“Martin Brower is getting the cream of the crop with our associates—who are second to none and maintain award-winning operations that run like clockwork,” added Wetterau. “Their superior service is only paralleled by the thousands of outstanding owner-operators across the country, whom we've been privileged to serve for decades. As we continue to serve as a key supplier for McDonald's in all our categories moving forward, GSF will also be looking to add new customers and companies to our successful portfolio.”

According to the company, GSF will continue to maintain 18 distribution centers in the U.S. and in the Middle East, and in addition to distribution, GSF will continue to operate more than 25 world-class food manufacturing facilities and farms, providing an array of businesses and offerings spanning the foodservice, QSR, retail, and C-store formats across the globe.
