U.S. Foods to Acquire All American Foods

Foodservice distributor plans to expand its reach in the Northeast

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- U.S. Foods, a foodservice distributor for restaurants and retail foodservice operators, has agreed to acquire All American Foods, a broad-line distributor based in North Kingstown, R.I., with annual sales of nearly $60 million.

All American Foods was established in 1988 and has grown to offer more than 4,000 SKUs to nearly 1,000 customers in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. U.S. Foods said it will continue to operate out of its current 65,000-square-foot facility.

In announcing its purchase of All American Foods, U.S. Foods said that the deal will further enhance its ability to serve customers in the Northeast, an area of the country heavily populated with independent restaurants.

“The growth All American Foods has experienced over the last three decades is proof that their business model and commitment to customer service is strong,” said John O’Carroll, Northeast region president for U.S. Foods. “We are looking forward to building on All American Foods’ already strong reputation and bringing an even better experience to foodservice operators throughout southern New England.”

The transaction is expected to close at the end of February. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Illinois-based foodservice distributor U.S. Foods works with nearly 250,000 chefs, restaurateurs and retailers. With nearly 25,000 employees and more than 60 locations, the company generates approximately $23 billion in annual revenue.
