“I know there are others who brought sons and daughters in and they lost interest, but there are still family businesses around,” he said.

Jim Sanfillipo’s son, Jamie, already is a 50-50 partner in Sanfillipo Produce Co. Inc. in Columbus.

“It’s not common,” said Jim Sanfillipo, 58, whose son is 37.

He recently merged the company with Dayton, Ohio-based ProduceOne to create Roth ProduceOne.

But there are others who have been with the company a long time who will take more control over the company, Roth said.
