Denny’s Selects Consolidated Distribution for Redistribution Services

The redistribution model ships truckload quantities of slower moving items to warehouses, reducing supply chain costs

Lemont, Ill.Sept. 2, 2014Consolidated Distribution Corporation, LLC (CDC), a quick-service restaurant (QSR), fast casual and casual dining supply chain solutions company in the U.S., was selected by Denny’s Corporation to provide strategic foodservice redistribution services.

“We determined that having CDC as our redistribution partner enhances our current distribution model,” said Mark Gray, Denny’s senior director of distribution and logistics. “Denny’s will benefit from the cost savings of redistribution, but we will also take advantage of CDC’s expertise in managing large restaurant chains’ redistribution programs and their level of customer service.”

CDC’s redistribution model reduces supply chain costs by shipping truckload quantities of slower-moving frozen and nonperishable food items, disposable supplies and other products to its warehouses. CDC is then able to create truckload shipments of consolidated products to the distributor, resulting in a lower landed cost.

According to Bryan Gaines, director of sales, CDC, “Over the past six years, we experienced tremendous growth as more and more restaurant chains and purchasing co-ops chose CDC, not only to make sure they?re getting the lowest landed price through redistribution, but also because of our customer service.”

Since 1990, CDC has been providing supply chain management solutions to foodservice franchisors and purchasing cooperatives of some of the most famous brands in American restaurants.
