We are an independently owned and operated business founded in Atlanta and serving the state of Georgia since 1994.

As a member of PRO*ACT, we are able to provide unparalleled quality and selection to a wide range of clientele from small establishments to large purchasing groups. Our unique position as a privately owned company allows us to deliver personalized attention and care to our customers while leveraging the size and dependability of our large, trusted PRO*ACT network.

Royal Food Service carries a complete line of perishable products that includes fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh dairy, shelled and liquid eggs, fresh squeezed juice, dried fruits and nuts, Kosher pickles, IQF fruits, Napa Valley purées, herbs, fresh olives, value-added fruit and vegetables, and a full line of specialty and seasonal produce. As a member of PRO*ACT, we are able to provide unparalleled quality and selection and this is supported by a quality control staff that guarantees your product from the “field to the plate.”
Our leased fleet of delivery trucks has an average life of less than three years. All of our trucks are fully refrigerated and fitted with curtains that allow us to offer deliveries at the optimum temperatures which are monitored via real-time GPS technology. We pre-cool our trucks prior to loading and stack all products on pallets. This maximizes shelf life and the quality of product while securing the integrity of your delivery. All of our trucks are equipped with Nextel radios that are programmed with technology enabling our management team and customer service department to monitor the sequence of deliveries for each route. This improves communication with our customers if a truck happens to run into a delay due to traffic, or other unforeseen circumstances.
We welcome all of our customers, both current and future, to tour our facility and see the difference as compared to our competition. You won’t find sprayed on insulation at Royal.
