Yeah. Until your customer calls and says a case of beef went up 50% over the previous week. I guess you just tell them “you’ve been cookbooked”! “It’s good for you”! #KoolaidIsPoison

Also, how is it a good idea to show any existing or potential customer a chart of your shell game? Lookie here, I will butter your a** upfront and then cookbook will shaft you later. Then after you leave me, I will come back and try to butter your a** again and hope you fall for it. 🤔

That's a nice sine wave you have going there, Jim.  Or is it cosine?

Regardless, Cookbook isn't going to help you when the trucks don't show up on time, with the items the customers needs, at the price upon which you agreed.

The powers-that-be at USF suffer too much from what real companies call "analysis paralysis".  While you're analyzing, your competitors are sticking it to your "anal"ysis......

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away US Foodservice set up a chains-only division called North Star. Corona was the So Cal hub. All the National Account business was to go through there. There wasn't enough business being run through Corona so they made it a regular USF Division. TMs and DSMs were moved from La Mirada to Corona.

The dividing line was supposed to be the 15 Freeway, but Corona truck still go to LA and Orange Counties for La Quinta and othe chain accounts. La Mirada still goes to Arrowhead and points east.

The other North Star buildings were either closed or turned into regular DCs.

There’s weekly rankings of divisions and usually you see if they are up or down and by what percentage.

They also had to bring a management team over from Walnut. They needed people who knew Coronas footprint. There also wasn’t enough street people to run it and before those people came, they were not even going to roll out Corona for street.

Sheree keeps burning bridges. And burning bridges and burning bridges. I’m surprised she has survived this long really. It’s mind boggling. Makes you wonder why the powers that be are so invested? Not like she has a clue. Any TM that’s been around for a couple years knows more of this business by far. It’s just off. Totally off. Either something completely out of line is or was going on OR they are just worried about more upheaval? That’s all I can figure. Worst fit ever. Customers loathe her and her pretentious attitude. Can anyone enlighten me? I know stuff, but I don’t get this.
