Hear From Our Team Members

"When I'm asked about what makes Gordon Food Service special, I think of the folks saying 'Yes we can!' 'How can I help?' and 'What's next?' The individuals leading from the front and making sure the job is done right. What makes us special? It's our people. It always boils down to that one thing: our people."

Dan Gordon, Chairman of the Board

"We are one of those companies that really, really takes care of the employees. In selection, it is more of the physical jobs. We would like to advertise that you get paid to work out."

Frankie, Selection Supervisor

"One of the things I felt like I inherently knew, but didn't fully understand until I got here, was working for a company that operates with integrity. People at Gordon Food Service always try to do the right thing, and they deliver on their promises. We work for a company that has a long term view, as opposed to responding to quarterly stakeholder pressures, which allows us to make the right decisions for the long haul and not just for the short term gains."
