Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op, LLC (UFPC) Completes Sale of Equipment Restoration Subsidiary

Louisville, Ky. — Jan. 15, 2005 — 

Accuserv Restaurant Equipment, LLC.As part of UFPC’s strategy to focus on our core mission of providing supply chain management services to members, we have sold the operating assets of our Pensacola, Fla.-based UFPC Equipment Restoration, Inc. subsidiary to Accuserv Restaurant Equipment, LLC. Accuserv will continue to offer restored equipment to UFPC members consistent with the current strategy. No layoffs of its seven-member crew are planned, and the company and its existing jobs will remain in Pensacola.

Accuserv will continue to repair and restore used equipment to like-new condition and offer it to store owners and operators at a significant discount to new equipment prices. Accuserv also will commit additional resources, including hiring new staff to build inventory and expand sales to members.

UFPC has a strong, long-term relationship with Accuserv in the procurement and distribution of lighting and electrical component supplies to members. We are looking forward to expanding our relationship with Accuserv. We expect the restored equipment business segment to grow and continue to provide a strong value alternative for UFPC’s members as Accuserv commits significant resources to building the restoration. business.

The transition date for the business was Jan. 1, 2005. The contact information for sales and equipment inquiries is the same: Matt Felling at (800) 326-9096 or matt_felling@ufpc.com
