They do say that they think the problem isn't Adams it's the sales manager. Apparently the guy is beyond egotistical. He seemed like a smug sob when I interviewed w him. Did other folks take the bullet at the last place Adams was?

In NC it's not GFS you need to worry about it's the fact Cheney is coming into this market fast and furious. Cheney will shake this market up from the mountains to the coast and everywhere in between. These guys know how to service the customer and their product line is awesome. Cheney Brothers is here so if you are with Sysco, US, PFG, or GFS expect to feel the pain. You will all be affected by them being in your market no matter how long you've been here or how good you think you are. Pate Dawson/Southern Foods count your blessings b/c these guys saved your ass. Learn their systems and products and enjoy taking names b/c you my friend went from being subpar to the best in the business.

Cheney is in Florida and Ga - I believe Pate is SC, NC, and VA - Cheney is setting up the computer system at Pate and looking to build out the warehouse. From what I hear the Pate salespeople are very exited and they should be. I do super awesome with Cheney and know they will do great at Pate too.

Cheney is a worthy competitor. They are family owned, take good care of their workers and their merchandiser's are very smart buyers. Their prices are extremely low, super competitive and their quality is there.
