McCarthys Sponsor a Barrel at ARTBF15

| March 17, 2015

Delivery2-1024x586From our humble beginnings in Victorian London to today’s state-of-the-art facilities, the history of McCarthys is incredibly rich, spanning six generations and over 135 years in the business.
Founded by Thomas McCarthy, our company began as a fruit and vegetable stall on London’s Drury Lane in 1877. The family took their summer holidays in Great Yarmouth and in 1903 Thomas’ son Daniel opened a stall in its bustling market place before joining the Navy during the First World War, leaving his son Dan to run the stall with his mother. The pair continued to grow the business, eventually moving into wholesaling, and formed McCarthy’s as a limited company on 5th May 1939.
The business prospered, opening several depots across Norfolk until Dan’s son John eventually took over management of the business in the early 60s. John oversaw the building of a new warehouse in Norwich and moved the core of the business there before retiring in 1995, passing control to the current directors; his sons Martin, Simon, David and Peter.
In 2009, Thomas McCarthy’s great-great-great grandson Daniel joined the firm, followed by Joe, Sam, Annabel and Josh; marking six generations of our family business.
