‘We don’t just sell rubber Halloween masks. We sell characters’ – Zagone Studios (Episode 893)

Every year, Halloween fans scramble to find the perfect masks and costumes to represent themselves through Spooky Season.

For decades, a local mask maker has been there for them.

Zagone Studios in Melrose Park has been making handmade (!) masks since the mid-70s. Their business continues to grow and thrive, thanks to an innovative and creative spirit, as well as a community that actively supports the products.

I visited Zagone on a Saturday morning at the peak of Halloween season and talked with co-owner Franco Pacini and Jenelle Wittmann, VP, Sales/Marketing.
