Giulianova: Groceria - Deli - Catering

Westminster's taste of the old world...


Meet Billy Schroeder, Owner & Chef

A classically trained chef by the U.S. Army, Bill is a licensed meat cutter, sous chef, saucier, banquet chef, executive chef, and is the sole proprietor of Giulianova in downtown Westminster. On top of that, he is proficient on the 12-string guitar. While he swears all of the aforementioned facts are true, Billy also has a B.S. in B.S.

Bill has been a member of the Knights of Columbus since 1975, and is a religious education teacher at St. John's Catholic Church in Westminster. He is a follower of Saint Francis and spent a short time as a Franciscan seminary student. His other religions include Baltimore Orioles Baseball, the Beatles, and an unhealthy obsession with the Three Stooges.

Happily married for 32 years to his wife Jane, Bill is the father of a pair of daughters Clare and Beth. You can hear his voice through the laughter on his commercials on WTTR AM 1470. He also sponsors the Giulinova Green and Gold Tailgate show, the official pregame show of McDaniel College football and basketball on WTTR's broadcasts, and he has happily fed more than his fair share of Bair Stadium tailgaters.

"Besides having the best hoagies in the entire area and beyond, Bill Schroeder is the nicest, most personable business person that I have ever had the opportunity to deal with." - Marilyn Magin, Westminster MD
