GS Foods Group Inc. said it has opened a new distribution facility in Huntingdon, PA. The new distribution facility will provide meals to school districts throughout Pennsylvania.
Based in California, GS Foods encompasses a family of specialized foodservice distribution companies, including Gold Star Foods, one of the nation’s largest school nutrition providers. Gold Star reportedly serves more than 25% of the nation’s school lunch population, or 8.7 million students a day, across more than 2,000 K-12 school districts.
“As the nation’s leading school nutrition provider, GS Foods is proud to extend our company’s expertise, supplier relations and unique capabilities through a new distribution center,” said GS Foods chief executive Sean Leer. “We look forward to partnering with Pennsylvania’s school nutrition professionals to meet the needs of students throughout the state with healthy, fresh and reliable school meals so many rely on each day.”
The establishment of GS Foods’ Pennsylvania facility follows the opening of distribution center in Houston earlier this month and two centers in Oregon and Colorado last year. GS Foods now has distribution centers in nine states including Texas, California, Idaho, Oregon, Maryland, Virginia, Louisiana and Colorado.
GS Foods is owned by affiliates of Highview Capital, LLC and A&M Capital Partners.
