The Shirazi family has been supplying greater Boston restaurants, small markets, and institutions with the highest quality eggs, milk, dairy and other restaurant foods since 1989. After 10 years of owning Lieb’s Deli (a kosher-style delicatessen in Belmont Center), Abe Shirazi moved out of the kitchen and onto a truck. Abe closed the deli and began supplying restaurant owners and operators with product for their kitchens. That is when Josh Shirazi joined with his father with the goal of growing the one-truck operation and reaching as many small local restaurants, cafes, and markets as possible with the highest level of product and service that Abe had expected from his vendors when he owned Liebs. Since then, things have grown quite a bit. Shirazi Distributing has gone from one vehicle to nine (including one that makes a “last call” run in the afternoon in case something wasn’t right), a team of almost 20 people, a night crew, and over 12,000 square feet of warehouse space. This extra space, bigger crew and more trucks means the ability to carry more items for a greater range of customers. Today, the company continues to grow because of a dedicated, loyal, staff that allows us to offer quality products, reliable service and a relationship you can trust to help support your own successful business.
