Wellfleet Harbor Seafood Company, owner of the Mac’s Seafood family of restaurants and seafood markets in Eastham, Wellfleet and Provincetown, Mass. announced the strategic acquisition of the Chatham Fish and Lobster Company, based in the Cape Cod town of Chatham.
Mac’s Seafood has been a client of Chatham Fish and Lobster Co. for over 23 years due to the quality of the seafood, consistent and dependable service and commitment they show to the local community – from the fishermen and women who sell their catch, to the restaurants that depend on Chatham Fish and Lobster’s supply.
“Mac’s Seafood has been buying fresh fish from Chatham Fish and Lobster since we opened our business in 1995 because they purchase locally and always deliver superior seafood. For the last few years, we have been one of Chatham Fish and Lobster’s largest customers,” said Mac Hay, co-founder and owner of Mac’s Seafood. “With the acquisition of Chatham Fish and Lobster, we will be able to continue our direct line of buying the freshest catch from our fishing community and secure access to the best products Cape Cod waters have to offer.”
“Know where your fish comes from has always been our mission at Mac’s,” added Hay, “as we believe that sourcing locally and providing sustainable, high-quality products is the key to our success. Growing our business to include a foundational supplier with an impeccable reputation for excellence and service seemed like a natural progression for us.”
Chatham Fish and Lobster Co. will continue to operate under the same name with existing staff. Former owner David Carnes will stay on in a consulting capacity during the corporate integration. Mac’s Seafood’s long-range plans include system, equipment and technology upgrades to improve efficiency and customer service.
