With more than 50 percent of AFI’s inventory driven by chef requests, AFI has close working relationships within the chef community. Hearing what chefs need directly eliminates guesswork for AFI, and allows them to provide better products, ingredients and overall value. Avendra has helped AFI by opening doors to more kitchens and access to more chefs.
According to Donnie Wade, VP of Foodservice Sales, “AFI works with discriminating culinary experts and being an Avendra partner means that doors open easily for us. Hearing feedback directly from chefs makes our tasks easier and allows us to focus on the best ingredients and our passion for food.”
