With more than 50 percent of GFI’s inventory driven by chef requests, GFI has close working relationships within the chef community. Hearing what chefs need directly eliminates guesswork for GFI, and allows them to provide better products, ingredients and overall value. Avendra has helped GFI by opening doors to more kitchens and access to more chefs.
According to Donnie Wade, VP of Foodservice Sales, “GFI 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.”
