Chairman and CEO Fabiano Brothers, Inc. – Mount Pleasant, Michigan
As a young man, Jim Fabiano began to learn about the family business first hand – working in the warehouse, delivering product and attending to the office. Today, he is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fabiano Brothers, Inc., a fourth generation, beverage wholesale company. Fabiano Brothers’ roots originate in Italy where George Fabiano, the company’s founder, and his family owned a cantina. George immigrated to the United States and his hard work and dedication allowed him to transport all of his family to the United States in the early 1900s. In 1919, George and his two sons established the Fabiano Fruit Market, a retail and wholesale store. The company expanded and included beverage distribution to the myriad of products and services they offered. Fabiano Brothers, Inc. is now one of the five largest beverage distribution companies in the state of Michigan, and is in the top ten percent of volume in their nationwide distribution network. From a small fruit cantina to a multi-million dollar company, James C. Fabiano, Sr. has proven that with family at the helm, Fabiano Brothers will continue to grow and prosper for many generations to come.
