Ebrahim Shirazi

Born in Tehran, Iran in 1947 Abe was brought up with a strong work ethic that he has instilled into Shirazi Distributing today. After completing required military service and finishing at the top of his military class Abe was sent to the United States to attend university. Abe graduated with a civil engineering degree from Lowell Technical Institute (now Umass Lowell). Shortly after graduation Abe returned to Iran to work as an engineer. A year later Abe was back in the United States and purchased Lieb’s Deli in Belmont Center, MA. Lieb’s was open for 12 years until Abe closed the doors and bought his distributor's business renaming it Shirazi Distributing. For the last quarter of a century Abe has worked to grow the one truck business into what it is today.
