Being a locally owned business has its advantages. We are part of the fabric of the community, maintaining relationships with many of the same customers first served by our founder decades ago. We have developed a multicultural and diverse workforce with built-in opportunities for advancement. We have created a decidedly un-corporate work environment with family-friendly policies and excellent benefits. That is why so many of our employees have been with us for five, 10, 15 years or more.

And when we wanted to make our delivery service the most competitive in the area, our employees came through. We were able restructure staff hours to add a second shift that allows us to fill orders long after other suppliers have closed.

We like to say our company is "right-sized," not too small to provide the very best products and delivery options but not too big to nurture flexible decision-makers who can easily provide personalized customer service.
