LEMONT, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Consolidated Distribution CorporationSM, LLC (CDC), the leading QSR, fast casual and casual dining supply chain solutions company in the U.S., continues to prove its value to restaurant chains in providing redistribution services.
CDC’s redistribution model reduces supply chain costs by shipping truckload quantities of slower-moving and promotional frozen and nonperishable food items, disposable supplies and other products to its warehouses. CDC is then able to create truckload shipments of consolidated products for the distributor, resulting in a lower landed cost.
One such customer is Restaurant Supply Chain Solutions, LLC (RSCS), formerly known as Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op. RSCS is the exclusive supply chain management organization for Yum! Brands, Inc. and its three restaurant systems: KFC, Pizza Hut (including Wing Street) and Taco Bell. RSCS also manages the supply chain for the A&W and Long John Silver’s restaurant systems through specific purchasing agreements. CDC is the exclusive foodservice supply chain redistribution provider to the organization, partnering with these restaurants for nearly two decades.
Another customer, the exclusive supply chain management and distribution cooperative for BURGER KING® restaurants in North America (Burger King Corporation and Restaurant Services, Inc), has awarded CDC its 2013 Distributor of the Year award for CDC’s contributions to supply chain efficiency. CDC has worked with the organization since 1993.
The award recognizes CDC’s redistribution expertise and its unique ability to act as a distributor to the company’s suppliers and as a supplier to its distributors. CDC consolidates shipments of slower moving items and limited time offers in the system into full truckload shipments inbound to its Chicago, Atlanta or Dallas facilities. In turn, food service distributors then purchase full truckloads from CDC, buying just the right amount at the best possible cost.
