TriMark USA Announces Acquisition of Century Concepts

TriMark USA Inc. CEO, Jerry Hyman, announced today the acquisition of Century Concepts Inc. in Suwanee, Georgia. The company will join the TriMark South Division to create a new division: TriMark Century Concepts.

“We are very excited about this acquisition,” Hyman says. “Century Concepts is a great company, with a customer-focused culture that aligns perfectly with the TriMark brand. Gregg Adams and his team bring capabilities that complement our depth and breadth of services, and, with TriMark South, will expand TriMark's reach in Atlanta and throughout the nation. Additionally, it extends our capabilities to a new market segment, packaged chain fulfillment.”
 
Century Concepts Inc. was established in 2000 by Gregg Adams after spending 19 years with two national restaurant chains and a national foodservice equipment dealer. The company quickly built a strong reputation for customer-oriented, turnkey service for restaurant entrepreneurs, with start-to-finish capabilities that include design, custom millwork, furniture, and equipment sales.
 
“I am proud to be joining the TriMark team,” Adams says. “Aside from working alongside some our industry’s best, joining TriMark instantly gives us access to a wider range of products and services. That means we can offer our clients convenient access to smallwares and disposables.”
 
TriMark South opened in 2009 to serve foodservice operators in the Atlanta market. It has grown to supply a diverse portfolio of local prestige accounts that include independent restaurants, event facilities, institutions, and many national restaurant chains.
 
“Acquiring Century Concepts is a significant step forward for us,” says Scott Bishop, president of TriMark South. “They bring second-to-none resources and expertise in launching great new fast casual brands. They've always excelled at tailoring their design offerings to meet customer needs. And, they've set the standard for customer service in the marketplace.”
 
Bishop will continue as president of the new combined entity.
