Ace Mart Acquires Big Plate Restaurant Supply

Ace Mart has acquired Lubbock, Texas-based foodservice supplies dealer Big Plate Restaurant Supply.

The move strengthens Ace Mart’s presence in Texas and marks the dealer’s second acquisition in recent months; the first was the purchase of Wichita Restaurant Supply Company in March.

Big Plate’s history dates back to 2005. It has continued as a locally owned and operated company since that time. The team at Big Plate will now join Ace Mart, according to a release announcing the deal.

Ace Mart was ranked No. 15 on the FE&S 2023 Distribution Giants study with sales of $151 million. The company was named the FE&S Dealer of the Year in 2016, and in 2007 Norman “Gus” Gustafson, who purchased Ace Mart in 1975, was recognized as the FE&S Hall of Fame recipient.
