Flanagan will now provide food and any related products and services to the 208 Wendy’s restaurants in both provinces.
“We are very pleased that Wendy’s has chosen Flanagan to provide its stores with our unique brand of service,” said Dan Flanagan, president and CEO of Flanagan Foodservice Inc. in a company release. “Wendy’s is a great strategic fit for our business in terms of the high standards, service and quality that both companies offer to our customers. Our expansion this year will provide the space needed for this new business and at the same time still offer growth opportunities to our existing customers.”
Distribution to Wendy’s restaurants will begin Jan. 31, 2010. Founded in 1977, Flanagan is the largest Canadian family owned foodservice distributor in Canada.
