Led by Ahmass, Altamarea began its journey building distinct brands and different client experiences, all joined around top quality in a comfortable, convivial setting, regardless of the price point. His client centric focus turned the more traditional business model of a kitchen view and skew to the “client” view of needs and related trends back to kitchen.
