Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. was first led to success by Cy Weller, a solutions-driven former attorney from San Antonio who was drafted into the Army. When he returned home from the Army in 1943, he found that he no longer had office space for his legal practice. So he used his experience from the Army to buy military equipment, including salvage trucks, from the government to sell to trucking companies. Cy quickly found the demand for and dilemma of transporting perishable items, such as fruit and seafood, across the United States. Though the trucking industry already had refrigerated trucks, there were no trucks in mass production at that time with the deep freezing capacity to transport perishable goods over long distances. Cy was soon purchasing Army refrigerators that were used for international shipment of food and installing these refrigerators into trailers. These were among our nation's first deep refrigeration trailers.
A permit was required to operate a trucking company in Texas. During the process of requesting a permit, Cy ran into a gentleman named Roger Malone who had started a trucking company called Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. Roger Malone decided to exit the trucking business, and by November 1948, Cy Weller had control of the permit and the corporation.
As the business grew, Cy decided to bring in his brother Edgar, also an attorney from San Antonio, to help oversee the operations of a new truckload route taking meat to California and bringing produce back to Texas. Cy also decided to bring in his brother-in-law Stoney Stubbs, who was at the time working at Humble (now known as Exxon) in Houston.
In the next few years, Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. grew tremendously, and Stoney was chosen to run Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. because of his strong administration skills. By December of 1960, Stoney was at the helm of Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc.
Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. became a publicly traded company in 1971 and the stock has repeatedly outperformed its competitors.
Stoney retired from Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. in the late 1970's.
Stoney's son, Stoney (Mit) Stubbs, Jr., first started working on trucks with his family while he was still in high school. He officially joined FFE in 1960 after he graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. He started as an LTL Dispatcher, and he was promoted through the ranks until he reached his goal of becoming the President in 1979 and CEO in 1984.
Under the direction of Mit Stubbs, FFE was named by Fortune magazine as one of the 200 best companies to work for in the United States and it has thrived when other larger trucking companies have refused to enter the refrigerated side of the business due to lower profit margins. Mit Stubbs continues to lead FFE Transportation Services today, as one of the nation's largest refrigerated trucking companies and the nation's only refrigerated transportation services company offering truckload, LTL, intermodal, and logistics services locally and internationally.
