Congratulations to Oppenheimer Companies, Inc. on 100+ Years of Chamber Membership!

Oppenheimer Companies, Inc. (OCI) and its affiliates are involved in commercial real estate development and management, as well as national food sales, marketing, and processing. OCI is the successor to Falk’s Department Stores and Falk Realty which was founded in the 1860's.
    Nathan Falk, one of the original founders, was born in a small village in Bavaria, Germany in 1848 and arrived in Idaho in the 1860s when he was only 14 years old. He came to meet his brothers to sell goods literally off a cart to the miners in Idaho City. They ended up ultimately creating a group of department stores with the flagship store at 8th and Main Streets in Boise. Leo J. Falk, Nathan’s son, took over the company upon his father’s death in 1903. He was also responsible for the development of the Owyhee Hotel and the Egyptian Theatre among others historic buildings in the city. Falk’s Department Stores was ultimately sold in the late 1950’s. Since then, the company has evolved in several key directions.
    In 1972, Oppenheimer Development Corporation began, and has been responsible for, some of the major downtown office buildings in Boise and beyond. These include One Capitol Center and Wells Fargo Center, in which the company continues to have ownership and management interest and responsibilities.
    The food business of Oppenheimer Companies has developed into a corporation that operates throughout the United States and is headquartered in Boise. It is a team-oriented company with diversified divisions, a well-established national customer-base, and has an efficient distribution network. Operations range from Peak Foods that manufactures store-brand and branded frozen topping which is sold to virtually all of the major supermarket and retail wholesale companies nationwide, Interstate which markets frozen potato products, Golbon, a national food service buying group with 200 members located in every major market located throughout the U.S., and Greenline Logistics, a retail transportation and logistics company.
    Oppenheimer Companies, its affiliates, and principals have had a long lasting legacy of service to the community which continues today under the current leadership.  For more information visit or call 208.343.4883.
