U.S. Foodservice Buys Indiana-Based Distributor

U.S. Foodservice, one of America’s leading foodservice distributors, purchased Midway Produce Inc., a prominent Indianapolis-based produce distributor serving restaurants, health care facilities, schools, and other business and industry customers throughout central Indiana.

The acquisition will complement the U.S. Foodservice-Indianapolis division’s broad selection of fresh produce and enable more frequent deliveries to customers requiring specialty produce products. The acquisition will also provide Midway’s customers with access to U.S. Foodservice’s full line of national brand products and high-quality private label items.

Founded in 1999, Midway Produce is led by Harry Marx, who will serve as produce manager for U.S. Foodservice-Indianapolis. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We are very pleased to welcome Harry Marx and his Midway Produce team to U.S. Foodservice-Indianapolis,” says Kurt Cummings, division president of U.S. Foodservice-Indianapolis. “Midway Produce has an excellent reputation for customer service and product offerings. Together, we will expand our fresh produce service to U.S. Foodservice customers and offer a wider range of food and relatedproducts to Midway’s customers.”

“We are very happy to be joining the U.S. Foodservice team,” Marx says. “Their commitment to food safety, quality, and customer service is unequalled in the industry and we are excited to bring Midway’s experience in the produce business to their customers.”
