The grand opening of the Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse in the heights begins Wednesday, May 25. The grand opening will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony, food sampling, vendor demonstrations, and a special giveaway to the first 100 customers at the ceremony. There will also be tons of grand opening deals perfect for memorial day weekend.

The opening will have a month-long food drive in the new warehouse benefitting the Billings Food Bank. The Foodservice Warehouse kicks off the food drive by donating 2,000 dollars to the food bank to get things started.

“We have found Shamrock food service warehouse is a trifecta for both foodservice customers and the general public because it offers the highest quality chef-approved and restaurant-sized products, a clean and convenient shopping experience, and unmatched service,” says Ann Ocana, Chief Marketing Officer for the Shamrock Foods Company.

The Shamrock Food Warehouse is an extension of Shamrock Foods, providing restaurant-quality food products for foodservice customers. The company carries over 4,000 high-quality products, including fresh produce, dairy, meat, and seafood. There will also be plenty of Montana-grown foods to choose from, like Golden Valley Eggs, Ranchouse Meats, and Wheats Montana Bread. The company also sells cleaning, kitchen, and appliance supplies. 

Shamrock foods provides products for local businesses, nonprofit organizations, caterers, restaurants, etc. The public is also to purchase Shamrock foods as well. The family-owned and operated company was founded 100 years ago by an Irish immigrant named W.T. McClelland.

The first food service warehouse was built in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has expanded to eleven warehouses across the nation, with Montana now included in that list.  It is one of the top ten food service distributors in the country.

“We just find that Billings has an overall great sense of community and culture that we want to be a part of,” Ocana says. With no membership fee, the Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse is a great way to receive chef-quality foods for families and businesses.
