Before Sir Asa H. Pritchard was a successful businessman and noted politician, he worked in his father’s dry goods store in Nassau, which opened in 1874. In 1921, he took over his father’s business and started his eponymous food store, building on his father’s tradition. Sir Asa was later joined by his son Emmett (who was succeeded by his sons, Hugh and Robert). Together, the Pritchard family has manned the business through decades, overcoming obstacles - including re-opening the business only 10 days after a massive fire destroyed everything - and navigating the complexities of the ever-changing Bahamian business scene. They have overseen the expansion of Asa H. Pritchard from a small family business to one of the largest, most successful and well-known wholesale food distribution businesses in The Bahamas. Asa H. Pritchard, Ltd. is the epitome of a Bahamian business success story.
