All American Foods was established in April of 1988 under the name All American Meats & Seafood, Inc.


Leon Panteleos purchased the company Medeiros Meats which handled a variety of meat and deli items. At the time of purchase the company was operating out of a residential garage with a 10' x 10' refrigerator and a 6' x 6' freezer with annual sales of about $240,000.


In April of 1989 we moved to a 1,000 sq. ft facility with a 12' x 8' walk-in freezer and a 18' x 8' walk-in refrigerator.

 

In February of 1993 we made our second move to a 2,500 sq. ft facility with a 20' x 40' walk-in freezer and a 20' x 40' refrigerator, both single level. As a result of our expansion sales surpassed  $5 million. In March of 1996 we doubled refrigerator and freezer capacities to a total of 4,500 sq. ft.

 

In December of 1999 we moved to our current location at One All American Way in North Kingstown, RI. A new state-of-the-art 50,000 sq. foot multi-temp facility was constructed with a 60' x 300' refrigerated dock and the ability to offload rail. In 2002 we changed our name to All American Foods, Inc. and expanded our facility to nearly double the size. In April of 2006 we continued expansion by doubling freezer capacity.

 

In 2012 we added dual zone trucks and trailers to our fleet to ensure products are kept at proper temperatures during delivery.

 

We have experienced tremendous growth with a base of over 800 customers and more than 10,000 SKUs since our move in 1999. Our commitment to customer service and success will continue to pave the way for future growth.
