Indiana’s largest independent foodservice distribution company – Raydia Food Group, formerly Stanz-Troyer Holdings, LLC – announced recently that it has acquired Terre Haute, Indiana-based B & B Foods Distributors, Inc.
B & B Foods, a second-generation, family-owned company, is a full-line food distributor, restaurant equipment supplier and wholesale grocery store. The company currently enjoys $33 million in sales and has 60 employees. B & B Foods owner Scott Isles will continue to serve as president of B & B Foods, reporting to Raydia Food Group CEO Moe Alkemade.
“My family and our B & B Foods managers and employees could not be happier to join the Raydia Food Group platform,” says Isles. “We’ve seen how Raydia is dedicated to preserving our family’s legacy, while providing us with unprecedented opportunities for growth in the food distribution, school nutrition, convenience store and restaurant markets.”
“Our acquisition of B & B Foods is a perfect example of how Raydia Food Group plans to preserve the legacy and long-standing brand equity of the companies we acquire,” added Alkemade. “The goal of our platform is to invest in and help fuel growth for other local food distribution companies that join the Raydia family while enabling them to retain their individual culture and heritage.”
Alkemade highlighted that B & B Foods’ strength in the area near the border of Illinois and Southwest of Indianapolis is a strategic location that will enable Raydia Food Group to continue to grow its geography and regional footprint.
