Distributors Adapt to Business Disruptions
This post is for distributors vetting new distribution business software to streamline operations and facilitate faster order fulfillment.
Many restaurant food distributors have adapted to business disruptions by offering meat and produce to the general public.
Restaurant distributors have shifted to focusing on selling to retail customers, and some distributors are providing home delivery for a fee.
“This is chef-grade food,” said Jim Sorkin, a distributor in Philadelphia. His company, Julius Silvert Inc., has laid off 80% of their employees but has kept operations afloat by offering meat, produce and dry goods to new retail customers.
Aid to Unemployed Bartenders
While some bars are offering curbside food pickup, bartenders have been laid off en masse. Miller Lite is donating $1 million to laid-off bartenders in an effort to help with compensation.
The U.S. Bartenders Guild National Charity Foundation now provides an online “tip jar” to provide financial relief for bartenders.
“We ask you to ‘help us serve those who serve us,’” the USBG published on its donation website.
