Our History

In 1918, Israel Cohen and Abraham Siegel bought a small brick warehouse and began making grocery deliveries to stores in Worcester, Massachusetts. They named their fledgling enterprise "C&S", and worked hard to build a base of loyal, satisfied customers.

100 years later, what started as a small warehouse and a handful of employees has become an industry leader in supply chain solutions and wholesale grocery supply in the U.S.

Today, C&S is recognized as a dynamic and progressive leader in the grocery industry. We are still family-owned and -operated, and still committed to delivering the very best in service and quality to our customers.
