Gordon Food Service is a large family-owned distributor that has been in business for more than 100 years. Retailers, restaurateurs and consumers can buy meat, poultry, prepared foods, baked goods and kitchen supplies from this company; however, the method of ordering is different for a consumer than it is for a business. Consumers must purchase goods though one of the GFS Marketplace stores that are open to the general public. Retailers or restaurateurs must first contact a customer-service associate to set up an account. They can then shop at the GFS Marketplace or opt for delivery service.
