Budco Distributing was founded in 1952. That year the company, with six employees, delivered 50,000 cases of Anheuser-Busch products throughout northeast Louisiana. Charles Marsala went to work in the warehouse for Budco Distributing in 1971. He eventually became a route salesman, a supervisor, and then ultimately became General Manager of the company. In 1992 Charles Marsala entered a limited partnership with Anheuser-Busch, Inc. to purchase the distributorship. In 2000 the remaining shares of Budco Distributing were purchased by Charles and Brenda Marsala, Damon Marsala and Mandy Marsala Pruitt.
