ABOUT FRESNO PRODUCE
Fresno Produce started from humble beginnings
in 1990. David Miller, owner/president, began the company, with
his wife Laura, after working in sales for another Fresno produce
supplier, Hobbs-Parsons Company.
When Hobbs-Parsons ceased doing business,
Miller contacted several of the company's customers and offered
to continue to supply their produce. The Fresno Unified School
District took him up on his offer and became a foundation customer
from which to grow. And grow he did. So much so that in 1996,
Miller needed a much bigger space. He purchased a building that
had once housed an egg-processing operation. Since then, the
building at 1415 B street has become the home to Fresno Produce
for 60 employees and a fleet of 25 delivery trucks.
In addition to school districts, Fresno
Produce provides fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as food
service items to restaurants, fast food chains, prisons, health
care facilities, and grocery stores.
