HISTORY
Ritchie Marketing came about with the merger of two brokerages: Great Lakes Meat & Deli and Ritchie & Associates. Great Lakes Meat & Deli was an eleven year-old food brokerage while Ritchie & Associates was a twenty-three year-old disposables brokerage. On January 1, 2003, the ownership merged the two organizations together to provide both the vendor and distributor community a diversified and aggressive sales organization to sell their product lines to the marketplace.

On January 1, 2006 RMI acquired Kenat & Associates of Zeeland, MI. Kenat & Associates primarily focused on the school, college and chain account areas of the food service segment.

On September 1, 2009 RMI acquired H Ross & Associates of Detroit, MI. H. Ross spent time working with the second and third tier distribution in the Detroit and Grand Rapids markets.

On March 1, 2010 RMI acquired The Halling Co of Detroit, MI. The Halling Company specialized in the seafood industry and enhanced our already strong relationships with distributors throughout the Detroit market.

As of September 2012, we have twenty seven sales professionals working within our organization. While our main office is located in Grand Rapids, MI, we also have satellite office locations in Wixom, MI (Detroit) and Indianapolis, IN as well as field personnel in Toledo OH, Cleveland, OH, Columbus, OH, Cincinnati, OH, South Bend, IN, Chicago, IL and Milwaukee, WI. In addition to our sales team, we also have four phenomenal inside sales and customer service personnel to assist the sales force.
