Quaker Valley Foods, Inc

Quaker Valley Foods was founded in 1975 by brothers – in – law, Norman Fleekop and Gary Hudis. Both had extensive experience in the food business at the time. Norman had been an original owner of Kansas Beef Industries (KBI) and Gary had worked there as the plant manager. Originally named Gary’s Wholesale Meats, the company began with 10 customers, all located in North and West Philadelphia. In 1980 Norman’s son Ken joined the company and in 1984 Gary’s son Wayne did the same. Years of sustained annual growth and business relocation followed. By 1995, in their 4th location at 100 Packer Avenue, the company acquired the assets of KBI and moved into their facility at 3101 South 3rd Street in Philadelphia. Following Norman’s retirement in 2000 and the sudden death of Gary in 2002, it was time for the two sons to take the reins and lead the company forward. In 2005 the last relocation, to the former RFDI facility on Red Lion Road in Northeast Philadelphia took place. It is there that QVF resides today, on 15 acres, with close to 250,000 square feet of dry, refrigerated and frozen warehouse space.


Quaker Valley Foods is a full-line food distributor, handling over 1500 fresh and frozen perishable and non-perishable items, with purchasing and delivery expertise focusing on Beef, Pork, Poultry, Deli and Provisions, Imported Mutton, Goats and Lamb and frozen Seafood.
