Frez-n-Stor was originally founded in the late 1950’s with five partners: George’s Feed and Supply Co., Harvey Jones, Gerald Tweedy, Berlyn Bilbry and Rolland Ensley. The initial building was 220′ x 140′ x 15′ for 30,800 square feet of freezer space. Throughout the 1960’s three additional freezers of the initial size were added along with 17,600 square feet of dry storage for a total of over 123,000 square feet of freezer space.
In 1971, George’s purchased all outstanding shares of Frez-n-Stor. During that time they stored their frozen product as well as leased space to Tyson Foods and Campbell Soup which became Pinnacle Foods. The David and Cathy Evans family took ownership of Frez-n-Stor from George’s in January 1992.
The freezer had remained the same size for almost 22 years, but was now ready to expand. In 1995, Frez-n-Stor, Inc. added roughly 3,500 racked pallet positions and 10 blast cells.
In 2004, Frez-n-Stor, Inc. engaged Team Group of Euless, Texas to design, engineer and construct a major expansion. The completion in 2005 added 10,000 pallet positions and doubled from 10 to 20 the blast cell capacity. During this expansion Frez-n-Stor also added a new office building to accommodate the growing business.
Late 2008 thru 2009, in the midst of a recession, Frez-n-Stor again worked with Team Group to expand, adding approximately 7,000 pallet positions and an additional 4 blast cells. At the same time 9,225 square feet was added to the deslat area of the building to accommodate the increased blast cell capacity.
In 2017, Frez-n-Stor worked with Team Group again to add two more freezer expansions adding 8,190 pallet positions and an additional 4 blast cells as well as a new dock with 5 dock doors and an office. This was a total increase of 1,984,416 cubic feet of storage and dock space.
