Create Scale and Add Value

Legacy Food Group has a Mission...

Build the independent distribution business in order to keep the industry vibrant. Innovation comes from necessity! Distributors have to be innovative to compete with bigger, better funded competitors.

Legacy Food Group will acquire and partner with these companies to create a much larger entity. Scale creates synergies, shared buying power, and collaboration on best practices.

What makes Legacy Food Group different is our distributor members will retain their name and local recognition, operating with autonomy that helps preserve their reputation and standing with the local community.

As markets are re-balancing, well-managed companies will regain and grow market share as corporate distributors will impose ever more unfriendly requirements on customers. A well-organized group of aligned independents can greatly outperform these competitors, earning new business from hungry operators looking for an alternative.
