the small distributors that will survive/grow are the ones w/a presence in the small grocery/convenience store areas of lower income neighborhoods that support various ethnicities of people. think of the bodegas in NYC and envision that throughout the urban areas of the country. keep it simple selling in bulk and COD. that’s how the big guys started

I don’t consider Cheney to be small distributor; over 2 billion in sales mostly in Florida. They are aggressive and very successful prime vendor to many large accounts. Yes they will deliver small orders b/c they believe in service and helping the independent restaurant. I think CBI comes out of this gaining market share by adapting much more quickly than Sysco.

Agreed. Although Cheney in North Carolina was having rough sledding even before CVD-19. Millions spent on 2 new locations. Rev Rick under tremendous pressure. Reps not producing were let go. This ain’t Florida for sure.

Cheney is everywhere on the coast of NC especially the Wilmington market. They are growing like crazy from what I hear and see. They seem to be holding their own during all this quite well; better than the company I work for that’s for sure. Good things are hard to sell when hey aren’t coming!?!?! No communication from leadership or buyers on anything; just corporate trying to put a spin on everything.
