Jacmar was founded 1959. In the early 1960’s, Jacmar Foodservice, then known as Jacmar Sales, began by selling glassware and sundries to local motels, apartments and restaurants eventually expanding into a full service distributor. Jacmar Foodservice moved into its first distribution center in Alhambra, CA in 1966.
The Alhambra facility consisted of one loading dock and 9,000 square feet. This facility served us well until 1988 when we moved into our 30,000 square foot Meridian distribution center which coincided with our expansion of our broadline foodservice customer base. It was around this same time that Jacmar Foodservice purchased the Gardenia Foodservice Division. Our continued growth led to us building our 87,000 square foot Irwindale distribution center in 1999. Five years later, Jacmar Foodservice acquired a regional foodservice distributor which allowed us to expand our operations and service area to include the full states of California and Nevada.
