Gordon Restaurant Market to Open on Elmwood

A 40,000 square foot wholesale food operation is currently being built at 1959 Elmwood Avenue, directly behind the new Checker’s drive-thru restaurant. With 170 locations, mainly in the Great Lakes region, this is the first Gordon Restaurant Market/Gordon Food Service to open in NYS.

Gordon Restaurant Market is the latest concept from Gordon Food Service—the largest family-managed broadline foodservice distribution company in North America—that’s designed and built based on the way you shop.

Not only is Gordon new to Buffalo, the ‘market’ concept is new to the company’s flagship operation – Gordon Food Service (115 years in business). Gordon is going to be competing with companies like US Foods, as restaurateurs will have the ability to be matched with a rep who can help to navigate the products. Orders can be phoned in or emailed in, which is a huge convenience not widely offered in the area. The company supplies products to any business owner with a Tax ID number.

The coming of this market to the city is a big deal for anyone that deals with large food orders. One of the biggest and widely used wholesale food supply outfits in the region, Restaurant Depot, is located in Cheektowaga, making the demand for this type of service that much greater in the city. This will be a great convenience for urban restaurants.
