What is Restaurant Supply Chain Management and Why Is It Important?

Supply Chain Management is the administration of the distribution of resources needed to run a restaurant. Without proper management of supply chains, the restaurants’ goods and products may arrive late or not at all, which is problematic for Chain Restaurants. When one restaurant doesn’t have what they need, customers will likely go to competitors instead. Chain Restaurants should be well informed by their franchisor about who their “approved” suppliers and distributors are. There are now a number of technology “solutions” that can assist store managers and their distributors in ordering the appropriate amounts of supplies more precisely than in previous decades, such that they do not run out of any items. These technology “solutions” also help ensure that they do not order too much, which costs them money long-term, and uses precious storage space.
