CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--US Foods, a Fortune 500 company and one of America’s leading foodservice distributors and suppliers for a range of customers nationwide, including restaurants, hospitals, hotels and universities – has signed a lease renewal of 275,000 square feet (sf) with options to expand at Riverway in Rosemont, Ill.
