U.S. Foodservice Buys Clark National's South Bend, IN, Division
March 11, 2008
Rosemont, IL-based U.S. Foodservice, foodservice distributor, has completed its pending transaction with Clark National, Inc. to acquire certain key operating assets of Clark's South Bend, IN, broadline foodservice distribution business.
U.S. Foodservice plans to service former Clark South Bend customers from the U.S. Foodservice distribution locations in Indianapolis, Indiana and Bensenville, IL.
The decision to divest our South Bend division is consistent with our niche strategy and enables us to focus exclusively on our packaging/jan-san and specialty foodservice businesses across the U.S.," said Clark's President and CEO Donald Hindman. South Bend was the company's only "true broadline house," he said.
U.S. Foodservice is a full service distributor with more than 27,000 associates in over 70 locations nationwide. The company distributes food and related products to 250,000 customers across the United States, including restaurants, hospitals, hotels, schools, government institutions, and other establishments where food is prepared outside of the home.
