Five Star Food Service today announces the acquisition of Refreshment Solutions, a Canteen Franchise based in Louisiana covering New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Biloxi. This acquisition solidifies the company’s plan to create a continuous operational geography from Pensacola, FL to Lake Charles, LA. “When we extend outside of our existing footprint, we do so deliberately with an intent on creating operational density. We have achieved that in Louisiana with two of our most recent acquisitions. The addition of the teams from M&M and Refreshment Solutions gives us a very solid footing in the state around which we can further grow. It also puts us well over 3,000 micro-markets which is a milestone we have had an eye on for the past year,” says Richard Kennedy, President and CEO.
“Five Star is excited to further expand our retail operations within Louisiana and Mississippi. We are proud to welcome the Refreshment Solutions team to the Five Star family and look forward to introducing our unique and innovative retail programs into these new territories,” says Mark Stephanos, Executive Vice President of Retail Operations at Five Star.
