I switched to McLane because of its great pricing, customer service, product assortment, and strong Colorado presence. My independent sales rep, Malik, is always available when I need him. He keeps me updated on what’s new, and what products I should carry in my stores. I’ve grown my foodservice program and increased sales because of their great assortment of foodservice items. I really value working with McLane and know I will always be treated well. Citaula Brothers, Inc.

“Before McLane, we were traveling to local warehouses to purchase and deliver inventory ourselves–even the bananas. We tried other distributors, but nothing impressed us. When we were introduced to McLane, we did some research and saw we had the opportunity to work with the biggest and best distributor in the country. McLane’s technology, pricing, assorted inventory, and amazing service make McLane stand out from competitors. McLane is a part of who we are and the image we reflect on our customers.” Caraf Oil
