A local food distributor has acquired another food company.

Wyoming-based Gordon Food Service said this week it acquired Ettline Foods Corp., a broadline food distributor headquartered in York, Pennsylvania.

“Ettline has a track record of providing a superior experience for its customers and a history of growth in a competitive and changing landscape, which made them very appealing to our growth plan,” said Scott Nicholson, Gordon Food Service president of U.S. distribution. “We welcome the Ettline family of employees and look forward to working together in serving their customer base with expanded services and buying power.”

"We at Ettline are thrilled to become part of Gordon Food Service, a company that mirrors our commitment to delivering exceptional value, while remaining competitive in a constantly changing market,” said Joe Ayoub, president and CEO of Ettline Foods.

Ettline was founded in 1889 as a full-service grocery store. Today, the company serves restaurants, health care facilities, schools and other businesses and industry customers in four states.
