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. Over time Weir offered additional categories including produce and dairy products, and baking supplies. Weir W. McDonald worked up until the time of his death, at the age of 103!
Today, McDonald Wholesale offers dairy sales, bar supplies, and more to restaurants and institutions throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho and California. Our customers range from hotels to local diners, and we have over 800 quality food vendors.
