Mendocino Farms Joins ArrowStream’s Network to Support Growth Strategy with Supply Chain Data Technology
Chicago, IL – January 26, 2021 – ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), the leader in end-to-end supply chain management software for the foodservice industry, welcomes Mendocino Farms Sandwich Market (“Mendocino Farms”) to its network of over 250 chain restaurant operators, 1,000 DC locations and 8,000 foodservice suppliers.
Mendocino Farms, founded in 2003, is a fast casual sandwich and salad concept with a strong emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. Their high-quality dining experience and hospitality towards consumers initiated a quick expansion to 35 locations across California and Texas. With an extended growth strategy in place, Mendocino Farms turned to ArrowStream to ensure effective supply chain management that would support their future business expansion.
“We knew it was critical for us to establish a strong supply chain operation if we wanted to accelerate our growth,” said Michael Chalmers, VP of Supply Chain at Mendocino Farms. ”As we open more restaurants, we are now positioned with the right data technology and partner to manage supply changes while eliminating other supply chain risks, reducing costs and protecting our brand.”
ArrowStream’s Supply Chain Visibility and Contract Price Auditing solutions enable Mendocino Farms to gain consolidated and timely visibility into their product spend and inventory levels at each distribution center, audit 100% of their contracted spend, and streamline communication with their suppliers and distributors. To maintain supply chain quality compliance and avoid food safety issues, Mendocino Farms will later roll out ArrowStream’s Quality Incident Management solution to all restaurant locations, increasing the transparency and quick resolution of quality issues.
“Leveraging data and innovative technology is a necessity for growing brands, not just for the larger brands,” said Marc Larson, Sales Director at ArrowStream. “Mendocino Farms is now among our increasing customer-base of emerging restaurant chains that recognize our solutions as a key component to their competitive growth strategies because they are scalable and provide the same benefits that large brands receive. We couldn’t be more thrilled to support Mendocino Farms in reaching their business goals.”
