Gordon Food Service Acquires Glazier Foods

Gordon Food Service, Grand Rapids, Mich., acquired Glazier Foods Co., a leading foodservice distributor headquartered in Houston, Texas.

“Glazier Foods is an outstanding company with a strong family heritage. Their dedication to high-quality service and customer success is an ideal fit with Gordon Food Service’s culture and commitment to customer service,” says Jim Gordon, chief executive officer of Gordon Food Service.

“Glazier Foods has a strong reputation in our industry and a solid track record of growth. We welcome the Glazier family of employees to Gordon Food Service and look forward to working together to grow our business in the Southwest,” says Tony Groll, president of U.S. distribution for Gordon Food Service.

Founded in 1936 by C.R. “Bob” Glazier, Glazier Foods was originally a frozen foods pioneer. Today, the company delivers a wide range of food products and supplies to a variety of foodservice operators in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and New Mexico.

“The Glazier family is convinced that we could not have found a better home than Gordon Food Service, a 117-year-old family business, for our company after more than 77 years of ownership by the Glazier family. We are convinced that Gordon Food Service shares our commitments to employees and customers and that Glazier Foods will continue to grow and prosper as part of the Gordon Food Service family,” says Jim Spring, chairman of Glazier Foods.

“Becoming a part of Gordon Food Service allows Glazier Foods to continue the legacy of a family-owned business and ensures the long-term commitment to superior customer service,” says John Miller, president of Glazier Foods. “In addition, we will be able to provide an expanded portfolio of products and services to our customers and the marketplace, while providing new opportunities to our employees.”
