US Foods to Acquire 3 Distributors from TOBA

US Foods has agreed to acquire broadline distributors The Thompson Co., Braunger Foods and Variety Foods, which are owned and operated by TOBA Inc. Terms for the deal were not disclosed.

TOBA began food distribution in 1995 with the purchase of The Thompson Co., and expanded with the 2002 acquisition of Braunger Foods and Variety Foods in 2007. With more than $130 million in combined annual sales, the three companies serve independent restaurant, school, grocery and convenience-store customers in seven states across the Midwest.

“We look forward to building on the expertise of the strong employee base at The Thompson Co., Braunger Foods and Variety Foods and welcoming them to US Foods,” said Russell Scott, Midwest president of US Foods.

US Foods has said it will continue to operate all three locations and expects to welcome the combined employee base of approximately 250 team members to the company.
