Gordon Holley, one of Westside’s owners, worked for many years in food distribution and when the small local business he worked for was bought by a larger national company he decided he needed to change course. Gordon has always been a supporter of local food and local business because he believes it is essential for the health and wellness of our local economy. While job searching he got involved volunteering for Buy Fresh Buy Local Hampton Roads and started to become more familiar with the local food community here. He noticed that there was room for growth in local food in Norfolk, and realized that if he couldn’t find work for a local company, he might as well start his own! We are glad he did!
