What We Do

McClain’s Old Florida Gourmet is a regional distributor of shelf stable gourmet food, bulk and count candy, and Florida specialties and novelties.

Who We Serve

McClain’s distributes more than 4,500 products from 75 suppliers. Accounts range from airport concession, hotels and hospitality, and retailers such as Whole Foods, The Fresh Market and Lucky’s Market to independent grocers, drug stores, and other retailers.

We also cater to the needs of independent retailers by purchasing products in larger volume and assembling custom orders at its warehouse in less-than-case quantities to meet the inventory needs of smaller retailers.

Because of our location in Florida, near many of the nation’s top vacation destinations, our accounts also include gift shops for attractions such as LegoLand, Mote Marine Laboratories, aquariums, zoos, museums, and many others as well as the fruit shipper industry and beach and tourist gift stores.

Our Products

McClain’s carries products from national companies like Jelly Belly, Taffy Town, Boyer, Bone Suckin’ Sauce, DeLallo, and Braswell. It also specializes in distribution of Florida-produced products including Anastasia Confections, Davidson of Dundee, The Spice Lab, Reva Foods, and Tropical Blossom. The company also distributes Citra® products, which is a line of citrus-related housewares, including sippers, OJ squeezers, peeler knives, and fruit spoons. Citra is owned by the principals of McClain’s Old Florida Gourmet.

Our History

The company’s roots go back to 1987 when Doug McClain founded McClain’s Georgia Pecan. He sourced pecans from Georgia, bagged, and sold them through a large local flea market. Over the years, the business grew to include an ice cream business and additional products. In 2008, Kelly Abercrombie joined him as a partner intending to sell products at retail on the Internet. In the process, they discovered a need for a mid-level distributor to meet the needs of retailers that could not purchase from larger distributors. That same year, Taylor McClain Mock, Doug McClain’s daughter, joined the company, and now is the firm’s third partner.

McClain’s has seen exponential growth in its distribution business in just six years despite being launched during a deep recession. It also has had its own line of McClain’s branded products including the award-winning McClain’s Vidalia Onion Honey Mustard Sauce and Old Florida Treats candy.


We are committed to being the best in the business by consistently delivering a quality product while providing exceptional customer service.
