ZEST Communities is more than just a new name. ZEST is an attitude. It’s a philosophy. It’s a different way to look at aging. ZEST’s vision is changing the 55+ lifestyle experience, integrating active, fun-infused living within a charming village atmosphere. In a ZEST community, people enjoy social, recreational and fitness activities that are fun, promote healthy living and mental stimulation. We believe that the years ahead can be the ZEST-ful years… a second childhood perhaps. ZEST is committed to making that happen.

Concieved by Rob Baiocco and Tony Difruscio, both accomplished entrepreneurs with decades of experience in property development, ZEST Communities signals a new wave of “retirement” living.


“One of the things that I am big on is the theme park experience,” says Tony, “I’m not talking about rides, but Main Street Disney, or Universal Studios City Walk; those really neat gathering spaces… are cool places… and have features that make them a destination. This will be ZEST Communities’ brand; what will make a ZEST community a great choice.”

Rob echoes Tony’s sentiments, “We’re bringing a whole new philosophy to 55+ living. Our first community, The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills in Hamilton, will set the bar for the future.”

Live Life With Zest!
