Since 1998 we have been delivering our products to businesses across Ontario. In 2011 we pened the first large scale Cash & Carry in Mississauga, with state-of-the-art commercial coolers and freezers to supply restaurants with the best frozen and fresh ingredients.
In 2014 we opened the second A1 Cash & Carry in Etobicoke, Ontario an express location with 20,000 square feet.
In 2016 we moved the Mississauga location 2 buildings south, to a new gleaming 100,000 square feet, which was expanded 2 years later to 150,000 square feet to accommodate our growth, and to add the restaurant equipment, small wares, and protein categories.
In 2017 we opened the third A1 Cash & Carry location in London Ontario, to a severely underserved market. In 2020 A1 Cash and Carry implemented SAP with a full warehouse management system, to help us better manage our inventory and replenishment.
In the beginning of 2021 A1 Cash and Carry Launched a new line of business – our E-commerce website, expended delivery to new regions.
Carrying on our journey onwards and upwards, on July 1st, 2021 A1 Cash and Carry opened its fourth location at North York with 65,000 square feet of cash and carry and 7,500+ items in stock.
I look forward to future growth by adding locations, perfecting the E-Commerce store (Click & Collect, Bulk delivery, 3rd Party Delivery) in 2021, and growing within our current customer base.
