Annual District Manager's Meeting

Annual DM Meeting

VVS Canteen district managers met over five days in Lincoln, Nebraska, for the Annual VVS DM Meeting. Setting business and service goals was at the top of the list, as well as identifying the VVS Values that make us the company that we are.

New concepts, including the Saucemasters BBQ Concept, were discussed with testing dates set for 2016. The new concept brings BBQ from different regions, highlighting what makes each region unique.

While in Lincoln, DMs also had a chance to visit the Lincoln Test Kitchen, where they viewed demos from suppliers of new products. Some of these products, including a new line of African cooking sauces, may make their way into the VVS testing lineup this year.

DMs Visit Chicago

VVS’ District Managers and the Procurement Team took a trip to the Windy City in May to attend the National Restaurant Association Show. The largest conference of its kind, the NRA Show features food products, kitchen equipment, new food concepts and the latest in foodservice technologies.  “It is important to stay on the cutting edge of all aspects of our business,” said John Keifer, COO of VVS Canteen.  “Staying ahead of our competition and taking care of our customers is what got us where we are today. This show helps us do both by helping us understand what is new from our suppliers that will help us continue to reach our goals.”
