BJ’s Awards FreshPoint the Gold Standard Partner Supplier of the Year

This year at the 2018 BJ’s Brewhouse General Manager Conference, FreshPoint was awarded the Gold Standard Partner Supplier of the Year.  It was with true honor to accept the distinguished award that acknowledges the partnership we have nourished and continue to grow.

“This is a huge honor as BJ’s has hundreds of vendor partners and for FreshPoint to be singled out as the best is just amazing.” – Ted Beall, Vice President of Sales & Marketing

BJ’s Restaurant & Brew House was established back in 1978 in Southern CA, and they have since opened their restaurant doors in 27 states and established 201 restaurants. They are known for their award-winning craft beer, Chicago Pizza with a Southern California twist and Pizookies, they’re world-renowned dessert.

Throughout the years our partnership has expanded from delivering quality produce.

We have collaborated to deliver their craft beer for it to keep its crisp flavor and to never break the cold chain. We continue to partner up with them to be their most valued trusted business partner.

“Humbly speaking, this exemplifies a significant point of difference.  A singular competitive advantage.  We are simply the best!” – Steve Lay, Regional Vice President – West.

With the collaboration of key contacts, such as Chris Cahoon, Mavi Ozdemir, the rest of the H.O.M.E team and our Operating Companies, we have built a partnership providing leading customer service to all of the complexities that encircle BJ’s Brewhouse.

“This is “being our customers most valued and trusted business partner.” Accomplished with consistency and teamwork.” – Randy Slentz, President FreshPoint SoCal

We are proud to be BJ’s Brewhouse Gold Standard Partner Supplier of the Year Award and honored to be part of their continuing growth.
