Gordon Food Svc Marketplace
Food Supplier in Livonia, MI
Gordon Food Service began out as a butter-and-egg delivery business more than a century ago. Today, we are the biggest family-owned broadline foodservice distributor in North America and one of the biggest privately held firms in the US. We've weathered a wealth of changes since 1897. We've even instituted a fair number of them, leading the industry into new and more efficient ways of doing business. But our values remain the same as those of the 23-year-old entrepreneur who began it all: hard work, reliability, and integrity are the only business practices that really matter.
