In an era where Sysco and other conglomerates have come to dominate the food distribution industry, the Somersworth-based Favorite Foods is determined to buck the trend. As the region’s premier independent food distribution company, Favorite Foods has over the last 25 years built their reputation on quality products, top-notch customer service, and a growing emphasis on locally owned restaurants and businesses.
Launched by the brothers Chris and Jeff Barstow in 1978 with little more than “a van and a plan,” Favorite Foods offers everything from smallwares, paper products and cleaning chemicals to dry groceries, meats, dairy products, and frozen goods. Additionally, the company provides comprehensive consultation on everything from restaurant and menu design to customer tastes, costing, and business development strategies.
Moreover, their client list runs the gamut from public institutions to markets and restaurants, and includes over 20 NH School Districts, Jumpin Jack’s Java, Roundabout Diner, Phillbrick’s Fresh Market, as well as fellow Green Alliance Business Partners Robert’s Maine Grill, Bob’s Clam Hut, and Isles of Shoals Steamship Company.
