Why Work Here?

Great work life balance!

Our History: The Koerner Company was founded in 1907 by John E. Koerner, whose aim was to provide his customers with world-class products and service. This remains our guiding principle today. For the first forty years we were a commodity broker of food and grain. In 1949, the John E. Koerner Company moved into our first warehouse located at Julia and Magnolia streets in New Orleans. Adapting to the needs of some diverse industries, the Koerner Company began providing supplies to such customers as Holsum, Sunbeam, Jax and Dixie, and soon became known as experts in the grain industry. In 1957, we introduced the Koerner brand “Big Chief" flour and followed up with "Indian Girl" corn flour. These fine products are still among our most popular today. In 1964, the John E. Koerner Company bought a small bakery distributor named Allstate, expanding both our customer base and our product offering. Where we are now: 30,000 square feet of temperature controlled storage. Our original Julia Street warehouse is now the site of the 50 yard line in the Louisiana Superdome. We have since moved to a modern distribution center in the Elmwood Industrial Complex. With over 75,000 square feet of warehouse space, including 30,000 square feet of temperature controlled storage; we are able to adjust to our customers' needs. We now distribute basic commodities along with a variety of specialty grains, mixes, filling, frozen desserts, as well as, a number of exciting imported products. Family Owned: The Koerner Company is actively managed by third and fourth generation Koerner's who are still committed to the tradition of bringing quality products and service to their customers. John E. Koerner Company™s Future: Still privately held, the Koerner Company is staffed by a team of professionals dedicated to preserving the integrity of the Koerner vision. We continue to be pioneers in providing new products to our customers. We have up to the second communications among vendors, customers, and staff giving us the ability to service our customers when it matters most. We are proud of our past and prepared for the future. We invite you to join our success!
