McCartney Produce Company opened for business in July 1947 as a small produce wholesaler delivering to independent grocers and small restaurants. Our initial delivery area included only two states, Tennessee and Kentucky, and our drivers sold their produce directly off their trucks when they arrived at the customer’s location. It wasn’t until 1968 that we started accepting phone sales in advance of delivery.
Today, McCartney Produce services a broad spectrum of customers that include single location independents to regional and national chain foodservice and retail customers from our warehouse facility in Paris, Tennessee.
We offer a staff of well-trained, expert sales representatives and merchandisers who are in constant communication with our customers to ensure we are meeting their unique individual needs. Our sales professionals realize that tomorrow’s business is earned today, and this approach has translated to McCartney Produce consistently exceeding customer expectations.
McCartney Produce is in constant search of ways to improve our services and products. We understand that we must continue to present our valued customers with new opportunities. We have worked very hard to develop vendor relationships to provide our customers with access to an extensive line of both conventional and organic fruits and vegetables, a full-line of processed specialty cut to order items for retail and foodservice packs, and many other unique produce & floral items from around the world.
Our mission is to “Exceed Our Customer Expectations” while supplying fresh produce and other essential food products to our customers with an emphasis on excellence in customer service, innovation, fair pricing, and responsiveness to customers’ needs. We have been able to accomplish our mission through mutually-beneficial relationships with our customers, employees, and vendors. We truly take pride in our customers’ success because it is through their success that we accomplish our mission.
