Performance Food Group Company announced it has aligned its convenience business under the Core-Mark brand.
Now operating as Core-Mark, the convenience business of PFG services more than 50,000 customers through 39 distribution centers across the United States and Canada.
“We’re excited to bring together two best-in-class organizations under the Core-Mark brand,” Craig Hoskins, president and chief operating officer, PFG, said in the announcement. “The Core-Mark integration continues to go well, and we believe that combining our Convenience companies under the powerful Core-Mark brand positions PFG for future success. We are confident our Convenience business creates the best combination of talented and experienced people, marketing programs, technology solutions and food offerings, which we believe will deliver unparalleled value to our retail partners.”
In the last three years, PFG has become one of the largest marketers of fresh, broad-line and food supply solutions to the convenience retail industry across North America through its acquisitions of Eby-Brown Company LLC in 2019 and Core-Mark Holding Company Inc. in 2021.
“The Eby-Brown legacy was built upon great customer partnerships, product and program innovation, and a genuine appreciation for its hard-working associates. These values align with Core-Mark’s strategic approach, bringing retailers the best value two of our industry's wholesale leaders have to offer,” Scott McPherson, executive vice president and president and CEO, Convenience, PFG, said in the announcement. “I’m excited for our customers who will have a growing portfolio of ways to increase sales and profits, and for our associates who have greater career growth opportunities with this combination.”
