He said foodservice jobbers he talks with characterize business as steady to above-average.
“Our foodservice sales usually go down when summer comes,” Scott said.
“We sell to customers delivering to schools. There has been a lot of money thrown at the schools for produce purchases. That’s been a nice short in the arm.”
Brian Young, vice president of Coosemans Atlanta Inc., said Atlanta area restaurants serve up favorable business.
He said restaurateurs and jobbers are giving him good reports about the state of the region’s foodservice sales.
Young also said those jobbers retain a key part of the distribution chain.
“Everyone is out there to compete for the same share of the market,” he said. “You can’t get away without selling good quality product.”
