Our clients range from restaurant and store owners to healthcare and organizational facilities.

The FPS associates are exceptional, providing our customers and suppliers with the attention and detail that they deserve. We are committed to getting you the food service products that you want, when you want them, and at the right price.

Here at FPS, we think beyond business. We strive to become stewards in the neighborhoods that we serve, and we are committed to promoting a strong sense of morals and ethics with every decision that we make.

Both the distribution center and retail Cash & Carry Store operate out of our warehouse in Alsip, IL.

Bruce Goldberg and his father, Martin Goldberg, founded Food & Paper Supply Company, opening the first location at 50 E 71st Street on the South Side of Chicago.


Bruce Goldberg’s lifelong best friend, Danny Friedman, purchases 50% of the company. This establishes the Executive Foundation that still exists today.


The location on 71st Street tragically burns down. Despite losing all of their inventory and their distribution center in the blaze, FPS doesn’t miss a day of business, nor miss a single delivery.


Food and Paper Supply Co. finds a new home at 7247 S South Chicago Ave.


Food & Paper Supply Co. acquires Concession Services Inc., moving its distribution center to a 75,000 square foot warehouse in Alsip, IL. Here there are 13 trucks locked & loaded for daily deliveries throughout Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.


After over 30 years serving the neighborhood, Food & Paper Supply Co. permanently closes its doors on S Chicago Ave. They are now consolidated in the Alsip, IL warehouse, which is also the new home of the Cash & Carry Store. Open for business!
