CDS Vending

CDS’s suppliers are an integral part of our success, and we value partnerships to the highest level possible. We work to build the strength of our suppliers in many ways. We often go to our suppliers with product recommendations based on the trends we are seeing – one more way that we provide a valuable link from one end of the food industry to the other.

Because of the value we place on supplier relationships, we are building our capabilities to become an even more effective partner, bringing some of the category management strategies used in consumer marketing to the food service business.

Our connection with our suppliers happens not just at the point of purchase, but at many touch points across the spectrum of our business, from supply chain to quality assurance to sales planning and marketing. We are currently assessing how we can be more integrated with our largest suppliers on as many levels as possible.

CDS Vending is always looking for new quality partners that we can grow together with. Our focus at trade shows and events is not only to find customers but also to find new partners. Let’s do business together.
