NEW YORK, July 25, 2023 – One Rock Capital Partners, LLC (“One Rock” or the “Firm”), a value-oriented, operationally focused private equity firm, today announced the sale of its portfolio company Orion Food Systems Holdings, LLC and its related subsidiaries (collectively, “OLM” or the “Company”) to an affiliate of Performance Food Group, Inc.

Founded in 1983, OLM is a leading manufacturer and distributor of pizza, sandwiches, breakfast and snack solutions primarily for foodservice applications in convenience stores and similar out-of-home venues in the U.S. and abroad.
