Cochran Brothers Distributors, Inc. has been in business for over 60 years. Originally birthed by James Cochran and his brother Jack Cochran, the brothers started their journey in the baking business. Downtown Detroit was the stomping grounds of the young men with a dream to serve the best products to the masses. Seeing a need to have the products delivered all over southeast Michigan, Jim tackled the delivery portion of the business. He detected the need to quality distribution with great personal service and expertise. He contracted the best of the best products from local bakeries and was the first to offer these local specialties to businesses and accounts that were restricted to only frozen options in the past. After the death of Jack Cochran, Jim’s wife Marie became owner along with Jim. Now, over 60 years later, Cochran Brothers Distributors delivers over 800 products to over 400 accounts to southeast Michigan. The company is made up of 25 total employees: 8 drivers, 2 driver supervisors, 7 office staff including management, 6 warehouse personnel, and 2 officers.
