Shamrock Foods, one of the top-10 foodservice distributors nationwide, is expanding its business model by introducing the Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse in Phoenix. It opened to the public on Jan. 15 at 2430 W. Indian School Road.
The warehouse concept offers the commercial foodservice products professional chefs use, such as restaurant quality and sized food products as well as restaurant equipment and supplies. No membership fee is required and all products are available at competitive warehouse prices.
The store provides a convenient way for not only restaurants to shop, but also small businesses, caterers, nonprofit organizations and others.
“Foodservice trends are evolving and restaurants in particular are seeking cash-and-carry options in addition to traditional full service foodservice distribution,” said Ann Ocana, chief marketing officer for Shamrock Foods Company. “Our new warehouse concept meets this need.”
The warehouse offers approximately 7,000 professional food and foodservice items specializing in center of plate (meats, fish, poultry), fresh produce, dairy, oil and shortening, and more, including party, janitorial and business supplies. Plus, hundreds of items are Arizona grown or processed.
The Shamrock Foods Foodservice Warehouse concept was first introduced in Albuquerque, New Mexico and recently expanded into El Paso, Texas. In Phoenix, the hours are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Sundays. For more information, visit http://shamrockfsw.com or call 602-266-8044.
