Legacy Foodservice Alliance membership continues to grow

(September 16, 2010)—Legacy Foodservice Alliance, with headquarters in Richmond, has announced the addition of eight distributor members.

Led by industry veterans Stephen Push, Donald Hughes, Deb Winter, and Bob Staples, Legacy Foodservice is the newest distributor procurement and marketing group in the foodservice distribution landscape.  “Our strategy of maintaining a high level of group participation by building a network of carefully selected supply and distribution companies that share our philosophy continues to be borne out,” says Push.

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

  1. D’Oro Foods, aka Dom’s, Malden, MA
  2. Freskeeto Frozen Foods, Inc., Ellenville, NY
  3. Frank’s Wholesale Foods, Inc., Whitney Point, NY
  4. Magnolia Beef Co., Inc., Elizabeth, NJ
  5. Mathew’s Prime Meats Corp., West Babylon, NY
  6. Quality Food St. Croix, St. Croix, USVI
  7. Trichilo Foods, Inc., Carbondale, PA
  8. Ziggy’s Finest, Washington, DC

This group brings the total number of distributor locations that have become part of the Legacy family to 41. “We’re thrilled to pass this milestone in our growth,” says Push.  “All along, we had hoped to attract 40 distributor locations by the end of 2010.  To achieve this goal in just over eight months, nearly four months ahead of schedule, is validation that the Legacy vision resonates with many distributors.” The group began accepting distributor members in December, 2009.

Legacy is a business that continues to break with the past and leave behind group practices that have not contributed to growth for distributors and their supplier partners. “It’s our mission to provide the environment through 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 that everyone can rally around,” says Push.
