The Berry Man, Inc, open’s a new Distribution Center in Oxnard

The Berry Man, Inc., a local Wholesale Produce Distributor based in Santa Barbara, CA is opening a new distribution facility in Oxnard California and is bringing up to 30 new jobs to the area.
The Berry Man, Inc., known for their ever present blue trucks throughout Southern California will begin operations out of the 10,000 square foot distribution facility located on the corner of Rose Avenue and Mountain View Road, Oxnard in January of 2016.
“We are very excited to have a local presence in Ventura County.” said Les Clark, President of The Berry Man, Inc. “So much of our continued growth has come from this area and it just makes sense for us to be there.”
The Company was founded in 1989 by Santa Barbara resident, Guy De Mangeon, when he bought and sold his first flats of strawberries. Guy would go from restaurant backdoor to restaurant backdoor selling his berries. Guy quickly picked up the nickname, The Berry Man, and the product line took off.
“Before long chefs were asking me for more and more items. Can you get me some potatoes? some mushrooms? some carrots?” Guy’s answer then is the same answer you will here today. “I never say no.”
The Berry Man, Inc. currently operates out of two facilities and employees 175 hard working people. The corporate office and Santa Barbara warehouse is located on Montecito Street in Santa Barbara CA and their second distribution facility is located in San Luis Obispo CA.
This year The Berry Man, Inc. will sell over 45 million dollars of fresh produce and specialty items to over 2000 food service establishments throughout Southern CA.
