- by Jenna Plasterer
ROSEMONT, IL - While it may be a tad cliché, the fact remains true that teamwork makes a dream work, and US Foods is continuing to help restaurant operators keep their dreams alive this winter season by launching its new “Make It This Winter” platform. The new platform offers a collection of resources aimed at overcoming both the ongoing and impending challenges brought on by COVID-19 this winter.
“With colder weather setting in and new restrictions going into effect across the country, our ongoing commitment to helping restaurant operators adapt during the pandemic has never been more important,” said Jim Osborne, Senior Vice President of Customer Strategy and Innovation. “Our new resources are here to help as operators weigh their next steps carefully and seek expert advice for navigating the latest phase of COVID challenges. Whether it’s helping them adjust to evolving guidelines or uncovering additional sources of profit, we’re committed to staying right beside our operators through it all, helping them make it.”
US Foods' newest platform features valuable tools such as one-on-one consultations with US Foods experts, informational webinars, new outdoor dining products, and updated online materials and tools for restaurant operators to utilize this season, according to a press release.
Additionally, US Foods has also rebranded its “Make It Now” website as “Make It This Winter” as it continues to evolve the platform. The site will continue to house COVID-related materials and resources that will guide restaurant operators on new and emerging challenges. Updates have also been made to make the site more comprehensive and easily searchable so that key topics are easy to discover.
Other new COVID-19 resources available on the site include:
- Winter Must Haves
- Operating Safely Guide
All of the features are now available for use through the “Make It This Winter” site and US Foods representatives are also available for one-on-one consultations. For more information on what the resources entail, click here.
