>d DISTRIBUTORS Supply America All-In-One Service Supply America provides its foodservice customers with the best prices, oneon-one service and one of the most comprehensive offerings. By Staci Davidson company profile Supply America Headquarters: Shreveport, La. Specialty: Distribution of equipment, supplies and furniture to chain and multi-unit restaurant operators Supply America: “Supply America is designed and structured to promote our customers’ success.” Supply America has more than $1.2 billion in purchasing power but still has localized service for customers. W hen the owners of chain and multi-unit restaurants need supplies and equipment, most prefer to deal with as few vendors as possible – it’s easier, more efficient and usually costs less than sourcing everything separately. At the same time, owners require quality service to ensure their businesses continue to operate successfully and profitably. Supply America prides itself on being the single-source supplier that can meet all of these various needs. Based in Shreveport, La., Supply America does just as its name describes – it provides chain and multiunit operators with equipment, supplies and furniture, as well as project design, locally based inventory and equipment delivery and installation. With more than 20 distribution centers throughout the United States, Supply America is the country’s largest distribution source for foodservice supplies and equipment. “Our primary focus as a single-source, full-service organization, is to give our customers exceptional value and service every single day,” the company says. “To reach that goal, 13 of America’s leading foodservice equipment and supply dealers have joined forces to form this unique national distribution company. As a single entity, Supply America offers unparalleled experience, pricing, selection, service and efficiency.” As a result of acting as one organization, Supply America has more than $1.2 billion in combined purchasing power and an extensive product representation, but still localized service, which results in reduced freight charges. The company also offers proprietary inventory management, secure online ordering and single-point consolidated reporting. “Supply America is designed and structured to promote our customers’ success,” the company says. “We know 60 food & drink • fall/winter 2012 • <<
