GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan – Employees at Henry A. Fox Sales recently marked 70 years in business as a statewide, family-owned and operated beer and wine distributor based in western Michigan.  

“Our story started around the turn of the century with ties to food distribution and brewery businesses,” said Brien Fox, President and CEO of Henry A. Fox Sales. “In 1952, Henry A. Fox Sales was born out of those early beginnings, and we’ve built on that initial success to establish a culture rooted in our rich history. We take great pride in our fine wine expertise, craft beer focus, spirits specialists, sophisticated sales platforms, and hardworking employees who help ensure we achieve our goal of being the preeminent wholesale beverage distributor in the Michigan marketplace.” 

Independent family-owned beer and wine distributors employ thousands of Michiganders and pump millions of dollars into local communities each year. Henry A. Fox Sales devotes itself to giving back through community investment, employment, and charitable giving. 

“While our philosophy is to provide the best service and sell our products, it’s about so much more than that,” said Amber Goodell, Vice President of Sales for Henry A. Fox Sales. “From our employees and suppliers to fellow distributors and every community we service throughout Michigan, we always strive to spread kindness, goodwill, and enthusiasm. We take great pride in our partnerships with local charities by embracing every opportunity to support them, enriching the communities where we live and work in the process.” 

Henry A. Fox Sales has evolved into a state-of-the-art wholesale beverage distributor that represents over 150 suppliers of wine, beer, and spirits and services the entire state of Michigan. They continue to invest in their team of world-class associates and their systems and infrastructure to be the best in all they do.
