GJ Food Inc


G&J History

Gerry and Eileen Lind started in the grocery business in the early 1950?s in Seattle, Washington where they owned a retail grocery store.  During the late 1950?s Gerry was recruited by Universal Services to merge a food distributor in South Louisiana into its organization.  After five years of successfully growing the food service operation of Universal Services in South Louisiana, Gerry and Eileen started their own food distribution business to service the offshore oil industry.  They founded G&J Land & Marine Food Distributors, Inc. in Morgan City, Louisiana in 1964. Mike Lind, son of Gerry and Eileen, joined the family business in 1974.  Mike grew up with the company and knows every aspect of G&J.  Mike has been the President of G&J since the early 1990?s and is actively involved in the daily operations of the business.    What started out as a 10 employee 7,200 square foot operation with 3 trucks has grown tremendously over the last four decades to a 100 employee 50,000 square foot organization with over 20 trucks!

In 2007, Mike Lind?s son joined the organization.  Erik graduated from Texas A&M in 1999 with a degree in Finance.  Thereafter, he moved to Austin, Texas where he worked for a Real Estate Research and Consulting firm for over seven years.  Erik is excited to be the third generation Lind to be part of the family business and to continue to uphold the core values of customer loyalty and service that his grandfather started over fifty years ago.
Customer loyalty & service is STILL our trademarks after 40 years in business!
