Elmer's Restaurants, Inc. Honors Boyd Coffee Company with Partner of the Year Award [cached]

Rodney Bryant, Elmer's Director of Purchasing, presented the award to representatives from Boyds sales management team at Elmer's annual management conference held in Coeur d'Alene, ID, on October 10, 2009.

To explain why Boyd Coffee Company received the award, Bryant said, "Coffee is a very emotional product for our customers and our employees; it's near and dear to their hearts. When we changed our coffee purveyor to Boyds [in 2008], we knew it could be challenging," Bryant said. "To our surprise, it couldn't have gone more smoothly. We didn't have one complaint, not one. The Boyds team installed hundreds of equipment pieces in more than 30 restaurants, and to not hear about any issues? Boyds knocked it out of the park!"
"We take a close look at all our partners before choosing one. It's not just about sales volume, it's about quality and service," Bryant said.
Elmer's administration, purchasing employees, restaurant managers and franchisees provided input for the Partner of the Year Award, according to Bryant.
Dick Boyd, Co-CEO and President of Boyd Coffee Company, thanked Bryant, and said, "We are honored and privileged to receive the Partner of the Year Award.

When they couldn't bring in some ... [cached]

When they couldn't bring in some of the local items Elmer's wanted, purchasing director Rodney Bryant turned to specialty distributors.He now also buys from Rosella's Fruit & Produce, Pacific Seafood and Nicky USA, a specialty meat company.

In some instances, Elmer's knew the local products it wanted and asked the distributor to bring them on.In others, Bryant asked the distributor to source the items.He estimates 50 percent of what Elmer's spends now goes to local producers at an average of 10 percent higher prices than on conventional supplies.The company's franchisees, who own all but nine stores, have bought into the program, he adds, in part because the leg work is done for them.
