Foodservice solutions provider Pro Food Systems (PFSbrands) will expand into Missouri with its acquisition of the Show Me Oil Company, which owns and operates one convenience store and eight grocery stores under the Moser’s Food banner.

PFSbrands encompasses more than 2,000 branded foodservice locations in 39 states, operating mostly in convenience and grocery stores. Its brands include Champs Chicken, BluTaco and Hangar 54 Pizza. According to company press release, the move is a significant expansion for PFSbrands, “underlining its commitment to growth and excellence in the retail food sector.”

“Today marks a momentous occasion for PFSbrands as we begin making plans to welcome the entire Moser's team into our thriving environment. Now operating nine Champs Chicken locations, Roger [Moser, founder and president of Moser’s Foods,] has been a customer, friend, family member and mentor of mine for over 30 years,” said Shawn Burcham, founder and CEO of PFSbrands. “This acquisition is more than a business transaction; it's a union of two companies that share a deep commitment to quality, values and community involvement.”

“Our journey with Moser's represents a new chapter in our story, one where we will continue to innovate and grow while staying true to the core values that have driven our mutual success,” Burcham added. “We're looking forward to bringing our combined strengths to the Mid-Missouri communities and beyond as we continue to redefine excellence in the retail food sector.”

Moser said, “I am pleased to be selling our business to a local company that will allow our Moser’s legacy to continue. All of our dedicated employees will be able to become employee-owners at PFSbrands and will have the opportunity to maintain their current positions.”

He continued, “I’ve been doing business with PFSbrands for over 25 years, so I am confident that their leadership team will continue to operate the stores with the same high standards of excellence, commitment to quality and a commitment to the communities we serve.”

Moser’s Foods will remain under local ownership while continuing to operate under its brand. The transaction is expected to be finalized in March 2025.
