Dealer of the Year Award

The FE&S Dealer of the Year award is recognized as the pre-eminent honor in foodservice distribution. This award dates back nearly a quarter of a century and recognizes the industry's most outstanding E&S distributor. After soliciting nominations and input from the industry, the FE&S staff selects the Dealer of the Year based on the fact that the company has:

  • Achieved a dominant position in their marketplace
  • Earned a track record of participation in and contribution to the industry
  • Established a history of progressive management and staff development
  • Maintained an unblemished record of integrity
  • Developed a reputation for establishing and sustaining win-win relationships with their channel partners

These high standards make this award an honor that recipients cherish throughout their careers, as witnessed by the fact that 10- and 15-year old issues are proudly displayed on past winners' desks.

Each year the magazine features the winner in the FE&S' May cover story. This in-depth, no-holds-barred profile provides the industry with a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of its shining stars of distribution.
