“We are delighted to receive this prestigious recognition and would like to thank our customers, employees and vendor partners for making this possible,” says Dan Lafrance, President of Flanagan Foodservice. “Flanagan’s goes to great efforts to provide the ‘difference you deserve’ and it is wonderful to know that this is evident and valued by the industry.
