D&B Grocers Wholesale & Distributors roots in the grocery business go back to 1962, when Michael Hesano Sr. opened Hesano Market in Detroit.
The family ascended to the next level in 1994, when they founded D&B Grocers in the Detroit suburb of Lincoln Park. Their goal was to fill the void for an independent distributor to service independent retailers in the Detroit-area market. They quickly found success as D&B Grocers became a primary source for independents across Southeastern Michigan.
Despite the areas economic ups and downs, D&B Grocers continued its growth. In 2004, D&B Grocers moved to a new warehouse facility in Livonia, and it added additional square footage in 2006.
D&B Grocers now serves hundreds of retailers in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois.
