The company was founded in 1993 as the Great American Trading Company, Inc., with two employees, but focused from the very start on quality dinnerware for culinary professionals and for the home. In 1997, the company expanded its offerings to flatware, glassware and tabletop accessories, becoming a total table operation, and pioneered the concept of specialty dinnerware for the commercial foodservice market with a Cuisine Collection of square, rectangular and oval shapes.
In 2000, the company consolidated all its offerings under the Fortessa name. Throughout this decade, Fortessa has been in the forefront of innovation in the tableware industry, introducing products utilizing advanced compositions as well as reintroducing classic bone china to the hospitality market.
