Nourishing lives for nearly a century
William Novick founded what is now Novick Corporation in 1924, selling produce from a horse-drawn wagon on the streets of Philadelphia. His four sons — Frank, Joe, Jack and Morrie – joined the business not long after, laying the foundation for a company that would spend nearly an entire century supporting nutritional needs of customers in human services industries.
In the 1940s, Novick Brothers became one of the country’s first wholesalers to sell frozen foods, including vegetables, orange juice and french fries.
Novick added dry grocery products to it’s mix of fresh and frozen vegetables and fruit.
William’s grandchildren became the third Novick generation to work in the business. Novick expanded food offerings to include meats and poultry.
