Introduction to
D. C. Scott & Associates Food Brokerage, Inc.

D.C. Scott & Associates started in 1998 with 1 man, 7 principals, 1 customer and a business plan to be the best in the market. Never did David dream that he would have a team of people that expanded outside of Texas. It was his vision and determination combined with great leadership, that he would achieve these goals. His daughter Brandi joined the team in 2011; starting from the bottom to grow Brandi developed her skills and knowledge. She now shares the same vision as David; to offer a superior level of service that is memorable. D.C. Scott will continue to put people first. Developing new emerging brands and bringing back attention to established brands to expand their business in this changing and challenging food industry.
