In the mid 1970’s the Booth family operated a modest grocery store in Gladstone Road Dandenong which was capably run by Vic and Glad assisted by two of their sons Terry and in a short time later John.
During this period the family noticed a gap in the route trade and soon began calling on retail customers offering a range of confectionery products. Very soon they realised their future was in confectionery distribution rather than grocery stores and Terry and Vics was born.
Over the next 20 years Terry & Vic’s soon became Terry & Vic Honig with the amalgamation with AG Honig along with a move to their current location at 33 Brooklyn Ave Dandenong.
During the nineties the company acquired the business of Graeme (Doc) Tolliday, our sales director along with that of GV Sweets, JL Ryan and more recently Harrison Confectionery.
Craig Bain, our managing director was welcomed on board in the late 1990’s and with his Cadbury background has completed another piece of our management jigsaw.
July 2003 we moved to our new premises at 2 Nathan Road Dandenong.

From this unit our area managers can take an order by scanning a bar-code, product search, customer history or by using our own code number.

Once the order is complete the customer can be given the order total for help with their cash flow projections.
