About US Foods
US Foods (formerly known as U.S. Foodservice) is one of the USA’s leading distributors. With nearly $19 billion in annual revenue, US Foods is the 10th largest private company in America. Many of the entities that make up US Foods were founded in the 19th century, including one that sold provisions to travelers heading west during the 1850s gold rush. The company used the name U.S. Foodservice until 1993. US Foods offers more than 350,000 national brand products and its own “exclusive brand” items, ranging from fresh meats and produce to pre-packaged and frozen foods. The company employs approximately 25,000 people in more than 60 locations nationwide, and provides food and related products to more than 250,000 customers, including independent and multi-unit restaurants, healthcare and hospitality entities, government and educational institutions. The company is headquartered in Rosemont, Illinois, and jointly owned by funds managed by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Inc. and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
In October 2011, the company launched a new brand identity reflecting its strategic focus on creating a better food offering and an easier service experience for customers. Since, US Foods has introduced more innovative products, exclusive brands and specialized services to help drive customer growth. The company’s new tagline is “Keeping Kitchens Cooking”.
