Larry Parks decided to open a bar and restaurant supply company in the late 1970s. After years of hard work, Parks Distributing was incorporated in 1980. In 1988, Parks opened its Tulsa location at 1111 S. Frankfort Avenue. Then in 1992, Parks moved to its current Oklahoma City location at 2400 S. I-35 Service Road. Since then, Parks Distributing has been an active member of the community in both the Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas.

Parks Distributing weathered the volatility surrounding September 11, the 2008 recession, the coronavirus pandemic, surging gas prices, and inflation. Despite those challenges, Parks continues to be committed to providing the best products and customer service in the market.

Parks Distributing is celebrating over 40 years of serving Oklahoma as a family owned and run business. The Parks family and their team of dedicated staff look forward to continuing to serve Oklahoma for many years to come.
