A&R Food Distributors
Healthy Choices, Affordable Options, Flexible Solutions
Founded in 1986, A&R Wholesale Distributors, Inc. dba A&R Food Distributors is a distributor of healthy food and food related products. Under the original ownership that began with two vans and a vision to service local schools has grown into a prominent supplier of food and food related products to Public Schools, College/Universities, Healthcare, Hospitality, Theme Parks and other Institutional Food Service partners.
A&R’s success can be directly attributed to its loyal customers of whom the first five are still current partners, dedicated employees who embrace the value of customer service, and manufacturing partners who support independent distributors.
Products and services include:
- Frozen Foods
- Snacks & Beverages
- USDA Processed Commodities
- Grocery/Pantry Items
- Paper & Supplies
In July of 2012, A&R moved into a recently built state of the art distribution center located in Anaheim CA near Disneyland. Centrally located to its service geography, the 128,372 sq ft modern, clean, distribution center has 28 loading docks, 30′ clear ceilings, EFSR sprinklers, and energy efficient lighting system. Prior to the move, A&R built brand new efficient freezers and cold docks to grow frozen food distribution.
August 2013, A&R completed Phase II cold storage expansion project that more than doubled previous year’s freezer space. Our new distribution center will support further expansions and sustain continuous process improvements.
A&R has all of its fleet under full service leases to ensure the vehicles are modern, safe, CARB compliant, and serviced by experts. The fleet consists of various sizes ranging from straight trucks (Bobtail) to tractor trailers. Refrigerated units can each deliver multi-temperature products and are 2012 and newer models. Current reefers represent more than 50% of our total fleet..
