Performance Food Group Inc. (PFG) today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Fox River Foods Inc., an independently owned broadline foodservice distribution company serving customers in seven states throughout the Upper Midwest. The transaction is expected to close before the end of the year.

"The addition of Fox River Foods will significantly strengthen our position in the region and in several key metropolitan areas, particularly Chicago," said George Holm, PFG President and CEO. "This acquisition supports our strategic growth plans and will offer added value to existing Performance Foodservice and Fox River Foods customers."

Fox River Foods began operations in 1956 and currently serves more than 7,000 customers in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and Minnesota. Its customers range from fine dining establishments to family restaurants, schools, health care facilities, child care centers, hotels and concessionaires.

Fox River Foods is based in Montgomery, Ill., where recent warehouse expansions there increased its storage capacity to 326,000 square feet, including dry, refrigerated and frozen storage areas.

"Our customers, suppliers and associates will surely benefit from this alliance between Performance Foodservice and Fox River Foods," said Ken Nagel, president of Fox River Foods. "Combining their national scope and purchasing power with our reputation for personalized customer service and strong operations should prove to be a winning formula in this region."
