PIT: wholesale cheese recs?

Can anyone direct me to wholesale food services that specialize in artisan cheeses for retail/restaurants in the Pittsburgh area? Thanks in advance.

  1. I'm pretty sure Pennsylvania Macaroni (PennMac) has a wholesale/restaurant/delivery operation in addition to their more well-known retail presence in the strip. Depending on how rare/local/etc. you're looking for, they should have a very large range of cheeses available. I think if you're looking for stuff that they can't source, you're probably going to be talking to the cheese-makers themselves to get the products.

    1. I believe that Euro USA, a specialty foods wholesaler/distributor in Cleveland, delivers to Pittsburgh. I'd also recommend giving McGinniss Sisters a call. They may be able to point you towards other options.

        Penn Mac has a big wholesale group used by many restaurants.
