TriMark USA, a Massachusetts-based foodservice equipment and supplies distributor, will open two cash and carry locations this month. Operating as Chef’s Toys, the stores will be in the California cities of Commerce and Oakland. When these two locations come online later this month, it will give TriMark a total of ten Chef’s Toys stores.
The Oakland store, located at 955 Kennedy Street, will open February 21 and represents the first Chefs’ Toys location in the northern California region. The Commerce store, located at 6446 Telegraph Road, will open February 28, making it the third store serving the Los Angeles basin.
When TriMark acquired Chef’s Toys in March 2018, the cash and carry concept had seven stores in operation. At the time, Chef’s Toys was the24th largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealer, according to FE&S’ Distribution Giants study.
TriMark reported annual revenues of $1.9 billion for 2018, making it the largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealer in the country, per FE&S’ 2019 Distribution Giants study. FE&S will publish the 2020 version of this study in its April issue.
