Cheney Brothers Annual 2012 Buying Show Reports Record Attendance
Cheney Brothers Incorporated is Florida’s Leading and Largest Independent Food Distributor…and Beverages Too!
Thousands of food service professionals were invited to “Escape to the Tropics” for Cheney Brothers 22nd Annual Buying Show held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida as record crowds were treated to a Monday June 18th party at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery & Science and on Tuesday February 19th the Broward County Convention Center was the location for the 2012 CBI Buying Show that featured over 350 vendors.
Founded in 1925, Cheney Brothers has grown from a distributor of milk and eggs into one of the largest Food Service Distributors in the South. Led by Chairman and CEO Byron Russell, Cheney Brothers are independent and family owned and operated. Cheney Brothers is dedicated and passionate to individual customer needs and can offer unmatched service from their growing and expanding vendor, staff and client base.
” It’s a family owned business and Cheney Brothers can get you what you need”, said Brett Baston, a Cheney Brothers District Manager in Collier County. “As a customer you couldn’t ask for anything more…we have 18,000 items at our warehouse in Riviera Beach and another 15-16,000 at our facility in Ocala,” added Baston.
Cheney Brother’s is growing and has broke ground on a new facility to be built in Port Charlotte on Florida’s West Coast. “We are absolutely thrilled to be putting a new facility in Port Charlotte that should be operational in a year a half to two years and we’ll cover the entire west coast of Florida” said Baston, who sees the Cheney growth on Florida’s West Coast as a key opportunity for retailers from Marco Island to north of Tampa to stay competitive.
Besides the chef’s competitions and bonus pricing available at the Cheney Show, retailers and industry pros were treated to a multitude of new items from the latest equipment to representation of the biggest brand names as well as ’boutique’ and gourmet food and beverage items.
