 How does it work?

.01

We start with a fact finding mission…
First, we’ll talk about your ingredient sourcing standards, then we’ll discuss your business needs - things like delivery days, preferred delivery windows, etc. so I can create a clear set of guidelines for potential vendors.

If you’re a Virgo (like me) or just really like being prepared, you can download the Free Food Sourcing Guide that walks you through these steps.

.02

I’ll reach out to ALL the vendors, farmers, makers, etc. in your area that meet, or might meet, your sourcing standards and provide them with ALL the necessary details from our first meeting. I’ll request product + pricing information and as it comes it we’ll build out your Custom Ordering + Budgeting Tool.


This phase takes the longest. Some vendors have great product but can be slow to respond.

.03

When I’ve heard back from all potential partners I’ll perform a product quality + cost audit and then we’ll meet to discuss my vendor recommendations and next steps for reaching out and formalizing your partnerships. I’ll also show you how the Ordering + Budgeting Tool works and make sure you’re
set up for success.

In addition, you’ll get a 30-minute minute video tutorial that you can reference at anytime.

Success story

IMG_5997.JPG

BACKGROUND
Vita Kitchen is a growing meal delivery + catering company in Oakland, CA. After being in business for almost a year their client count had grown to the point where a decision needed to be made - stop accepting new clients or continue growing — their decision was to grow! 

PROBLEM
Owner + Chef Elyse was personally shopping for each ingredient that would be prepared for clients. It involved multiple grocery carts overflowing with local + sustainable ingredients, lots of time, and paying retail.  Growing the business successfully meant streamlining operations + creating efficiencies, starting with the grocery shopping. The catch? Vita Kitchen sources some ingredients by the case but other order quantities are small, they have a small window for delivery, minimum storage + top-notch ingredient standards.

SOLUTION
We needed to find partners that could meet their needs now and as they grows, delivery within the specified timeframes + meet their sourcing standards. 

OUTCOME
We were able to identify a wholesale vendor that offers local, seasonal + organic products in quantities as low as 1-lb. and ‘each’, meeting Vita Kitchen’s sourcing standards and sometimes low order units. Dark drops and a small delivery window on Vita’s preferred delivery day sealed the deal.
