What's on the menu at your favorite restaurant? Just ask Meadowbrook Meat Company (MBM), one of the largest privately owned foodservice distributors in the nation. The company specializes in providing food to more than 25,000 nationally franchised restaurants, including Arby's, Burger King, Captain D's, Chick-fil-A, and Darden Restaurants (Red Lobster, Olive Garden). Meadowbrook fills domestic and overseas customer orders through a nationwide network of more than 30 distribution centers. J. R. Wordsworth founded MBM in 1947 as a retail food distributor. In 2012 the company announced it was being acquired by Texas-based and rival McLane for an undisclosed price.
Once MBM is acquired by McLane, the company will continue to serve its current client base but will have full access to McLane's vast knowledge and capital. McLane is supported by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway.
MBM transports food products to customers from various distribution sites located in Alabama, California, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Texas, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Washington, and Wisconsin. – less
