wholesale pizza supplies in Reno, Nevada??
« on: October 18, 2014, 10:55:40 AM »
We are preparing for a move to Reno to open a small NY style pizzeria that will continue my work with employing people with disabilities.  I have done some google searches and can't find any wholesale delivery companies in Reno that could supply me with grande cheese, GM bromated flour, 7/11 tomatoes, and other common pizzeria supplies. I grew up in the NYC/NJ pizza scene and want to make pizzas like I grew up learning. I emailed General Mills to see if Full Strength and All Trumps are available in NV bromated.  Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks.  Walter

Thanks Dave :)  I have used power flour in CA and am sure that grande and 7/11's are available in Reno but my google searches came up with cash and carry.  I used them in CA and they are very limited with their pizza supplies in regards to what I use. I know bromate is illegal in CA flours and I wonder if it is worth GM's time to deal with supplying it NV?  Walter

Walter .. BiRite Foodservice Distributors delivers to Reno out of Brisbane, CA.  (just south of S.F.) .. They have both Grande Cheeses and 7/11 Tomatoes.  Since most of the distributors that serve Reno are based in CA bromated flour might be difficult to find.


below is the website and 7/11 info they have to many Grande offerings to c&p

Good luck on your venture.  My sister lives in Reno and we visit often I can't wait for you to open and meet you.

thanks guys!  I did talk to the GM rep and no bromated in NV due to the CA issue.  I also have connected with Saladino's distributors. They carry 7/11's and grande.  Thanks for that lead. It gives me 2 vendors to bounce off of plus Sysco.  I look forward to serving you a slice someday!  Walter

I cannot get Grande through Sysco here, I get it through FSA.

Do you live in Reno?  Sysco doesn't carry grande anywhere but does carry GM flours and 7/11's.   I get grande through GFS here in OH.   Thanks.  Walter
