Past & Present

A Company with Roots

Combs Wholesale Produce Company began in 1945 in Winston-Salem, NC when William Revis Combs began repacking and selling tomatoes. His son, Benny worked alongside his father any chance he got growing up. Benny always knew selling produce was what he wanted to do, so when he graduated high school he came on full time in the family business in 1976.

Together, Revis and Benny set out to grow the company. They added accounts, new produce items and refrigerated trucks to freight their own merchandise as well as offer new delivery routes, further expanding their reach.
