About Jarboe Sales Company

Jarboe Sales Company is one of the oldest wine, liquor and beer wholesalers in the state of Oklahoma. They were one of the first companies to be issued a license after the repeal of Prohibition in the state in 1959. The company was founded by Joe R. Jarboe, who was elected as the first President of the Oklahoma Wholesalers Association. His son, John B. Jarboe, who served as legal counsel for Jarboe Sales Company, assumed Joe’s ownership interest in the company following the loss of his father in 1980. In 2004, John and his son, J.B. Jarboe II, became co-owners/partners. Over the years, Jarboe Sales has continued to furnish quality liquor, wine and beer products to Oklahoma bars, hotels, restaurants and liquor stores with their original philosophy in mind; that customer service based on honesty, integrity and respect is the key to our survival and success.
