    Culver's drops Sysco for Gordon Food Service | QSRWeb

    Culver's is reportedly switching its food supplier entirely to Gordon Food Service. The Wisconsin-based chain had also used Sysco for about 60 percent of its system.

    They are using FSA in other areas (out west) that we don't service. They are teasing a big announcement November 2nd, so maybe there will be news that you will like.

    I spoke with a manager of a culvers and they switched mainly because of cost savings. Gordon and FSA won't add fuel surcharge that sysco had between 15-18 bucks per stop each week. They also offer a .05 cent rebate per case if you pay the bill same day. or .02 cent in you pay within 5 days. She said the big volume stores will save 10,000 a year if they take advantage. I guess sysco needed the $$ lol

    Now that they have professionals delivering the product, they wonder why they didn't sign on long ago. :burnsauce:
