Sal’s commitment to giving back extends beyond the boardroom and onto the playing field as a mentor and coach in youth sports. Since 2005, Sal has led the Chelmsford Lions to victory as both the high school defensive line coach and the Pop Warner football coach. His ability to balance numerous business ventures across different industries has given him the tools necessary to teach his teams discipline and hard work on the field.
Sal’s innovative vision and unconventional thinking helps young entrepreneurs succeed. Sal is the visionary behind the Revolving Test Kitchen, an incubator and pop-up restaurant that launched in downtown Lawrence with the goal of providing new opportunities for local food entrepreneurs. This private/public sector collaboration will have a direct impact on the economic development of Lawrence by providing new business owners with a trial run of their ventures. Sal’s commitment is on-going, with consistent support and mentoring to ensure success and continued growth.
Sal and the Lupoli Family Foundation continue to positively impact both civic and charitable organizations through volunteerism, mentoring and financial contributions.
