Individual FoodService (IFS), a leading distributor of foodservice disposables and janitorial and sanitation jan/san products, has announced that it has acquired Central Sanitary Supply (Central), a leader in the distribution of janitorial, cleaning and facility supplies headquartered in Modesto, California. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition expands IFS’ sales presence and distribution capabilities throughout California and Nevada, and strengthens its jan/san proposition and product reach. Additionally, Central’s clients now have access to IFS’ complete portfolio of foodservice disposables, packaging, and dry and canned goods.

“I am pleased to welcome Dave, Chris, Katie and the rest of the outstanding team at Central to IFS. Central fits well with our strategy of expanding our product portfolio and distribution reach across the Western United States. We are excited to partner with such a great company,” says Kenneth Sweder, CEO and chairman of the board of IFS. “This is our second acquisition in 7 months, and we continue to make excellent progress building our teams and opening new locations. We remain acquisitive and committed to building the most customer and operator centric growth platform in our industry.”

“The combined organization creates a powerful and unique offering to the marketplace,” says Dave Martini, principal owner and president of Central, who will continue to lead and operate Central Sanitary Supply along with the existing team. “We are thrilled to be part of a larger family of amazing co-workers. Our unified vision for continued growth and a world class customer experience is exciting as we begin a new chapter together.”
