Meridian, Mississippi A family-owned Meridian company with roots dating back to the 1940's has expanded outside of Mississippi.
Mitchell Distributing, a part of The Mitchell Companies, hosted Meridian-area business leaders Thursday evening in a "Business After Hours." The East Mississippi Business Development Corporation coordinates the event for local companies. CEO Manny Mitchell says the company has been extremely busy with an expansion. Mitchell just acquired another Anheuser-Busch distributor out-of-state. "We made a major acquisition in Baltimore, Maryland." explained Mitchell. "Bought a distributorship up there, a Bud distributorship, four weeks ago, the end of April. So we are working on that, and it was a big move for us."
Mitchell says the reason the Mitchell companies are successful is because of their dedicated, talented employees.
