We Come From The Ohio Valley

Our Family Created a Small Chain of Grocery and Meat Markets in With Stores in the States of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana (Eventually Opening Up Stores in California). Peter Durban started a small meat and grocery chain (1930’s) called Durban Foods in the Akron, OH area. As a member of the Volunteer Food Stores Coop, Durban Foods grew to a- number of locations in Canton, OH, Youngstown, OH and Newcastle, PA and other cities.
The family were also pioneers in becoming manufacturing and distribution partners with chains such as McCrory Stores, WL Grant, JJ Newberry, Woolworth’s, Kress and other regional chains during this time.
