 Wooster’s Friendly Wholesale has new owners for growing business

WOOSTER – There is the Main Building, the OB (Other Building), State Building and Vending Building.

And in the next few years there might be another, called, “Maybe NB, New Building,” said Friendly Wholesale’s new owner, Matt Plocki, with a laugh.

It’s only been a few weeks since Plocki, his equity partner, Austin Miller; and General Manager Jeremy Menegay took over the business, so they didn’t have much time to make more formal names for the buildings, which have a total of 72,000 square feet.

The large multi-story Friendly Wholesale building on Cushman Street was recently spotted off the Wooster railroad.  The new owners call it the Friendly Wholesale Main Building.  It is one of four buildings on the Friendly Wholesale campus.

Their plans for the 72-year-old supply business at the Cushing Street facility near downtown are not ridiculous, no matter what the buildings are called.

“We’ve maintained and expanded the employee base here in Wooster,” said Plocki, who has had the same business in Pittsburgh for about 20 years. “We have 22 full-time employees and we expect to grow that to almost 30 over the next two years.”
