Anderson-DuBose acquires New York distribution center

LORDSTOWN – A fast-food distribution center here has acquired a Rochester, N.Y.-based distribution center, the company announced last week.

The Anderson-DuBose Company has taken over the center from Golden State Foods. The New York facility services more than 200 McDonald’s restaurants in New York and Pennsylvania and employs about 90 workers.

The acquisition will expand the Lordstown-based company’s annual revenues by about $170 million annually to the company’s 2012 revenues of about $456 million.

“We are excited for the growth opportunity,” said Anderson-DuBose chairman and chief executive officer. He noted that Golden State Foods’ focus on “operational excellence and customer-focused culture” create a “good synergy with our existing distribution operations in Lordstown.”

Through this acquisition, Anderson-DuBose will maximize efficiencies and strengthen its distribution network for western New York, according to a statement released by the company.

Anderson-DuBose’s 158,000-square-foot Lordstown headquarters opened in April 2012. The location supplies more than 540 McDonald’s and Chipotle Restaurants in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia.

The building located on state Route 45 houses office space with 11 receiving and 25 shipping docks accompanied by multi-temperature storage. The center inventories more than 800 items including frozen, refrigerated, dry food, paper, operating supplies and promotional items for McDonald’s and Chipotle restaurants.
