Jacksonville's manufacturing scene is a Florida anomaly. Jacksonville is home to several manufacturers making products that one may not expect to find in the area. Here's a few.
1.Beaver Street Fisheries
Beaver Street Fisheries is an import, distribution, and manufacturing company for frozen seafood products. The company began in the 1950s, when the Frisch family decided to open a small, fresh fish store on West Beaver Street here in Jacksonville. The Frisch family had one truck, which meant that in order to get fresh products to local restaurants and grocery stores during business hours, the Frisch boys, Alfred and Hans, would have to drive and pick up the fish from the gulf and Atlantic coasts at night.
This around the clock dedication paid off though, as the company began to evolve. They Frisch family built their reputation on quality food and service. In 1979, the company established their “Sea Best” brand. Now, decades later, they are a leader in the seafood industry. Beaver Street Fisheries has sister companies, the Bahamas Food Service and Tropic Seafood, which has allowed them to offer one of the largest seafood selections within the US.
Beaver Street Fisher’s “Sea Best” brand includes fresh seafood items like crab, scallops, shrimp, lobster and fish. They now also have a full line of beef, pork, and poultry products. They are located at 1741 W Beaver St, where their warehouse covers nearly two blocks.
