CulinArt Group expands footprint with acquisitions in the Northeast, Southwest

PLAINVIEW, NY.—CulinArt Group has fortified its ability to grow and increase service to clients, having acquired Host America (based in North Haven, CT), and Sacco Dining Services (headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ) earlier this year. CulinArt Group now manages some 250-plus operations at client locations in 18 states.

The Host America deal added 14 corporate dining locations to CulinArt Group’s portfolio, most of which are located in Connecticut (and with others in Maryland and Texas). With Sacco, CulinArt Group added 10 accounts in California, Arizona and Utah, in market segments that include education, corporate dining, long-term zoloft 50 mg street price.

Both acquisitions fortify CulinArt Group’s presence in these regions, while positioning each operating division for growth. Since acquiring Host, for example, CulinArt Group opened a multi-tenant account in Westchester County, NY that is operated by this division, while Sacco’s local infrastructure was instrumental in helping CulinArt Group launch a new partnership with a multi-site technology firm.

These acquisitions reflect CulinArt Group’s strategy of selecting partners who are experts in their regions and market niches. “We have found this growth strategy more effective than trying to enter a market, one account at a time,” says Joseph H. Pacifico, chairman and CEO of CulinArt Group. “In addition, it provides these partners with the support and infrastructure they need so they can concentrate on what they do best – provide excellent service to clients and a dynamic dining experience to their customers.”

CulinArt Group’s track record in this regard is sound. Within the past few years, CulinArt Group acquired Cornucopia Dining Services of Exton, PA, and Williamson Hospitality of Blue Bell, PA, and relocated both to a new regional headquarters in Malvern, PA. “In each case, the account portfolios of these organizations has doubled and tripled, respectively, in a very short time,” Pacifico adds. “Our CulinArt West Division, created with the acquisition of P&A Food Systems, showed similar results. Revenue has tripled and the division now operates some 50 locations.”

The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team.
