Nicholas and Company (Nicholas and Co.) today announced that it has acquired C&M Food Distributing, Inc., based in Reno, Nevada.,
Founded in 1988, C&M Food Distributing has become a leading distributor of dry goods, paper products, and gourmet items essential to the restaurant and institutional food trade in Northern Nevada. “The acquisition of C&M will enrich our distribution business and improve our customer service capabilities as Nicholas and Company continues to expand throughout Nevada,” said Nicole Mouskondis, co-CEO of Nicholas and Company. “We are delighted to welcome the C&M Food Distributing team into the Nicholas and Company family and look forward to our continued growth in the Northern Nevada region.”
C&M Food Distributing, much like Nicholas and Company, has a history rooted in family ideals. From its humble beginnings in Sparks, Nevada, the Forte family founded and built a company that is devoted to its employees as well as to the needs of their customers. “C&M is excited to be joining the Nicholas and Company family and we look forward to our ability to grow our business while still maintaining our ability to exceed our customers’ highest expectations”, said Charlotte Forte. By joining forces with the Nicholas and Company family, C&M Food Distributing can continue to provide outstanding products and service, but will now have the capabilities to grow their business throughout and beyond Northern Nevada.
