DALLAS - La Familia Distributors, Inc., a privately held company that sells Hispanic foods and consumer products, has announced plans to open six "club stores" in North Texas in 2005, according to published reports.
A 50,000-square-foot store is set to open Jan. 15 in La Familia’s newly expanded, primary distribution center, located in an area of Dallas that is largely populated by Hispanics.
David Cardile, regional manager for La Familia, was quoted in the Dallas Business Journal as saying the company is looking for similar-sized locations in Dallas, Fort Worth, and the close-in suburbs, where there's a large Hispanic population, to open club stores. Cardile wasn’t available for comment yesterday afternoon.
La Familia's product lines include dry foods, beverages, candy, fabric softeners, laundry detergent, and tobacco. The company ships throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Mississippi, and Nevada.
La Familia's customers include direct store deliveries to convenience stores; wholesale club stores, like Wal-Mart's Sam's Club and Costco Wholesale Corp.; and schools, country clubs, and restaurants.
