…Choose a Foodservice Supplier
If you are starting a new Foodservice restaurant, café, pub or bistro; here are some quick tips about how to choose the right foodservice supplier for you.
Tip 1: Choose a foodservice supplier that takes a genuine interest in your business and explains how the company operates. The more values you have in common, the easier it will be to form a strong, long term business partnership.
Tip 2: Look for a supplier who can supply your business with all of your foodservice requirements and grow with you. Particularly, do they have a good range of fresh and frozen seafood? Can they offer portion cut and whole fresh meat? This will reduce the number of people you need to work with and manage within your supply chain. It will also cut down the number of invoices to pay and process and administration.
Tip 3: Customer service is invaluable to any business. Look for a foodservice supplier that understands the value of service. Ask potential suppliers about their service and fulfillment levels. When can you place orders? Do they offer product specialists that can assist you key areas like meat and seafood?
Tip 4: Look for Australian business partners. Not only will you be supporting our economy but you will also be contributing to keeping Australians employed. The better the economy the more discretionary income people have to spend eating out.
