Multi-unit restaurant operator renews and expands deployment of OnDemand technology to its latest brand acquisition.
Chicago, Ill. – September 11, 2018: ArrowStream®, a foodservice supply chain technology innovator that combines market-leading software and industry data intelligence to improve supply chain performance, announced today that Coffee & Bagel Brands, a multi-unit restaurant operator including the Caribou Coffee®, Einstein Bros.® Bagels, Noah’s New York Bagels®, and Manhattan Bagel® brands, has renewed its license of ArrowStream’s OnDemand technology. With this renewal, Coffee & Bagel Brands will also deploy the OnDemand solution in its latest brand acquisition, Bruegger’s Bagels®.
OnDemand enables companies like Coffee & Bagel Brands to quickly identify price variance savings opportunities and proactively address the most pressing threats in their supply chain. The need for traditional data mining practices to identify these challenges is eliminated and is replaced with centralized visibility into inventory, pricing and quality assurance information across multiple brands.
“A long-time customer, Coffee & Bagel Brands continues to partner with ArrowStream because of our foodservice supply chain technology and industry expertise in optimizing the performance of their supply chain network as it grows in complexity. We continue to push the envelope to drive positive results for Coffee & Bagel Brands and look forward to our Supplier collaboration and discovery application being key components for their expansion,” said Jeff Dorr, Chief Customer Officer, ArrowStream. “It is always a challenge to manage multi-concept restaurants. The varying concepts share similar strategic objectives among their corporate teams, and OnDemand helps them realize those synergies.”
“With ArrowStream, we have the right technology and services to manage our supply chain as it grows with the onboarding of Bruegger’s Bagels,” said Curt Bourg, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Coffee & Bagel Brands. “One major goal is to consolidate items across multiple brands.
