Seeking Leaders is Our PASSION

We give you the opportunity to succeed.
Back in 1955, a man named Jim Hensley had a dream to bring ice cold beer – an American tradition best enjoyed with family and friends – to thirsty Phoenicians. That year, Jim started his company with just 15 employees and, together, they distributed over 73,000 cases of Anheuser-Busch beer to folks in Phoenix.

Today – with a proprietary service fleet of more than 800 vehicles and the support of more than 1,100 employees – Hensley is one of the largest family-owned and operated beverage distributors in the nation. Headquartered in Tucson, Flagstaff, Prescott Valley, Chandler and Show Low, Hensley brings refreshment to people all across the state.

Hensley has earned a reputation in the communities that it serves as being a preferred employer that excels in training, motivating, and retaining its employees. We consider the employees of Hensley to be its most valuable resources, as reflected in both vision and mission statements. We firmly believe the employee – employer relationship is a partnership. This serves as a solid foundation for employees as they strive to become the best they can be, personally and professionally.

Other than the quality of our products, the most important thing we have is each other.
