Since 1915

After emigrating from Greece in the early 20th century, Charles Markantes established Chas. Markantes & Co. produce company, delivering fresh fruit by horseback in Tarrytown, NY. In the mid 1950's, Charles moved the company to Westwood, NJ with his son, Timothy Markantes, changing the name to Westwood Banana Co. Today, the business operates in Hillsdale, NJ, run by third and fourth generation bananamen Timothy (Jr.) and Nick Markantes.
