Food Processing and distribution firm Golden State Foods (GSF) is selling nine distribution centers that service 3900 McDonalds locations and 365 Chipotle restaurants to foodservice supplier and distributor The Martin Brower Company, a release announced Monday.
“Completing the sale of these nine benchmark distribution centers to Martin Brower provides Golden State Foods the opportunity to support the McDonald’s system, its current strategy, and to reinvest in the future of our company, our associates, and all of our customers,” Golden State Foods Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Mark Wetterau, said in a statement. “This transaction will allow us to continue with and invest in our diversification strategy and accelerate growth.”
Irvine, CA-based GSF has supplied McDonalds with meat, produce, and liquids for about seven decades and has distributed to the restaurants for about 50 years.
“Martin Brower is getting the cream of the crop with our associates – who are second to none and maintain award-winning operations that run like clockwork,” said Wetterau. “Their superior service is only paralleled by the thousands of outstanding owner-operators across the country, whom we’ve been privileged to serve for decades. As we continue to serve as a key supplier for McDonalds in all our categories moving forward, GSF will also be looking to add new customers and companies to our successful portfolio.”
18 distribution centers in the U.S. and Middle East will continue to be operated by GSF following the transaction. The privately held firm also has over 25 production sites and farms.
