Legacy Foodservice Alliance Announces Seven New Distributor Members

Legacy Foodservice Alliance, the distributor procurement and marketing group based in Richmond, announces the addition of seven distribution companies as new members.

Legacy is led by industry veterans Stephen Push, Donald Hughes, and Deb Winter. As the newest addition to the foodservice landscape, Legacy focuses on quality versus quantity in its relationships with distributor and supplier members.

“When groups grow too large in membership numbers, it’s difficult to retain the personal touch that helps participants stay connected,” says Push, who is Legacy CEO. “We’re strategically building a network of supply and distribution companies who are committed to a high level of group participation.”

The most recent wave of founding distributor members to commit to Legacy includes:

Davis Brothers, Inc., Oswego, NY
The Dependable Food Corp., Edison, NJ
Fancy Foods, Inc., Bronx, NY
Fancy Foods, Inc., Troy, NY
Keyco Food Distributors, Wilkes Barre, PA
Manchester Packing, Co, Manchester, CT
Zahmel Restaurant Supplies Corp., Woodside, NY

This brings the total number of distributor locations that have become part of the Legacy family to 19. The group began accepting distributor members in December, 2009. These distributors join the earlier wave of founding distributor members to commit to the group. These are:

Cedar Farms Co., Inc., Philadelphia, PA
Colony Foods, Lawrence, MA
Farner-Bocken Co., Carroll, IA
FoodserviceDirect.com, Hampton, VA
Latina Foods, Inc., Buffalo, NY
Maple Leaf Foods, Buffalo, NY
Palmer Distributing Co., Newark, NY
Spectrum Foods, Inc., Landover, MD
Thomsen Foodservice, Inc., East Providence, RI
Todd Distributors, Inc., Laurens, SC
Van Bennett Food Co., Inc., Reading, PA
William George Co., Inc., Lufkin, TX

Legacy is a distributor group that promises 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. And we’ll run the company in a transparent way—using simple, understandable processes and agreements, and a business model which everyone can rally around,” says Push.
