Moe’s Southwest Grill has contracted with North America’s largest food service marketer and distributor, SYSCO Food Services, to consolidate its U.S. food purchasing and distribution program. The partnership dramatically improves and streamlines Moe’s Southwest Grill’s supply chain, which will yield increased efficiencies and cost savings throughout its 340 stores. As the company continues its growth, the SYSCO partnership will prove to be an alliance as Moe’s Southwest Grill transitions from a regional chain to a national concept.
The new purchasing and distribution programs are centrally managed and supported allowing the company to order, report, track, and control inventory with a secure, real-time Internet system. Company executives worked with franchisees to align with SYSCO Food Services for greater purchasing power benefiting the entire system.
“We are very excited to partner with a fast-growing and dynamic brand like Moe's Southwest Grill and we look forward to working with the many franchisees who have helped to create such a powerhouse brand," said John Eichelberger, vice president of sales for Sysco Food Services. "With our reach and expertise in supply chain management we hope to service the many Moe's Southwest Grill's locations nationwide many years into the future."
