The distributor recently announced it is expanding with the announcement of two new US Foods CHEF’STORE® locations in Visalia, California, and Lynchburg, Virginia.
“We are excited to bring CHEF’STORE to the growing communities of Visalia in south-central California and Lynchburg in the Southeast region,” said John Mathews, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CHEF’STORE. “Whether you are an industry professional looking to fill in between your regular delivery orders or an at-home chef seeking restaurant-quality products, our teams look forward to welcoming all customers to CHEF’STORE for all of their culinary needs.”
US Foods’ CHEF’STORE is a one-stop retail format for restaurant operators, food industry professionals, community groups, and at-home chefs to quickly stock up on ingredients and supplies in a variety of sizes and offerings, as explained in a press release. Both of the new stores will include a vast selection of restaurant-quality products at wholesale prices, including fresh produce, meat, dairy, deli items, and more. In addition, customers will have access to baking ingredients, beverages, catering essentials, janitorial supplies, and other restaurant essentials.
