SGC Foodservice has changed much more than its name over its 150 years in business. Established in 1865 as the Springfield Grocer Company, the Springfield-based business initially sold things like bullets, dry goods and barbed wire to early settlers in southwest Missouri.

Today, SGC serves restaurants, hospitals, schools and nursing homes in eight states. It distributes about 20,000 products to more than 3,500 restaurant and food service customers, and it also helps with staff training, menu analysis and more.

As SGC celebrates its 150th year in business, it holds the distinction of being Springfield’s oldest surviving continuously operating business, and it’s one of the oldest continuously operating businesses in the state.
