E. A. Naifeh and his son Sam opened a grocery and dry goods store in Glenpool, Oklahoma in 1914. They were soon on the move, supplying products to area oil field support companies in horse-drawn wagons. Later, Sam started servicing ‘mom and pop’ stores, and the company evolved into a fulltime distribution company.

Believing in the company

The Naifeh family continued reinvesting in their thriving distribution and service business, expanding from a four-county Oklahoma service area to cover all of Northeastern Oklahoma, Southwestern Missouri and Southeastern Kansas. With that success came larger and more efficient warehouse space, a diversified product line, a speedy fleet of delivery vehicles, and a loyal and expanded customer base. What didn’t change was our commitment to the customer.
