U.S. Foodservice, Rosemont, IL, has announced plans to transition its multi-unit business currently serviced from Altoona, PA, to other U.S. Foodservice locations to improve efficiency in its operations.
Under the new structure, service currently provided by the Altoona Division to national multi-unit restaurants will move to other U.S. Foodservice locations. The change will reduce the miles driven to serve these customers, according to a press release, and reduce fuel consumption and time it takes to drive.
The change reduces U.S. Foodservice's workforce at the Altoona Division by 20% of the 450 employees.
U.S. Foodservice is a national broadline distributor with more than 70 locations worldwide. The company distributes food and related products to restaurants, hotels, schools, government and other establishments.
