Shamrock Foods expands Montana presence with Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse opening in Billings
Store offers chef-preferred shopping experience for foodservice operators and general public
Billings, MT. (May 16, 2022)— Shamrock Foods, the largest family-owned independent foodservice distributor in the West, is introducing its Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse retail store to Billings, MT. Located at 1323 Main St., the 18,000-square-foot store’s grand opening takes place May 25, 2022.
Of the 11 Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse stores operating across the Western U.S. this will be the first Montana store and is the perfect extension of Shamrock Foods foodservice distribution business, which already serves Billings-area Shamrock Foods customers between Laurel and Cline.
Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse provides a fresh, friendly and convenient shopping experience for restaurant operators, home shoppers, food trucks, caterers, small businesses, non-profits, and more. Featuring approximately 4,000 products, the store offers everything from high-quality meats and seafood to a variety of fresh produce and premium dairy, plus hundreds of items are Montana grown or manufactured. In addition, it’s stocked with disposables, cleaning supplies, kitchen equipment and appliances.
“Our Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse stores are the shopping trifecta for foodservice customers and the general public because we offer the highest-quality chef-approved products, a clean and convenient shopping experience and unmatched service,” said Ann Ocaña, chief marketing officer for Shamrock Foods Company.
The store allows restaurant operators to replenish their kitchens with the same brands they know and love between scheduled Shamrock Foods deliveries. And, with no membership required, the store is also open to the public, providing convenient access to a full range of quality foodservice and wholesale grocery products at great prices for everyone.
“As both the foodservice and culinary industry thrive throughout the region, we want to be the area’s go-to resource for that movement,” said Ocaña. “And, with Shamrock Foods Company celebrating our 100th year as a family-held business this year, we’ve proven to have the expertise, drive and commitment to support our foodservice industry partners now and into the future.”
Grand opening activities include vendor demonstrations, exclusive giveaways for the first 100 customers with special savings and product sampling throughout grand opening week. The opening also serves as the kick-off to a month-long in-store food drive to benefit Billings Food Bank, with Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse donating an initial $2,000 to jumpstart the drive.
“This year may mark a century in business, but Shamrock Foods Company’s story is just beginning and we’re thrilled that our Billings store is now part of that narrative,” said Ocaña.
