Founded by Albert F. Wendling in 1913, A. F. Wendling’s Food Service, Inc. is West Virginia’s largest independent family owned and operated food service company.

Wendling’s has experienced tremendous growth in the past decade, expanding from 20 employees and $5 million in sales in 1998 to more than 70 employees and $25 million in sales in 2008.

Believing that employees are the key to success, the company began a step-by-step approach to the task of designing, organizing and conducting customized training. A comprehensive safety program resulted in a significant reduction in lost work days due to injury in the warehouse and transportation areas. Development and training for a new Web site prototype have made it easier for customers to access products and services. Still in the early phases, redesign and re-engineering of the warehouse layout and processes have resulted in improved inventory management and increased operational efficiencies.

The company plans continued growth through initiatives that leverage its ability to respond quickly and effectively to customers while providing a personalized level of service that has been the hallmark of Wendling’s for 100 years.
