"Dot Foods has a great reputation in the industry and will be a great resource for our current and potential customers who want to drive greater efficiency into their supply chains," said Dennis Janesz, president of sales, Rich's Food Service Division. "It's important that we continue to offer customers options that help them to more effectively manage their businesses."
Both Dot Foods and Rich's share similar histories and growth stories over the last half-century. Both are family-owned, private companies that have grown into food industry leaders, each exceeding $2 billion in revenues, according to their joint statement.
"We're excited to announce to our customers and broker partners this new partnership with Rich's. Rich's produces some of the highest-quality products in the industry," said Pat Tracy, Dot Foods chairman. "They also have a strong heritage of family ownership, culture and values, much like our own. With these same guiding principles, we're forging a relationship that will enable us to serve the food industry even better, together, than we might alone."
