1980 - Now
The 80's brought many new, exciting changes to the company. Spring buying shows were and still are held annually, we entered the retail grocery business as well as the institutional food business and started to distribute the full line of Bridgeman dairy products which made the Al Sandstrom Company the most complete distributor in the Midwest. In 1990, we built our new facility in LaPrairie and changed our name to Sandstrom's. David and Mary's daughter, Julie, joined the Sandstrom team in 1992 and son, Dean, in 1996. Today, the family company employs over 75 people and continues to grow, servicing greater Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.
