SAN FRANCISCO — GrubMarket announced it has completed the acquisition of Chasin Foods, a leading wholesale distributor of quality produce, dairy, meats, seafood, and provisions. Chasin Foods was formally an independent, family owned distributor with a portfolio of clients including markets, manufacturers, jobbers, schools, chain restaurants, single unit restaurants and large institutional accounts across the Southern California region. This acquisition follows in the footsteps of GrubMarket’s recent acquisition of So Cal Farm Network last year, which has proven to be highly successful. Chasin Foods will now be able to leverage GrubMarket’s robust produce supply chain network to quickly expand its offerings to even more restaurants, manufacturers, and food service providers. Its headquarters will remain in Southern California, and the company will continue to be led by its current leadership team, including Derek and Roger Chasin.
Derek Chasin, the CEO of Chasin Foods, has led Chasin Foods for close to 20 years, and the company has always maintained a pinpoint focus on customer service. In fact, you’ll regularly hear Derek stress his belief that Chasin Foods will only be successful if its customers are successful, and this mentality permeates across all Chasin Foods employees. From a business perspective, Chasin Foods caters to clients of all sizes, and they consistently maintain a best practice of passing along any cost savings from volume buying directly to their clients. According to Derek: “GrubMarket recognizes the corporate values and philosophies of Chasin Foods, and they respect our focus on world class customer service. Our company mindset will stay with us, as we leverage this new relationship to reach more customers looking for an exceptional overall service.”
Furthermore, GrubMarket will leverage Chasin Foods’ expertise to further bolster and grow its existing produce supply chain capabilities. According to Mike Xu, CEO of GrubMarket: “Chasin Foods is an incredibly well-respected and highly-regarded wholesale distributor in the Southern California region. We look forward to working closely together, and we are thrilled to welcome both Derek and Roger Chasin into the GrubMarket Family.”
