Legacy Foodservice Alliance Adds Eight New Members

(June 23, 2010)—Legacy Foodservice Alliance, with headquarters in Richmond, announces the addition of eight distributor locations. Led by industry veterans Stephen Push, Donald Hughes, Deb Winter, and Bob Staples, Legacy Foodservice Alliance is the newest distributor procurement and marketing group in the foodservice distribution landscape.

“As groups grow in numbers, it’s difficult to retain the personal touch that helps members stay connected,” says Push.  “Our strategy is to continue to build a network of carefully selected supply and distribution companies that are committed to a high level of group participation.” 

The most recent wave of Founding Distributor Members to commit to Legacy includes:

                  A & L Supply, Inc., Belle Chase, LA                              
                  E & S Foods, Inc., Edison, NJ
                  Endico Potatoes, Inc., Mt. Vernon, NY

                  Snow Fresh Foods, Inc., Bronx, NY
                  THS Foodservice, Inc., Chattanooga, TN
                  Victory Foodservice Distributors Corp, Bronx, NY

This brings the total number of distributor locations that have become part of the Legacy Family to 27. The group began accepting distributor members six months ago, in December, 2009.

Legacy is a distributor group which continues to break with the past and leave behind practices that have not contributed to growth for distributors and their supplier partners. “It’s our mission to provide the environment thru which supply chain partners can connect, share, sustain, succeed, and thrive.  We run the company in a transparent way—using simple, understandable processes and agreements, and a business model which everyone can rally around,” says Push.
