About Denton

The Denton branch was established by former Ben E. Keith President, Troy LaGrone. Troy was the Assistant General Manager in Dallas, but was assigned as the Denton Branch Manager once Denton County went wet. The warehouse was constructed on Interstate 35, and opened in 1978. Business was so good in Denton at that time that the company had to add onto the warehouse only one year later, in 1979. This was the last time Troy LaGrone ever built a warehouse too small. The branch was remodeled one more time in 1995 and has a total square footage of 121,862; with 40,149 sq. feet of package space and 2,142 sq. feet of refrigerated keg space.
