our history

The Making of Dandy Foods

Our story began more than 90 years ago, deeply rooted in the produce and institutional foods distribution business. Through the wisdom and experience acquired over three generations, Dandy Foods has blossomed into a leading regional authority serving a diverse range of clients. Today, we proudly manage over 720,000 cubic feet of warehouse space, housing thousands of dry, fresh, frozen, and refrigerated items. Our custom meat department, boasting USDA inspection and HACCP certification, complements our extensive inventory, making us a one-stop shop for all food service needs.

What sets Dandy Foods apart is our unwavering commitment to delivering top-tier products at competitive prices without compromising on service. From single establishments to national chains, from upscale restaurants to caterers, every customer experiences the same level of care and friendly service that we've taken pride in since our inception.

We offer unmatched convenience with our 24/7 answering service and next-day delivery for orders placed before specific cut-off times. Our product selection includes fresh produce from local growers, brand-name packaged items, and superior quality USDA meats, poultry, and seafood. But we're more than just your food supplier. With the expertise gained from working with businesses like yours, we provide valuable recommendations that boost your bottom line. Our commitment to being the best at what we do has allowed us to build solid relationships that contribute to your profitability and success. From corner markets and convenience stores to small grocery chains, hotels, and restaurants throughout New York and Connecticut, our legacy is interwoven with our client's success stories.
