Company History

Click here for Company Overview

Grimes Warehouse Company was established in 1972. This firm's history, however, spans more than the years from then until now.

Two previous generations of the Grimes' family have provided solutions to the distribution industry. Leo H. Grimes, Sr. founded Clark & Lewis, a wholesale grocery company in 1920. Leo H. Grimes, Jr. later transitioned this company to serve Florida's food service industry. With branches in Jacksonville, Orlando and Miami, Clark and Lewis was known for its consistent, dependable performance. The company was Florida's Largest food service supplier when it was sold in 1970.

At that time, Thomas L. Grimes realized not only the need for additional warehousing services, but for a provider that was capable of responding to the more specialized services required by the exploding growth in Florida. With these needs came refrigeration, a completely U.S. Customs Bonded Facility, a USDA-MID inspection facility and a full menu of additional value added services.

Thank you for your interest in Grimes Companies. We understand how difficult it is to select a third party provider. We can, however, make it easier for you.
