About Us

Humble Beginnings  

Nearly 49 years ago in 1970, Christ Panos began supplying sit-down and fast-casual restaurants in Chicago along a single delivery route using a small industrial freezer and refrigerator. Even then, our company’s primary focus was to maintain positive connections with our greatest asset – our customers. Over the years, that focus and desire to better understand our customers’ needs has allowed us to grow and adapt to better serve our market.

Key to Success

Today, we supply establishments in Chicago, Wisconsin and Indiana with millions of pounds of nationally branded prepared food items. Our prices are competitive with larger distributors, but our close customer relationships and personal touch are what set us apart.

Vision for Growth

Now, as we look toward the future, our customers’ needs remain our priority. That’s why, when you purchase from Christ Panos Foods, you can be assured of a great selection of products at excellent prices, backed by the best customer service in the tri-state area.

"Now we have adequate space with room to grow"
