Been in the business for over 20 years. I would just rather sell than complain. Used to have to drop orders at night now I have a laptop. Things change. By the way foodgirl no one has handed me anything ever. You realize that by saying how crappy thing are and putting all this out here you’re hurting your business. Customers get on here and read this. I don’t want to have to explain to another customer why the should not go with Shamrock based off this site where people like FSVET say things like the sky is falling and everything is closing. He doesn’t know more than any of the rest of us. Sit down and be quiet.

Spartandawn, every company has its price. It's possible that Sysco or USF could buy one of the regionals. Or they could combine to form a new company. I've heard Shamrock and Gordon getting together is a possiblity. 

The are hundreds of independents out there that Sysco or USF will gobble up just to get them out of the way or get into a new market.

LOL. Isn't that rich.

Force everything to be done on-line to where you can't grab a check while you are there, than bounce the extra fees off the bozo's whose pay you just cut.

I guess the good thing is that when everyone quits and goes elsewhere, those who are left standing will have a huge book (of the scraps left) just by default. 

Or they will be forced to manage it without pay for the good of the team.

I remember when no one thought US Foodservice/Rykoff-Sexton would be bought, but they were.
And PYA Monarch.
And Alliant-Kraft.
And Pocahontas

Did anyone see Sara Lee being bought by Tyson?
How about Heinz buying Kraft?

It's only a matter of time before one of two things happens;
The likes of Shamrock, Rienhart, Cheney, get bought and rolled into USF, Sysco, etc.
Or they end up in a situation where they go public.  And eventually, turn into Sysco, USF, etc.

It would be smart for two or three of the regionals to get together and form a new national company as an alternative to Sysco and US Foods.

Isn't this more or less the purpose of DMA ?

The original US Foodservice was the umbrella for a dozen independent broadliners who all ran separately. S.E. Rykoff was part of that. Very similar to what DMA does now. Uni-Pro is a combination of several old buying co-ops (CODE, Nugget, Pochahontas).

US Foodservice as a single company came into being after Jim Miller's JP Foodservice bought USF and made it one unified company. The rest, as they say, is history.

You are correct, SoCalFoodDude.  And that was kind of my whole point.  What some people think will never happen, can.  And sometimes, actually does.
