When Paul Pascal first visited Kolker Poultry at D.C.’s Union Terminal Market in 1955, he had no intention of returning.
He arrived in his full Air Force Band uniform to visit his girlfriend’s family business, but was quickly turned off by the inner workings of one of the region’s largest poultry distributors.
“I actually said I’d never come back there, and here I am talking to you today,” Paul said.
Paul not only returned to the city’s wholesale market district, he married into the business, and over the years has become one of the most prominent players in the market’s history and modernization. In fact, he’s come to be known by many as “the mayor of the market.”
