Our History

Our Story

Cold Front was founded in June of 2000 and began operations in August of that year providing the Colorado Front Range with direct store delivery of premier nationally branded frozen food products.  Our Corporate Office is located in Denver, Colorado and supports sales, warehousing and administration for the service and delivery of products throughout a ten-state marketing area.  

Cold Front Distribution operates four main divisions: the Mountain Division based in Denver, Colorado; the Southwest Division in Albuquerque, New Mexico; our Midwest Division in Madison, Wisconsin and our Central Division in Oklahoma.  Our Southwest Division was established through the acquisition of Heller Distributing of Albuquerque, New Mexico in October of 2004 and our Midwest Division was added from assuming the Schoep’s Distribution Division of Madison, Wisconsin in February of 2016.

Utilizing a Direct Store Delivery (DSD) model, Cold Front purchases premium frozen food items from the top national manufacturers in the industry.  These products are then delivered directly off our fleet of trucks to grocery stores, convenience stores and food service accounts throughout our marketing areas. Our primary goal is ultimate customer satisfaction from the point of delivery through the final purchase and consumption experience of the retail consumer.
