About Gordon Food Service
Gordon Food Service is the largest privately held foodservice distributor in North America with sales of $5.5 billion in 2007 and expected to finish 2012 with over $10 billion. Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Gordon Food Service has Gordon Food Service Stores in the states of Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Gordon Food Service also distributes to portions of Wisconsin, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. Gordon Food Service was founded in 1897 by Isaac van Westenbrugge, a 23-year-old Dutch immigrant, by his son-in-law Ben Gordon. It was started by Van Westenbrugge with only 300 dollars borrowed from his brother to start an egg and butter delivery service. In 2009 Gordon Food Service opened a new distribution center in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and opened a warehouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin the next year. The company continued expanding by building a distribution center in Kannapolis in 2016, and now has warehouses in twelve states. According to Forbes Magazine, GFS is the 26th largest privately-held company in the United States, a list that excludes publicly traded corporations.

you are capable of handling stressful situations, working in a fast paced environment, have a flexible schedule,
and communicating with others. Once through the screening process, all new employees are required to go through
a introductory training.
