Separating a String into 4 Separate Strings

Last Modified: 2010-03-31
I have the following String...

String custInfo = "Timothy Woods; Toys'R'Us; 12345; 101 Victory Street, Columbus, Ohio 43230";

Can this be done in a quicker way than just declaring 4 Strings separately?

Thanks Everyone!

As for execution time, declaring them as 4 separate strings it the fastest of them all.
