What Chefs Want (WCW), headquartered in Louisville, KY, is thrilled to announce its acquisition of the rapidly rising Food Hub ATL. This acquisition, rooted in mutual respect and shared values, aims to shape the future of culinary distribution in Atlanta with a blend of tradition and innovation. 

Since its foundation in 1996, WCW, under the dedicated stewardship of owners, Ron and Mollie Turnier, has been a beacon of change and innovation in the food distribution sector. This acquisition isn’t just a testament to WCW’s growth vision but also an acknowledgment of the remarkable success story of Food Hub ATL. 

“We’re immensely proud to welcome Food Hub ATL into our family,” said Ron Turnier, owner and founder of WCW. “Their rapid ascent in the industry, coupled with a dedication to excellence, complements our ethos. Their dynamic approach will integrate seamlessly with our team and culture.” 

Despite its relatively recent inception in 2020, Food Hub ATL has carved an impressive niche, becoming the go-to source for chefs in Atlanta, Augusta, and Auburn. Their commitment to delivering fresh local meats, produce, and diverse other goods has earned them accolades and respect in the culinary community. 

“We’re thrilled to become part of the What Chefs Want family, where our shared mission, values, and commitment to serving chefs align seamlessly,” said Dan Sowers, founder of Food Hub ATL. “This partnership will enable us to provide an even more comprehensive service offering to our valued customers, leveraging the powerful synergies between our two organizations.” 

With this acquisition, both companies are set for a culinary renaissance. WCW is poised to introduce its premium offerings, including cut steaks, burger patties, and fresh fish, to Food Hub ATL’s clientele. In return, Food Hub ATL’s distinct product portfolio will augment WCW’s extensive array, promising chefs and restaurateurs an even broader spectrum of choices. 

With this acquisition and a future state-of-the-art hub in Atlanta, What Chefs Want plans to bring more than 25 jobs to the Atlanta area in positions including truck drivers (both CDL required and non-CDL positions), receiving, and warehouse workers.
