About Us


John Gross & Company is a privately owned foodservice distributor located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

Founded in 1950 as a Maxwell House Coffee Distributor, the company gained a following by providing unparalleled service to its customers. Today, the company has grown into a full line food distributor offering fresh meats, seafood, produce, coffee, dry goods, beverages, refrigerated and frozen items, and cleansing chemicals to Pennsylvania businesses. We are proud to be a part of PA Preferred, sourcing great PA products from great PA counties.

While our portfolio has transformed greatly over the years, our commitment to servicing our customers has not. It is only through the success of our customers that we too can hope to achieve ours.
