The History of Performance Foodservice-Ledyard

Performance Foodservice-Ledyard was established in 1929 as a local distributor of food, equipment and supplies to restaurants and institutions of the Central Coast. Since that time, our company has evolved into a major distributorship serving Central and Northern California. Performance foodservice-Ledyard provides a complete line of frozen and refrigerated foods, fresh produce, fresh dairy, groceries, chemical solutions, janitorial supplies, equipment, small wares, and tabletop supplies. We also offer our customers specialized programs in coffee service, ware washing and laundry systems.

Performance Foodservice-Ledyard is part of Performance Food Group. Performance Food Group is the third largest foodservice distribution company in the nation. This gives us access to the tremendous benefits of group purchasing power and a level of quality control that is unsurpassed anywhere in the country. The Performance Food Group brands are recognized for excellence throughout the foodservice industry.

Performance Foodservice-Ledyard has developed a unique philosophy towards the industry it serves. We view ourselves as partners with hundreds of food service operations that depend on a consistent, quality-conscious distributor to help them meet the day-to-day challenges they face. Performance Foodservice-Ledyard has twice been awarded the “Associate Member of the Year” award from the California Restaurant Association’s Santa Cruz Chapter (SCARA), and has received the “Distributor of the Year” award from the Monterey Chapter of the American Culinary Federation (ACF) and Performance Foodservice-Ledyard was awarded Distributor of the Year from our partner buying group UNIPRO. These awards have demonstrated that our “partnership” concept has been recognized and appreciated by our customers from more than 80 years.

Partnership means more than just great service. Performance Foodservice-Ledyard is committed to working with the customer to profitably grow their business.
