August 27, 2018

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A longtime Sioux City food distribution facility will be closing next week, affecting the jobs of 30 people.

Braunger Foods is shutting down the facility Sept. 7. The company is a wholesale distributor of meat and other food products to restaurants and has operated in Sioux City for nearly 130 years. Rosemont, Illinois-based US Foods bought Braunger Foods last summer.

US Foods spokeswoman Sara Matheu says 14 employees will be leaving the company or applying for new roles at the company’s Sioux Falls, South Dakota, facility, while 16 others will be added to the Sioux Falls staff.
