ROSEMONT, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--US Foods today introduced its new mobile application that puts interactive ordering tools at the fingertips of its customers. Understanding that foodservice professionals don’t often keep traditional business hours and regularly juggle many job demands, the new app allows US Foods customers to create orders, track deliveries and manage invoices, all from their smartphone or tablet at any time of the day.
