To our valued customers: 

We will continue to operate as best we can under the circumstances. We know that your operations, large and small, rely on timely delivery of food. However, our utmost concern is for the health of you and your families, our dedicated employees and their families. So please bear with us as we try to make the best of a bad situation.

To limit exposure in the workplace we will be closed on Fridays. 

Shipping transit times are currently not guaranteed by FedEx.  Please be aware that prolonged severe weather is causing transit delays across the US, not just in affected areas.

Winter weather has created hazardous conditions across the US and has caused substantial disruption at the FedEx Hub in Memphis.  FedEx is working hard system wide to clear the back log of packages while keeping employees safe.

Until further notice, we will ship all frozen orders on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Stay healthy ansd atay safe!
