Diversified Foodservice Supply transitioned into a new, 153,000-square-foot distribution center in Vernon Hills, Ill., on Nov. 13.

With efficiency, customer service and expanded distribution capabilities in mind, Diversified Foodservice Supply is branching out.

Last month, DFS transitioned into a new, 153,000-square-foot distribution center in Vernon Hills, Ill., consolidating two former Illinois facilities (Mt. Prospect and Wheeling) into the larger space. The expansion will support a significant expansion to the DFS product stocked parts, smallwares and accessories for customers in the Midwest, says a press release.

Further, by the end of the first quarter of 2024, the company expects to expand into the Southwest, opening a 100,000-square-foot distribution center in Mesa, Ariz.

Both new warehouses will service DFS brands AllPoints and TundraFMP, and offer walk-up and will-call ordering.

DFS says the larger distribution network also will enable faster shipping and service by more than one transit day, with enhanced opportunities for same-day shipping on a broader assortment of products.

Diversified Foodservice Supply serves over 250,000 foodservice customer locations worldwide. DFS product brands include Mavrik (parts), Franklin (supplies) and KNG (apparel).
