Distributors preceded the Victor L. Robilio Co., Inc. and was started in 1943 by Harry Kabakoff. Victor L. Robilio,
Sr. joined Kabakoff as a partner in 1950 at Dixie Distributors. In 1960 Victor, Sr. exercised his option to purchase
Kabakoff's share and thus became the sole owner of this concern. Thereupon, he created the Victor L. Robilio Company
in that same year. Victor L. Robilio, Jr. accepted the invitation of his father and joined the company in 1961. 1972
witnessed the incorporation of the Victor L. Robilio Company. John R.S. Robilio, the youngest son of Victor, Sr., started
working for the family business in 1979.
Upon the death of her husband in 1986, Cecilia Robertson Robilio assumed the position of
Chairperson of the Board of Directors. When Mrs. Robilio died in 2000, the company remained in the family and was run
by her two sons, Victor, Jr. and John R.S. Robilio. In 2011, the company was acquired by Glazer's Distributors out
of Dallas, TX.
