We dedicate the Re-launch of Black Biscuit to one of the original Co-founders
Joe "Papa Biscuit" Zambri
Joe passed away in 2012 after losing a six-month battle with brain cancer.
Black Biscuits new corporate name is "Zambri & Sons" in memory of Joe.
The first product out of the gate was our Biscuit Pro Pant, which became a staple on teams and associations around the USA and could be found on teams in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and across Europe. This pant became the pant all other roller hockey pants aspired to be. We also introduced a price point mesh pant and light weight polyester league jersey that became staples of the brand for several years to come.
In 1999 after several years of extensive travel supporting the growth of roller hockey and spreading Black Biscuit goodwill around the world, Paul “The Face” Biscuit took a leave of absence to begin his next journey in parts unknown. With the lead singer gone, “Papa Biscuit” Joe and “Samurai Biscuit” Ken took control of the company until they closed the doors in 2006.
In 2010 “Papa Biscuit” Joe Zambri was diagnosed with brain cancer and after a six short months passed away. A sad moment in Black Biscuit annals, but a moment that realigned the stars and thus began the rebirth of a brand that should have never gone away. We look forward to a great future providing the coolest hockey uniforms and apparel for all of our past and future fans, and having a blast doing it. We hope you will join us for the ride!
