McLane Company Inc, a supply chain services company providing grocery and foodservice supply chain solutions nationwide, has been awarded services for 29 Xtra Mart convenience store (c-store) locations recently acquired by Binghamton NY-based Mirabito Holdings Inc.
As part of the multi-year agreement, McLane will begin servicing the 29 Xtra Mart locations in central New York and northeast Pennsylvania starting January 1, 2017. With the addition of the 29 locations, which will be rebranded as Mirabito c-stores, McLane now handles all of Mirabito’s c-store locations in the eastern region, bringing the total to more than 100 stores.
“Mirabito has had a long standing relationship with McLane Company and have trusted the support of the company’s senior leadership team for over 20 years,” said Joe Mirabito, president and chief executive officer. “Their commitment to our future is invaluable, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
A customer of McLane since 1997, Mirabito termed the supply chain’s strategic leadership, operating excellence and tech solution offerings as contributors to its growing footprint in the eastern region over the years. Specifically, through its participation in McLane’s Center for Category Innovation and inclusion of the supply chain’s foodservice solution, McLane Kitchen, Mirabito plans to roll out newly remodeled stores and introduce specialty, fresh and frozen items and equipment starting in 2017.
“Mirabito is a well-respected and a long-time customer of McLane, so it’s an honor they have chosen us to provide services for the acquired Xtra Mart business,” said Tony Frankenberger, president of McLane. “Our portfolio of services will enable Mirabito to provide a wider variety of foodservice offerings and upgraded footprint experience to its rapidly growing customer base.”
McLane operates 80 distribution centers across the United States and one of the nation’s largest private fleets. The company buys, sells and delivers more than 50,000 different consumer products to nearly 90,000 US locations. A wholly owned unit of Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK), McLane has more than 20,000 employees.
