I am a foodservice distributor and would like to know how I can set myself apart in such a commoditized industry. A potato is a potato, a can of sauce is a can of sauce.
1) How are your suppliers categorized? Produce, meat, packaging, dairy, Sysco/one stop shop, etc
2) What are the main reasons you chose your suppliers? Reputation, word of mouth, convenience, quality, price, flexibility, etc
3) What are some things/incidents that have pissed you off about your suppliers?
4) What are some things that a supplier has done that really stood out to you in a positive way?
Thanks for any feedback
