Smart Foodservice Warehouse Stores is planning to expand its store network with a new location in Kalispell, Montana, US.

Located at 1031 E US HWY 2, the new store will mark its second location in the state and the 68th location for the company in the Western US.

The 23,500ft² Kalispell store will offer various products for local foodservice businesses, as well as other product and supply necessities.

The company will feature more than 8,000 items products at the store, including fresh meat and produce, cheese, dairy and deli products, frozen seafood, appetizers, french fries, grocery products, baking ingredients, beverages, bread and tortillas, janitorial supplies, catering supplies, tableware, and barware.

Smart Foodservice sales and marketing vice-president John Mathews said: “Our stores provide foodservice operators access to high-quality ingredients, without having to worry about inflated delivery prices and fees.

“We offer an assortment that includes major national brands, as well as excellent private label products through our First Street-branded items. We are excited to serve new and existing customers in the Kalispell area.”

In addition, the store will serve various non-profit organisations, schools, church groups, caterers and other individuals.

Based in Portland, Oregon, Smart Foodservice currently operates 67 wholesale stores in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Utah to serve the foodservice industry.

The company is owned by funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management.

In July, Smart Foodservice Warehouse Stores partnered with membership-based online marketplace Shipt to offer same-day delivery across 15 markets in the US.
