AVI Food Systems, Inc.


Ranking #9

Privately held AVI is one of the nation's largest vending and office coffee services providers. Recently, it has been concentrating on building its manual foodservice business. This now generates an estimated $50 million in annual revenues.

The manual foodservice operations are divided between two divisions. One serves institutional clients like colleges and hospitals. The other operates in B&I in conjunction with the much larger vending group.

Onsite dining clients include Kenyon College, Hiram College, Tiffin University, Slippery Rock University, the Cleveland Clinic retail operations and Shaker Heights (OH) Schools.

In the past year, AVI purchased the routes and assets of Kentuckiana Food Service Co. of Louisville, KY.
