Legacy Food Group, a newly launched holding company based in the United States, has acquired four food service companies: Keck’s Food Service, M&V Provisions, Thomsen Foodservice, and Legacy Foodservice Alliance.

The company, backed by Quad-C Management, a mid-market private equity firm, is focused on acquiring mid-tier or larger distributors in the food service sector to create super-regional competitors.

Each of the acquired companies will continue to operate under their existing names and management teams. The goal is to maintain local ownership and management while benefiting from the scale and broader service capabilities of a larger organization.

The existing owners of these firms will also have an ownership interest in Legacy Food Group.

Keck’s Food Service is a distributor of food service and bakery ingredients located in Pennsylvania, founded in 1964. M&V Provisions, established in 1949, serves the “jobber” community and wholesalers in Ridgewood.

Legacy Foodservice Alliance, based in Richmond, is a food service supply chain alliance with over 120 food service distributors. Thomsen Foodservice, founded in 1951, caters to independent restaurant customers in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

Legacy Food Group plans to partner with UniPro Foodservice as a stockholder member, a move that has already received approval from UniPro’s board of directors and stockholder members. This strategic expansion aims to create stronger and more competitive regional players in the food service distribution industry.
