Our Story

The Henry A. Fox Sales story started with ties to food distribution and brewery businesses that began around the turn of the century.  In 1952, Henry A. Fox Sales was established as a stand alone alcohol beverage distributor in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  For the family owned and operated company, our goal has always been to be the preeminent wholesale beverage distributor in the marketplace by successfully marketing and selling our products.

More than 60 years from our beginning, Henry A. Fox Sales continues to be family owned and operated, has a tradition that is steeped in rich history, and a culture that is driven by success. The Fox enterprise has evolved into a state-of-the-art wholesale beverage distributor that represents over 150 suppliers of wine, beer, and spirits. The Fox Team provides the expertise of selling, marketing, delivering, and servicing our products which consist of fine wine, premium and craft beer and spirits throughout the Michigan marketplace.
