MONTREAL — Ideal Food Service Corp., has acquired Distribution En Route. This marks Ideal’s second investment within two years, as part of its growth strategy through organic growth and acquisitions that began with the purchase of Les Distributions Giu-Setti Inc., in December of 2020.

Ideal is a privately owned business that was established in 1962. President of Ideal, Petros Louladakis, assumed the role from his late father in 2018, who purchased the company in 1989, after a decade-long career with the company.

“This acquisition strengthens our presence within the QSR industry in Quebec. Ideal is now proudly Montreal’s largest independent broadline food service distributor, bringing us one step closer to our long term objective: becoming Quebec’s largest. We are always open to working with partners who will help us reach our objective that much faster,” said Louladakis.
