About us

KEY FOODServices Co. has serviced food service operators in the Chicago Metro area, Milwaukee, and the Northwest panhandle of Indiana for the past 14 years. We are a broad line food distributor with product lines as varied and eclectic as dish washing machines to evaporate milk, as singularly unique as alligator meat and canned rambutan, as delectable and exquisite as Maine Lobster and caviar to Stracciatella Gelato. There is something in our inventory to accommodate the needs of almost any type and style of food service establishment. And by George, if we don’t carry it, we will go the distance to procure whatever it is you need, if that’s what it takes.

Our clientele is as diverse as our inventory. We service institutions such as hospitals and universities, casinos, grocery stores, bars and taverns; from ethnic French Vietnamese fusion restaurants to the ubiquitous coffee cafes, from multi-unit chains to fine dining and hospitality venues and a little bit of everything else in between.

BUT, enough about us – it has never been about us – it has always been about you, and how we can assist and help you make more money, find the exact products you need, and provide you the services you require to run your business as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

We know we can help, we can save you time, save you money, and save you from the extra stress of having to run the back end of the house. Rest assured we will never let you down and we will always have your back as we cheer and support your “full charge” ahead into the competitive world of culinary delights…all we are asking for is the same thing everyone else is after, including yourself – opportunity. The opportunity to show you what we can do and how we can help. We stand at the ready for your call and for that singular opportunity.
