Strong Foundations

Our History

Our HistoryWhen Thoms Proestler Company's (TPC's) founding fathers were delivering their wares to grocery stores at the turn of the 20th century, little did they know that their business would still be thriving at the turn of the next century. Today we serve thousands of customers from large suburban restaurants to "mom and pop" cafes, healthcare institutions to school cafeterias.

With 125 years of experience, we have a reputation that precedes itself and a solid foundation that was built on supplying you with the absolute best. Only the finest products leave our doors. Our long list of products includes a variety of produce ranging from exotic fruits to fresh-picked vegetables; fresh seafood and choice cuts of meat; delicious baked goods, dairy products and a host of beverages. We even have the tableware to serve it all. To continue to provide you with the outstanding products and service you deserve, TPC joined forces with another family-founded company - Performance Food Group, one of the nation's largest foodservice distributors. Together, as Performance Foodservice-Thoms Proestler, we are building a new tradition of excellence in foodservice distribution. We hope our products will grace your tables for many years to come.
