In 1949, Edward F. DiPasquale founded the E.F. DiPasquale Company. E.F. DiPasquale Company has been owned and operated by the DiPasquale family and successfully served the Food Service, C-Store and Retail industries in Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio for over 50 years.
In 2005, E.F. DiPasquale Company and Allegheny Valley Foodservice merged to become EFD Associates. Through hard work, outstanding service, and investing back into the business, we have continued to grow and service our customers and manufacturers. We are large enough to develop relationships in an expanded market, yet small enough to deliver value and profits as well as instill perspective and empathy.
We have grown consistently and substantially since 1949 proving that EFD has provided a good, dedicated sales agency and outstanding customer service to its various constituents within the food industry. We understand the fiduciary responsibility we have to our manufacturers as well as our employees to continue to evolve during the ever changing market. To this end, we will continue to maintain our experienced sales staff and offices so we can insure the needs of our customers, distributors, and manufacturers are achieved.
“To be the most well-versed and capable sales agency in the marketplace, providing excellent coverage, marketing solutions and first-hand product knowledge of price, availability and competitive options.”
