History: The firm was founded in 1905 in Chattanooga as E. L. Cook Brokerage.  It was purchased in 1948 by S. N. Hetzler Sr. and operated as Cook-Hetzler Brokerage Co. Inc. until 1984, when the retail and food service divisions were sold, and the late Neal Hetzler retired. Previous retail and food service principals included Clorox, Coca Cola Foods, Shasta, Coldwater Seafood, A&W Root Beer, Starkist, and Georgia Pacific. The ingredient division was retained and expanded to the Eastern U.S. region. Offices are maintained both in N. Druid HIlls in Atlanta and in the Chattanooga area at Split Tree Farm in NW Georgia.
