“Having worked for Honey Farms and with the Iandoli family for over 40 years, the sale of the company is bittersweet, but the outcome for the family has been very successful. I want to thank the Iandoli family and our talented employees whose enduring commitment built an extremely strong company. Lastly, I want to thank our M&A advisors, Matrix, and our legal counsel, Fletcher Tilton, who did a wonderful job advising the company and the family through this process.”

Honey Farms, Inc.
“Matrix did an outstanding job of identifying a partner that both shared my vision and accomplished my goals in this transaction without a prolonged and time-consuming auction process. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with J.H. Whitney and to continue to serve all of our customers’ needs.”
Stephen Fogler, President
“We’re very grateful for the guidance and insight Matrix provided to help Giant Eagle secure this growth opportunity. At GetGo, our positioning of taking the ‘cons out of convenience’ means we offer the highest quality fresh foods, products and services to our customers. Our acquisition of the Ricker’s chain supports this strategy, and we look forward to bringing together the best of both businesses in Indiana.”
Polly Flinn, Executive Vice President
