Graves Foods has everything a restaurant needs to keep it above the competition. Our family understands how difficult running a restaurant can be, so we have established ourselves as the dependable source of foodservice products and services for restaurants in the Midwest. We plan food costs and menu development. We have the unique ability to customize your center of the plate offering because we cut and process our own meat products.

We are a full-line wholesale food distributor with more than 4,000 quality products for you to choose from. Your menu and products will stay fresh and exciting as we keep you up-to-date with new products.
