Who We Are
Coal Miners Felix and John Ronchetti founded Ronchetti Distributing Company in 1906 in Benld, Illinois. In 1914 our operations moved to Nokomis, Illinois, as Felix had partnered with Anheuser-Busch, starting our long-standing relationship with the King of Beers.
By 1935, Felix was able to expand our relationship with Anheuser-Busch, purchasing the territory in Mattoon from the Kull family. Our operations have remained in these two rural towns to this day.
After the war, Felix’s son Frank took over the Mattoon Operation. Together they further expanded their portfolio to include sprits and wine, but ultimately settled exclusively into the beer business.
Today, Ronchetti Distributing is run by its 3rd generation, Robert Ronchetti. Joining the company in 1971, Robert has been President of the company for over 40 years. As the company continues to prosper with its mainstay of Anhueser-Busch products, it is ever evolving to carry top tier craft beers and non-alcoholic beverages.
Our mission is to strive to be the #1 beer distributor in both product and service in our market area.
To be the beverage distributor that provides our accounts with the highest quality and freshest products while maintaining the best customer service levels and market share in our territories.
