The Goeller family has over 60 years of multi-generational experience in both retail and wholesale distribution of fresh seafood and fresh produce products. In fact, in the early 1970s, it was a member of the Goeller family that executed the first lease in what became the wholesale produce market for a combination seafood/produce operation. This rich history continues today in the form of Capital Seaboard.
By 2004 Capital Seaboard had outgrown the wholesale market and moved into a 50,000 square foot warehouse facility at its current location, 8005 Rappahannock Avenue in Jessup, Maryland. Growth continued to be very robust, and the Company expanded its market area to cover the entire Mid-Atlantic region. By 2014 the Company had more than tripled in size, building a significant delivery fleet in the process, and had become a major employer in the area. The end of 2014 brought the realization that growth would once again result in the Company needing a larger facility.
In November of 2015 the Company finalized an agreement to lease 160,000 square feet of leading edge warehouse space on Assateague Avenue, which borders the Wholesale Food Market. This facility will allow the Company to provide unparalleled service to customers and maintain a position as the go to wholesale seafood and produce distributor to food service customers in the Baltimore, District of Columbia and Virginia regions.
