry working for the [California Packing Corporation]. The Mayfair Packing Company became a partnership in 1938 when Frank I. DiNapoli joined the organization. In 1948 Mayfair acquired the facilities of the old [Bisceglia Brothers] plant on South First Street for their Sun Garden operation. Mayfair packed under its own labels, "Sugaripe", "Saratoga" and "Farmkist".

Perrucci family San Jose: Mayfair neighborhood on east side (community center supposedly next to "old Mayfair packing house" - closed in 1993 according to San Jose Mercury News).

Tried to sell 631 Sunol Street operation in 1942, but Homer Hamlin and R.S. Butler who had leases on the drying yard protested.
