GrubMarket acquires produce and dairy provider Vaccaro & Sons

GrubMarket, a US food technology startup, has acquired Vaccaro & Sons, a produce and dairy provider in St. Louis, Missouri, for an undisclosed price.

Vaccaro & Sons caters to local grocery shops, country clubs, caterers, restaurants, schools, and eldercare facilities in St. Louis, where it is claimed to be the second biggest produce provider.

The company has been in business since 1982.

In January 2021, Vaccaro & Sons acquired Adolph & Ceresia Produce in a move to expedite its market expansion. Currently, the company’s infrastructure and fleet of delivery trucks supply to hundreds of customers in the St. Louis area.

GrubMarket said that the produce and dairy provider will continue to be run by its current leadership team of Dale Vaccaro, Dean Vaccaro, and Rick Massey.

We are thrilled to learn that GrubMarket shares this same mission of supporting growers and serving customers with the highest standard. We sincerely look forward to joining the GrubMarket Team and taking Vaccaro & Sons to the next level of success.”

By joining GrubMarket, Vaccaro & Sons can leverage the former’s WholesaleWare software suite, which is a Software-as-a-Service platform that offers financial management, online ordering and sales, inventory management, and CRM tools.

Mike Xu – CEO of GrubMarket said: “Vaccaro & Sons is known in the St. Louis area for its commitment to quality and exceptional service. The team is a true value-added partner who brings creative solutions to customers and producers.

“This acquisition puts GrubMarket on a path to further expand to the vital food supply chain corridor of the Midwest.
