Honor Foods Acquires Sunny Morning Foods

Honor Foods, the Burris Logistics foodservice redistribution company, has agreed to purchase Sunny Morning Foods, a foodservice redistributor with dairy expertise located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The transaction closed on June 23, 2023. 

We would like to welcome Sunny Morning to Honor Foods. We are very excited to have them on our Team, where their collective dairy expertise and reputation are a perfect fit for our redistribution business and our ONEBURRIS Workplace. 

Sunny Morning Foods strengthens our portfolio and broadens our position as a preferred foodservice redistributor in the Mid-Atlantic, New England, and now Southeast regions. The addition of Sunny Morning Foods is our third dairy redistributor acquisition since Burris acquired Honor in 2007. This, coupled with brand presence and protein expertise from RW Zant in Los Angeles, CA puts Honor Foods on the path of national redistribution capability. 

“This acquisition is another step towards fulfilling our longstanding strategy —  to build upon our dairy expertise as a way to provide competitive differentiation within the foodservice redistribution channel while satisfying customers’ product needs,” said Walt Tullis, President of Honor Foods. “Sunny Morning Foods has an extensive offering of dairy products, including butter, cheese, and creams, under their own proprietary brands in addition to many highly regarded national brands. Further, Sunny Morning has established a reputation for superior customer service throughout the Florida marketplace, and we are excited to introduce the broader Honor Foods portfolio to their customers.”

“We are proud to welcome Sunny Morning Foods into the Burris Logistics family. As Honor Foods expands into the Southeast, it is important that we acquire a brand with similar quality, customer service, and distribution capability as Honor Foods has in the Mid-Atlantic. Beginning in 1988, Dale Volkert and Ken Carlson have built and operated a wonderful family business.  This makes Sunny Morning a tremendous cultural fit, and we look forward to carrying on the Sunny Morning heritage for many years to come.” said Donnie Burris, CEO and President of Burris Logistics.
