was founded in March 2016 by Wichita native and resident Ron Elkouri, who had a clear vision to provide the people of Kansas with the highest quality adult beverage products at extremely competitive prices. From day one, Speakeasy has been committed to being a business partner and consultant for our accounts so that together we may all achieve success. Speakeasy Distribution is also committed to the industry’s highest customer service while striving to exceed both our suppliers and customers expectations each and every day and displaying the highest levels of integrity in all aspects of our operations.
Distribution and entrepreneurship
have always been in the blood of Speakeasy’s Founder, Ron Elkouri. In 1932, Ron’s great grandfather, William George (a first generation immigrant from Lebanon) founded the William George Company in Palestine, Texas. Through a strong work ethic, honesty and dedication to customers, Mr. George and his family grew from a single produce stand to a multi-location full service distributor of food, cleaning supplies and other products. Ron Elkouri is dedicated to using the knowledge and example that his family began over 80 years ago into Speakeasy Distribution.
People are and will always be the cornerstone of the success and growth of both Speakeasy and the brands we represent.
