Dennis and Ilene Berman founded Bandwagon Brokerage, Inc. in May 1988. Dennis and Ilene both came from hard-working families in the food, produce and consumer goods industries. Dennis was a seasoned sales professional, having previously worked at other wholesale and retail companies. During that time, he developed a loyal and committed customer base who were thrilled to become part of the Bandwagon team. Ilene had been employed in the garment industry for several years and ran operations in the mortage business prior to teaming up with Dennis to open Bandwagon's doors.
The two decided it was time to work to build their own business from the ground-up, and they've continued doing so to this day. At Bandwagon, our very first customer is still our customer today, as are most of the customers we have served over the last 31 years.
"We've been a family-owned and operated company for over 30 years, jumping at every opportunity to provide the freshest high quality produce to our customers, from global hotel networks to local restaurant chains." - Dennis Berman, President
By the Years:
In 1988, we worked off of a small dock in the old produce market in Los Angeles. Soon thereafter, we moved to a newer facility in downtown LA, a short distance from the Los Angeles terminal market.
In 1992, we continued growing and needed an even bigger space, so we moved to a larger facility with multiple loading docks and refrigeratied environments, where we stayed for the next 19 years.
In 2011, we moved to a 17,000 square foot concrete facility with ample loading and parking in Vernon, California, a central location just blocks from the Los Angeles produce market. We have constructed 5 separate temperature-controlled environments with freezers and a refrigerated repack room for all incoming produce. We also instituted rigorous health safety processes necessary to continue the growth of our business.
