Pancheros, a fast-casual Mexican restaurant specializing in burritos, has announced its recipient of the Vendor of the Year Award: Reinhart Food Service.

A distributor of food and paper items for the brand, Reinhart was recognized for providing innovative distribution solutions and strategies.

Working with Pancheros for more than eight years, Reinhart has been an integral part of the brand's continued success. The food distributor has not only provided outstanding supply chain management support for the 50-plus locations, but also has been instrumental in the development of the Mexican restaurant's new salsas and marinades.

"Through our partnership with Reinhart, we have been able to improve upon all of our core distribution efficiencies, while decreasing our overhead costs at the same time," says Rodney Anderson, president of Pancheros. "Over the years, Reinhart has been one of our most responsive vendors, and we look forward to continuing this relationship as we grow our brand."

Barry Hopkins, national accounts manager of Reinhart Food Service, says, "We are honored to receive the Vendor of the Year Award from Pancheros Mexican Grill. In our industry, there are many challenges in growing and being successful. With the open and honest alliance we have with Pancheros, we see a great future in our business partnership."
