(“GS Foods”), a leading specialized food distributor owned by affiliates of Highview Capital, LLC (“Highview”) and A&M Capital Partners (“AMCP”), today announced the next step in its continuing expansion with recently-opened operations in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. The new distribution facility will provide healthy, fresh meals to school districts statewide while offering the reliability and quality expertise that GS Foods is known for.
GS Foods encompasses a family of specialized foodservice distribution companies headquartered in California, including Gold Star Foods, one of the nation’s largest and most experienced school nutrition providers.
“As the nation’s leading school nutrition provider, GS Foods is proud to extend our company’s expertise, supplier relations and unique capabilities through a new distribution center,” said Sean Leer, CEO, GS Foods. “We look forward to partnering with Pennsylvania’s school nutrition professionals to meet the needs of students throughout the state with healthy, fresh and reliable school meals so many rely on each day.”

With a deep understanding of the policies and programs that guide school nutrition, Gold Star Foods’ new facility in Huntingdon will provide top-notch service to Pennsylvania school districts, while continuing to expand GS Foods’ reach and footprint nationally.
