For more than 27 years, Favorite Foods has been the region’s go-to independent food distribution company, building a reputation with quality products, excellent customer service, and a focus on working with locally owned restaurants and businesses while remaining environmentally responsible.

Started in 1978 by brothers Chris and Jeff Barstow, Favorite Foods offers everything from small wares, paper products and cleaning supplies to dry groceries, meats, dairy products, and frozen goods. A large portion of those items are eco-friendly, locally sourced or compostable. In the recent past, the company added a 527-panel, 140-kilowatt solar installations to its warehouse.
