AMHERST, N.Y. -- The Wilson Farms Inc. 198-unit chain of convenience stores selected Buffalo, N.Y.-based Tripifoods Inc., as its wholesaler to support the local community, the Buffalo Business Journal reported.
"We selected Tripifoods based on their expertise and experience in supplying convenience stores and our joint commitment to supporting the local economy," Paul Nanula, Wilson Farms president and chief executive officer, told the paper.
As a result of the agreement, Tripifoods is expected to create 60 new jobs, Greg Tripi, president and chief executive officer of the family-run company, told the Business Journal. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, however the switch will happen early next year, the report stated.
"It's a great benefit that happens when two locally owned and operated companies work together," Tripi said.
Wilson Farms operates stores under the Wilson Farms, Wilson Farms Xpress or Sugar Creek banners in upstate New York. Tripifoods distributes products across eight states to retailers in the convenience, drug and mass channels, according to the report.
