Our Story

DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) was founded in 1948, when Angelo DeCrescente set out to distribute only a few brands of beer from a single delivery truck. With a passion for building customer relationships and determination to succeed, Angelo’s fledgling distribution company flourished over the next seven decades. Through growth and acquisitions, Angelo’s son Carmine and his grandson C.J. would push DDC to be considered one of the most respected beverage distributorships in the nation.

Four Generations Later

Today, DDC’s leadership team includes C.J.’s sons, Carmine III and Matthew, who are equally committed to being progressive, innovative, and efficiency driven. What has not changed over the years is the company’s commitment to its customers, suppliers, and employees or its focus on community involvement and responsibility. Now more than 400 employees strong, and servicing the 11 counties including and surrounding the Capital Region, DDC is also known as a workplace where employees thrive. Voted a Best Place to Work for the past 13 years, it is clear that DDC employees appreciate the company’s commitment to their development, safety, and happiness. The overarching mission of DDC is clear- to be the best full-service distributor by providing a unique and exceptional array of products and value-added services.
