D’Artagnan Plans Nationwide Expansion

UNION, N.J. D’Artagnan, the leading purveyor of gourmet meat, poultry and game, is primed for expansion with the announcement of a new financial relationship with Chase. D’Artagnan specializes in farm to table meats and serving high end restaurants and consumers across the country. With four warehouses across the country and a budding e-commerce site, they distribute products widely across the United States.

The business, which has served four-star New York City restaurants since it was founded by chef, CEO and industry pioneer, Ariane Daugin in the mid-1980s, has dramatically expanded with warehouses in Chicago, Atlanta, Georgia and Houston, and with plans to grow to the west coast putting its first new roots in Denver, Colorado in April 2019. As a result of growing consumer demand and to support their expansion, D’Artagnan has solidified a new relationship with Chase based on the bank’s comprehensive range of financial capabilities including financing alternatives, innovative treasury management solutions and industry specific advisory services.

“We’re constantly looking for the industry’s emerging leaders to support their growing business with the financial solutions they need to grow,” says Maria Lucas, Middle Market Banking Relationship Executive for Chase Commercial Banking. “Helping our clients to realize their success stories is of utmost importance to us, and we’re proud to have been selected by D’Artagnan as they continue their expansion.”

Since opening their Union, NJ warehouse in 2013, D’Artagnan has seen tremendous growth. Sales have increased over 26%, with e-commerce nearly doubling. Truck delivery and distribution have significantly expanded and the workforce has increased by 60%. Anticipating a busy holiday season, the company projects to move 165,000 items through the warehouse in November and December.

“Westward growth is an immense opportunity for D’Artagnan – it allows us to service top restaurants and consumers with fresh product where we currently cannot reach,” states President Andy Wertheim. “We are excited to bring on such an important partner like Chase that believes in our one-for-all, all-for-one spirit to help us drive further growth and expansion.”

D’Artagnan is committed to growing the business’s future growth and providing top quality products to chefs, retail locations and consumers across the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. For more information on D’Artagnan products and the brand’s history, visit http://www.dartagnan.com.
