C&S already services several retail partners in the area.
“As the business behind grocery, we are always adapting to offer the most cost-efficient products, services and solutions, where our customers need us most. We are continuously growing and expanding our footprint and have recently opened new operations in Houston and now are excited to become a significant presence in the Pacific Northwest,” stated Mike Duffy, CEO, C&S Wholesale Grocers.

We have worked incredibly hard to make ourselves a company that doesn’t just procure and fulfill customers’ requests but is also a business partner that creates sustainable value,” said Joe Cavaliere, chief commercial officer. “Our expansion into this key geographic area is another milestone in our evolution.”
