The three Chen brothers began from a basement of an office, using a garage scale storage for their operations. Today, we have grown to a fully established 100,000 square ft multifunctional distribution center with a fully integrated ERP system and WMS system servicing the national wide distribution network for both mainstream and ethic markets. In recent year, Chens has been rapidly growing offering a broad array of products and professional services to the chains, independents and food service retailers. With the strong established business partnerships with renown brands and manufacturers, Chens has expanded into bringing world-wide brands from Germany, Italy, Portland, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, etc. to stay at the top of the newest market trend. The fundamentals of Chens’ success were initiated with the previous background history of ownership and operations of Chinese supermarket chains which enhanced the understanding of needs and challenges for retailers. Chens has become a platform to bridge between manufacturers and retailers.
