(Oct. 3) RICHMOND, Va. — Performance Food Group has announced that its Customized Foodservice Division has reached an agreement with Minneapolis-based Carlson Restaurants Worldwide Inc. to serve 265 additional T.G.I. Friday’s restaurants.

The deal, Performance Food Group officials say, would add about $200 million in additional sales to the marketer and distributor of more than 51,000 national and private-label food items and products. It also would expand service to nearly 90% of the T.G.I. Friday’s system.

To supply the additional eateries and other Customized customers, Performance has signed a contract to lease two distribution centers — one in Fort Mill, S.C., the other in Westampton, N.J. — currently operated by Marriott Distribution Services Inc., Washington, D.C.

Performance expects to begin shipping at the Fort Mill location by mid-October and at the Westampton center by November, enabling it to provide additional capacity at its distribution facilities in Lebanon, Tenn.; Gainesville, Fla.; and Elkton, Md. The company also plans to expand its Elkton distribution center from 135,000 square feet to 306,000 square feet.

Carlson Restaurants Worldwide operates, franchises and licenses more than 700 restaurants in 56 countries, including T.G.I. Friday’s, Friday’s Front Row Sports Grill and Friday’s American Bar.
