Bellissimo Foods is a group of specialty food distributors serving North America, including Puerto Rico, Alaska, and Mexico. Bellissimo was founded in 1995 when nine Italian foodservice distributors partnered together to service the growing needs of their customers. Today, Bellissimo Foods has 40+ distribution centers and services more than 26,000 independent restaurants weekly, about 40% of the independent pizza and Italian restaurants in the country. Bellissimo Distributors generate $1.6 billion total revenue and are the largest specialty distributors of pizza, Italian and Mediterranean products in the USA.
Dot Foods is the nation's largest food redistributor. They purchase full truckloads from 600 manufacturers and consolidate their products in eight distribution centers across the country. Then they resell these products in less-than-truckload (LTL) quantities to distributors on a weekly basis. There is normally no extra cost to the distributor when buying from Dot, and manufacturers compensate us to handle distribution of their costly LTL orders. It's a win-win for everybody along the food supply chain.
