Georges Enterprises Buys Food Distributor Harrison Co.
July 9, 2008
Georges Enterprises, Elmwood, LA, has purchased Bossier City, LA-based food distributor Harrison Company. Harrison will continue to operate as a separate entity under the name Harrison SR.
As part of Georges Enterprises, Harrison will join New Orleans-based Imperial Trading Company to expand the company's food distribution reach to nine states from its current five. The acquisition will also provide an inland site to alleviate disruptions like those that occurred after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
Harrison president Hal Martin will continue in that role.
Georges CEO John Georges says they will add 50 to100 new jobs in Bossier City where Harrison currently employs 150.
Georges expects the partnership to earn $1 billion by 2010. Currently, the companies combined earn $800,000.
