Pattison Food Group continues to grow in the U.S.
The Western grocery company’s Roth’s Fresh Markets business has acquired Chuck’s Produce and Street Markets, which operates two locations in Vancouver, Washington.
Pattison Food Group first expanded to the U.S. late last year when it purchased Roth’s Fresh Markets--a nine-store chain based in Oregon.
A Pattison release announcing the Roth's-Chuck's deal said both companies share the same values and “believe in supporting local first and are committed to delivering the freshest local products to their customer.”
Chuck’s Produce and Street Market will retain its name and employees, and report to Roth’s president Tim Jennings.
“We are thrilled to welcome the team at Chuck’s to Roth’s and to the Pattison Food Group,” said Darrell Jones, president of the Pattison Food Group, in the release. “This is a great addition to the group that shares our commitment to excellent quality and customer service.”
Pattison Food Group was created last year after all of the grocery businesses owned by Pattison were brought under one umbrella. The company said at the time the move was about lowering costs and finding efficiencies, while still allowing each business to operate under its existing management teams.
