ROSEMONT, IL - US Foods is keeping the growth momentum going with its latest acquisition, targeting New England-based wholesale distributor, Cara Donna Provision Co..
“We see many similarities between US Foods and Cara Donna, most important of which is the hunger for bringing value to its customers,” said Joe Cara Donna III, Executive Vice President, Cara Donna. “With the size and scale of the company, our customers will now have access to additional products and business solutions.”
Family-owned for three generations, food distributor Cara Donna serves approximately 1,300 customers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Connecticut, a press release states.
According to the company, Cara Donna’s Braintree, Massachusetts location will remain in operations through the summer to ensure a smooth transition, after which production will shift to the US Foods facility in Seabrook, New Hampshire and Norwich, Connecticut.
