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.
