A Family Tradition of
Customer Driven Success
Sofo Foods was started in the early
1940's when Antonio Sofo began to service the growing
Italian community of Toledo. Since Italian foods were not
available in the Toledo area he would travel to Detroit to
purchase cheese, salamis, pasta and bread. He would deliver
these products to his customers from the back of a single
truck. Antonio's son Joe joined his father's business after
returning from the Service. Joe soon realized the company's
potential for growth. His vision and dedication helped make
the company what it is today.
Today we're in our third generation of family ownership and
Tony, Mike and Joe Jr. carry on the traditions of the past
60 years. Sofo Foods has grown to be the largest ethnic food
distributor in the Midwest. We have four distribution
centers, our corporate office in Toledo, Ohio, New
Albany, Indiana, Suwanee, Georgia, and Houston, Texas. Sofo Foods now has a
fleet of trucks that deliver to restaurants and pizzerias in
16 states and we have over 350 dedicated employees.
A lot has changed over the years, but commitment to quality
products and the highest levels of customer service have
never wavered. We strive to be the very best!
