US Foods is looking to expand more with the Cara Donna acquisition.
ROSEMONT, Ill. – US Foods announced an agreement to acquire assets owned by Cara Donna Provision Co., a wholesale distributor serving restaurants and foodservice customers throughout New England. The deal is expected to close March 4, but terms were not disclosed.
“We see many similarities between US Foods and Cara Donna, most important of which is the hunger for bringing value to its customers,” said Joe Cara Donna III, executive vice president of Cara Donna. “With the size and scale of the company, our customers will now have access to additional products and business solutions.”
Braintree, Massachusetts-based Cara Donna serves roughly 1,300 customers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Connecticut. Family owned company will remain open through the summer to ensure a smooth transition. Then, the business will shift to Seabrook, New Hampshire, and Norwich, Connecticut.
