About Us

Family Owned

J&E has been family owned and operated for 3 generations since its inception in 1947. Starting in the back of a pick-up truck, the company would take orders at night, pick up the product and deliver the next day. This would occur twice a week to fulfill the restaurants’ needs at the time. The company has seen many changes and advances over the years. During the late 70’s, the company needed to adapt to a changing clientele that wanted on-demand produce. So, a warehouse was procured and product began to be stored.

In the late 80’s, larger companies began to sell produce. We were forced to adapt by expanding our inventory from exclusively fruit and produce to provisions including dry, canned, paper, and frozen goods.

J&E knows that the success of local businesses is essential to the growth of our own company. For this reason, we work very closely with our customers to ensure we are doing everything we can to contribute to their growth.

Quality & Customer Service

Over the last 25 years, we placed a heavy emphasis on developing personal relationships with every customer and vendor so that we can offer quality products at a competitive price. Our savings are our customers’ savings. Our mission is to create an environment with our customers that lends itself to complete transparency and honesty with a hassle free return and understanding policy. J&E has dedicated itself to bringing outstanding quality and customer service to the Outer Cape restaurants, markets, and guesthouses for over 70 years and your happiness is our guarantee.
