How to become one of the 100 richest people in the world working out of a nondescript office park in a small New Hampshire town. The fascinating true-life tale is woven here.
There’s a reason why Richard B. Cohen escapes attention.
The chairman of C&S Wholesale Grocers Inc. works out of a nondescript office park once slated to house a county jail in Keene, New Hampshire, a leafy mountain hamlet 90 miles northwest of Boston.
The truckers who deliver goods from the company’s 54 distribution centers drive unmarked tractor-trailers. Cohen’s last interview was published a decade ago. Even the Keene Chamber of Commerce overlooked C&S as one of the town’s largest employers.
“We’re the biggest company no one has ever heard of,” Bryan T. Granger, a company spokesman, said by phone.
