Family Business Tour – Flanagan Foodservice
September 22 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Family Business Tours Are Back!
We are delighted to be able to meet in person again and have already had one of our incredible Ambassador Families offer to open their doors and host a Family Business Tour! Family business tours have always been a hit with the Family Enterprise Canada community as they provide an opportunity to bring the community together in a casual and fun environment to learn more about a local family enterprise. Flanagan Family of Flanagan Foodservice have offered to host the community at their Flanagan Foodservice Whitby Facility – join us for a tour of this interesting location and learn how the Flanagan’s have successfully moved to G-3 of their enterprising family!
Flanagan Foodservice, a third generation, family-owned business, was founded in 1977 by Joe Flanagan. They are the third-largest food distributor in the country. Today, the company is owned by Joe's four sons, CEO Dan Flanagan and his brothers Rick, Murray and Jeff. They employ 520 people in 4 branches across Ontario and have a fleet that consists of over 80 vehicles delivering foodservice products across Ontario and Southwestern Quebec. Harnessing the unique attributes of a family run company, the owners have been able to maintain a service level that represents the warmth and tradition that Canadians are famous for.
The future of Flanagan’s continues to be that of a family-owned, independent company that will exhibit the same distinct family values that have defined its identity for 40 years. Flanagan is looking to the future with great excitement. The company just completed the largest expansion to date with an 180,000 square foot branch in Whitby, Ontario.
