Weir W. McDonald began a candy and tobacco sales business in 1926 in Medford. In 1928 he moved the business to Eugene on Olive Street. As his business grew, Weir moved to a larger location near the train depot. In addition to candy and tobacco he expanded the variety of products he sold to include wine, beer, and fountain goods. The business was operated under the name “McDonald Candy Co.”.
In 1959 he moved to a larger warehouse on West Broadway, our current location, eventually expanding into the institutional food categories. With this expansion, the Company became a broadline, foodservice distribution company operating under the name, McDonald Wholesale Co. Over time Weir offered additional categories including produce and dairy products. Weir W. McDonald worked up until the time of his death, at the age of 103!
We take pride in the fact that we serve a diverse, dynamic client base. So it’s only natural that our food distribution solutions meet the unique needs of these partners.
