About Calivan Distributing

Apollo missions were getting the U.S. closer to the moon, protests were heating up over the Vietnam War, Elvis married Priscilla and the Los Angeles Coliseum hosted the first Super Bowl.

In addition, Gary Moore and Buff Atkinson founded Calivan Distributing delivering milk, eggs and ice cream to independent restaurants, donut shops, hospitals and schools.

Buff developed other business interests; Gary expanded the product line, service area and number of customers.

Calivan bought land in Fullerton to build additional frozen, refrigerated and dry storage.

Gary Moore buys out Buff to focus solely on Calivan’s customers.

Gary’s son Mark and his wife Julie, leave the high-tech industry to assist Gary with the management of Calivan.

Calivan operates a fleet of trucks that service hundreds of customers in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Our unique in-truck invoice system reduces errors and simplifies administration.

Same excellent service, quality products and competitive prices. One can say that 1967 ushered in a revolution in America; at Calivan, we continue that uprising by offering our customers a new way of thinking about foodservice. Call us today to see why … by the way, have you seen Elvis?
