Steve and Joanne Manolakis.

Atlantic Fish was founded in 1960, when before dawn each day Steve Manolakis traveled from Canton to Cleveland to purchase fresh fish for his retail store. Failure was not an option, so hard work was the order of the day. After a quick cleanup, it was out the door to sell his extra inventory to the local restaurants.

It quickly became apparent that there was a need for more than fish and seafood at the local markets and dining establishments. His business grew, with service and quality as key imperatives.

It’s now 57 years later, and Atlantic Food Distributors is owned and operated by second-generation family member, Stan Manolakis. With over 12,000 line items encompassing all foodservice categories, Quality and Service are still the order of the day, but with the added dimension of technology to further provide the best possible buying experience for our customers.

We have a strong management team and dedicated staff in place and we welcome the opportunity to partner with you. With Atlantic Foods, it is always the “Quality you expect…Service you deserve!”
