US Foods to Acquire Dierks Waukesha
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 12/22/2015

US Food announced it has agreed to acquire Dierks Waukesha in Waukesha. Company officials say the acquisition will help US Foods strengthen its presence in the Upper Midwest.

Family owned for three generations, Dierks Waukesha serves more than 3,500 customers throughout Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, Upper Michigan, and Eastern Minnesota from fine dining restaurants and caterers to schools and institutional organizations. Known as 'The Fresh Guys,' the Dierks name has become synonymous with providing the freshest center of the plate items, produce and vegetables in the area. With approximately $120 million in annual sales, Dierks is one of the leading independent foodservice distributors in the region.

"Dierks has been a top foodservice provider for restaurants throughout the area since 1963 and you don't stay in business that long without doing things right," said Russell Scott, Midwest region president of US Foods. "We are excited to build on the great reputation of Dierks and introduce its customers to the innovative products and best-in-class marketing, technology and business solutions that have made US Foods an industry leader."

US Foods will service customers throughout the region from both its distribution center in Menomonee Falls and the Dierks distribution center in Waukesha. The Dierks employees will be joining US Foods and will continue servicing customers throughout the area.

The transaction is expected to close on December 31. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
