“The Wasserstrom Company continues to build on its reputation for excellence. The company is data-driven and leverages its systems and processes to provide value to customers and supply chain partners alike,” said Maureen Slocum, FE&S publisher. “For generations this dealership has attracted some of the industry’s best and brightest minds, which allows The Wasserstrom Company to remain focused and growing regardless of the industry’s economic circumstances. This is a recipe for generational success.”

The company was the fifth largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealership in the country, per FE&S 2023 Distribution Giants study.
