David Hollinger, Founder of Four Seasons Produce, Inc., shared his father’s love of farming and sold his first garden crop at his parent’s farmers market when he was just eight years old. David’s passion for fresh produce deepened as he traveled with his father to the Philadelphia Produce Market to purchase produce for the market as a child. As an adult, he felt compelled to serve, so he and his wife, Debbie, spent two years in rural Mississippi providing volunteer services in a farmer’s co-op. After returning home, David resumed work in the family produce market, buying produce and managing the produce department of the company. It was then, in 1976, that Four Seasons Produce, Inc. came to life. Local bankers recognized Hollinger’s personal integrity and potential with a small loan and a line of credit. With it, Hollinger purchased a 5,000 square foot building, a few trucks and equipment so he could supply local restaurants and markets with fresh produce. To this day Four Seasons Produce Inc. remains a family-owned business. David is active as Chairman & Founder, and his son Jason Hollinger is the President & CEO.
