About Rick Cohen & family

Rick Cohen is owner and executive chairman of C&S Wholesale Grocers, the nation's largest grocery wholesaler, with $33 billion in annual revenue.

The bulk of his family's wealth, however, comes from warehouse automation firm Symbotic, which has a partnership with Walmart to automate its 42 regional distribution centers.

Cohen, whose grandfather started C&S in 1918, launched Symbotic after tinkering around with technology to solve his own distribution problems at the family grocery business.

He built Symbotic largely in stealth, and took it public in a $5.5 billion SPAC deal sponsored by venture-capital giant SoftBank that closed in 2022.

Cohen is chairman and CEO of Symbotic, which produces fully automated warehouses. Its order backlog totals $23 billion
