From the website: What is today a multi-million dollar corporation with more than 550 employees began in 1915 with four brothers, a family loan, and a little grocery store in Santa Barbara, California. From the very start, its guiding principle has been that value and service are the cornerstones of a successful business.
In the 1970s, Jordano’s went through a dramatic transformation. Seeing the growth of large national grocery store chains, Peter Jordano realized that his company would have to adjust to changing times. Deciding to focus on distributorships, Jordano’s sold their grocery stores after more than 60 years in business. It was a difficult transition, but the company soon began a new period of growth. Within a few years, Jordano’s had diversified into a food and beverage distribution conglomerate. Annual sales grew to more than $100 million.
Between its two divisions, Jordano’s Foodservice and Pacific Beverage Company, Jordano’s, Inc. posts annual sales of more than $300 million, and employs more than 550 professionals in the foodservice and beverage distribution industries.Google Maps
