"At a time when many companies are cutting back, Church Point Wholesale is growing," said Jack Casanova, president of Church Point Wholesale, in a report in the Daily World. He said the acquisition adds hundreds of new chain and independent customers, including locations in Alabama and the panhandle of Florida to the CPW family.
"The acquisition of this business adds a major operating unit of one of Louisiana's oldest grocery and tobacco wholesalers into our company, ensuring that jobs that may have gone to another state will remain right here in Louisiana," Casanova said.
"CONCO Food Distributors convenience store division is a natural fit for Church Point Wholesale. Both parent companies started in the early 1900s as family-run businesses focused on providing superior customer service," Casanova said. "This purchase strengthens our position as an industry leader and advances Church Point Wholesale's goal of expanding into new geographic areas."
