A father & Son legacy
The Heart of Riverside Liquors Riverside Liquors
In 2001, David Joudi began the adventure of a lifetime when he purchased a wine and liquor store in Jacksonville, Florida. This local shop, already known and loved by its community since 1966, was called Riverside Liquors.
Since purchasing Riverside Liquors, Joudi has poured his heart and soul into the business to make it the distinguished, people-focused establishment that it is today. Now contributing to over 50 events a year, Joudi has created a friendly and supportive community through Riverside Liquors that’s difficult to find in the modern age.
With the move into New Riverside in 2014, Joudi was able to restore the father and son legacy that first lit the flame. Just as in the very beginning, this father and son duo are the backbone of Riverside Liquors, leading and unifying the business in pursuit of providing high-quality service to each person who walks through their doors.
