Operator Purchasing Process Study
This study was conducted on behalf of FE&S magazine by Reed Research Group. A representative sample of 400 foodservice operators in the commercial and noncommercial sectors. The survey covers a battery of topics relating to operator usage and satisfaction with the distribution chain.

• Operator usage of various channels for gathering product information and making E&S purchases.
• Which channels do operators prefer? Do they gather information from one channel but make the purchase through another?
• Latest data on operator utilization and perceptions of the website in purchasing E&S products.
• Suggestions from operators on what dealer/distributors can do to improve customer satisfaction.
