LOS ANGELES — CORE Foodservice, part of the Acosta group of companies, has acquired Quebec-based TTS Marketing & Sales, Ltd., eastern Canada’s leading foodservice sales agency with footholds in Quebec, Ontario and Atlantic Canada.
With the TTS acquisition, CORE now offers the same national profile and benefits in the $95-billion Canadian foodservice market as it does in the U.S., enabling CORE’s clients to go to market more simply, efficiently and consistently across Canada and all of North America.
“We have had a strong presence in Canada and know it is a different marketplace. By bringing together our two culturally aligned organizations, we’re establishing Canada’s largest and most pre-eminent foodservice agency with deep relationships and understanding of the local markets,” says Travis King, president of CORE Foodservice, North America. “Additionally, we are leveraging the systems, processes, and tools utilized by the broader CORE Foodservice team to provide our partners with consistent and best-in-class execution throughout North America.”
“As TTS celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2023, it is exciting for our team to become part of this newly expanded and leading Canadian foodservice agency,” says Jim Gray, president of TTS Marketing & Sales. “We are confident that joining CORE will enhance our shared vision of providing unmatched execution for our clients and customers. We plan to integrate our organizations quickly and seamlessly, creating the most robust agency selling team in the Canadian market.”
