New Name for New York-Based Dealer

Buffalo Hotel Supply has changed its name.

Buffalo Hotel Supply has changed its name to BHS Foodservice Solutions.

“We are the same company. Just a new name that recognizes we do more than supply hotels in Buffalo — we are your complete foodservice solution,” said Richard Gioa, CEO for the New York-based foodservice equipment and supplies dealership. Gioia made the announcement via an email to customers and other members of the foodservice industry.

In December 2014 private equity firm Lorraine Capital acquired Buffalo Hotel Supply. And the Gioia family serves as a majority shareholder in the firm.
