Letter from Our Chairman

To Our Valued Customers and the Dedicated Professionals of the Corrections Industry,

These are words that are tossed around in a rather nonchalant fashion without giving full regard to their meaning and the true impact these characteristics make in forging a company whose customers and employees alike can be proud to be associated with.

A little more than ten years ago it was my privilege to join an exceptional group of investors, all known and regarded for their depth of character and integrity, to shape what once was a regional commissary and food service company into today’s industry leader. This success has further motivated us to remain faithful to our entrepreneurial heritage.

Over the course of this short time distribution centers have been opened in Fort Worth, Texas; La Vergne, Tennessee; and Casa Grande, Arizona. Thus, allowing Mid-States to provide SAME DAY shipping and distribution to all facilities in the United States with next day delivery of commissary products in most cases.

Growth alone cannot and should never be enough if that growth is not tempered with genuine care for our customers and a true service mentality. These attributes coupled with the character to never compromise on issues of integrity make Mid-States a safe harbor in which every customer can find exceptional value and service.

Mid-States provides nationally recognized, name-brand products as well as high quality, private label items. I hope you will take the opportunity and request a sample from the 1000’s of quality items in our product line in which your facility may be interested.

Our newest catalog features full color photographs of the fastest selling items in the commissary industry. Mid-States is pleased to offer over 3,500 items stocked in each of our regional distribution centers and immediately available for your convenience and satisfaction.

Please take a few moments to review our new catalog and explore the many service solutions we can provide your facility and staff. Our dedicated sales and customer service staff is waiting to answer questions and assist you with your commissary needs. Feel free to just call and chat, and in doing so learn more about us.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
Best regards,

John F. Sammons, Jr.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Mid-States Services, Inc.
