Keys To Success
Frump attributes R. L. Schreiber's
success to several things, including
its high-quality products and superior
customer service. "We've been successful because of our attention to de-
tail and focus on food safety," he says.
"All of that circles back to our ability to
customize products to meet customer
demands. It's also a nod to our independent purveyor network, who take
our products to market to the foodservice operators we serve across the
country. What sets us apart from our
competition is the quality and personalized service our purveyors provide."
R. L. Schreiber' customers are
foodservice and manufacturing companies. "We're fortunate to be in a
great category that is experiencing
strong growth," Frump says. "The
projected annual growth rate of the
spice, seasoning and food base categories for the next several years is
5 to 6 percent. We expect to exceed
that because of the substantial investments the company has made in adding more management support for our
regional purveyors and customers.
"The company has also made investments in new programs that
drive performance and attract firstclass talent over the past several
years," Frump adds. "These investments support the company and have
helped to spur performance."
