Calvada Food Sales reached a milestone, turning 50 this year. With three trucks, rented freezer space at US Cold Storage in Sacramento, and a facility in Reno, Calvada opened for business on April 1, 1968. Only one of the original owners, Thomas Mackey, has stayed on for the entire half-century. Tom is now joined by partners Bruce Wade, Bill Hill, Andy Wong, Tom Green, and Tom’s son Thomas (TJ) Mackey.
During the last 50 years, the company continued to grow and expand. In 1980, the Reno facility moved into a larger space in Sparks, NV. While in Sacramento, additional property was purchased to keep pace with the growing demands of their products.
Calvada, which started with three partners and one employee, now boasts 62 in their ranks. Congratulations on 50 years and here is to 50 more!
