From the competitive landscape to the consumer trends, we build savings on a foundation of market knowledge and insight.
It helps to be North America’s biggest foodservice purchasing organization and to have the volume of our parent, Compass Group, as negotiating leverage, but it’s not enough. We also have to have people at the table who know the suppliers, the competitive and regulatory landscapes, the consumer trends and the economies of scale better than anyone else at the table. That ensures that we’ll not only get our members the best possible deal, we’ll give our suppliers the best possible opportunity. And keep everyone’s standards sky high by reviewing service level agreements, third-party safety audits, insurance indemnification and emergency preparedness.
