G&C Food Distributors, a foodservice re-distributor based in Syracuse, N.Y., acquired a food distribution facility in Van Buren, N.Y., with plans to add 85 employees over the next 18-24 months.

Expansion to the $18 million cold storage facility, previously owned by P&C Foods, Syracuse, N.Y., will include an additional 50,000 square feet of space, a new packaging line for frozen fruits and vegetables and double the size of refrigerated docks. G&C began operations in the Van Buren site in February 2011.
