in college studying to be an accountant, Shelly Weinstock
began his career in the produce industry at age 19. While
working at the Washington Street Market in New York as
a young and impressionable bookkeeper, Shelly saw first
hand how much more money the buyers made compared to the
college he became a NY Fruit Auction Buyer on the pier,
he became a tomato salesman, and then started his own
brokerage business. Eventually, Wakefern recruited him
as a fruit buyer where he worked for 21 years before retiring.
Shelly couldn’t just sit around playing golf for long;
instead he joined his sons and came aboard the Regal team
to carry on the Weinstock produce tradition out of the
South Carolina field office.
