If you dine in a restaurant, a country club, or a cafeteria, there’s a good chance some or all of your meal was handled by US Foods along the way. The company distributes some 400,000 products, including branded items and a growing stable of private-label offerings. Its $23 billion in sales last year made it second in market share, behind rival Sysco. The company, whose roots stretch back to the 1850s, is backed by private equity firms KKR and Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, and it may not be private for much longer: It filed for an IPO in February after an agreement to be acquired by Sysco was blocked by a federal judge.
