From the corner diner where families enjoy breakfast on Sunday morning, to the luxurious steakhouses where the world’s business is conducted, US Foods products help shape the communities where people live and work. US Food’s success is a tribute to five generations of employees. Several of the entities that make up US Foods were founded in the 19th century. Monarch Foods, for example, is linked to a Dubuque, Iowa company that sold provisions for wagon trains heading west in the 1850s. John Sexton and Company began as a tea and coffee merchant in Chicago in 1883. US Foods is now one of America’s leading foodservice distributors to restaurants, healthcare and hospitality facilities, government operations and educational institutions. They offer more than 350,000 national brand products and their own private label items ranging from meats to produce to frozen foods. US Foods is based in Rosemont, Ill., and proudly employs about 25,000 associates in more than 60 locations.
US Foods is owned by funds managed by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Inc. and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. In 2010 they contacted GOES to evaluate one of their buildings. Subsequently, GOES installed it’s units resulting in monthly savings on US Food’s energy bills. Prior to installation, during the sizing process, GOES certied energy auditors found the compressors in US Foods facility to have soft starts on them. There are four dierent large compressors that range from 300hp – 500hp. Each GOES Energy Management System had to be custom designed with a time delay system to pull it in the system after the compressor was running under full load. This type of customiztion is crucial in order for our system to have optimal results. All of the installations where a success and GOES is moving along to other facilities in there network.
