In the early 1960’s, Jack Burris was head of the Delmarva Poultry Industry. During this time, KFC’s Colonel Sanders was a guest at Jack and Lillian’s summer residence in Lewes, Delaware for two nights. Late one night, high winds caused the Colonel to wake the Burris children and send them to the beach to rescue the boats. Pictured is Jack, Lillian, and Colonel Sanders.
After an amazing twenty-plus year relationship, BJ’s Wholesale Club acquired the four Burris Logistics Warehouses and operations that supports their club stores across the country. The twenty year partnership is unheard of in third party logistics and was a true testament to a relationship that worked!
“Burris Logistics has been proud to partner with BJ’s on its growth and transformation over the last several years,” Burris Logistics CEO Donnie Burris stated. “This acquisition represents the next chapter in Burris Logistics’ evolution and presents amazing opportunities for both BJ’s and the team members at these distribution centers. I am incredibly proud of what we have created and extremely excited to see the future growth for all involved.”
