University Foods was established in 1984 by Jerry D. Schauer. The company has expanded from one truck and limited product list to eleven trucks and a comprehensive list of products for the foodservice industry. The company’s mission is to provide top quality food products with quick reliable service to restaurants, hotels, educational institutions, and other foodservice providers.
The company currently offers over 8,000 products which include beef, poultry, fresh sea food, cheese and dairy products, produce, lamb, pork, paper goods, and disposables. In order to insure the highest quality and freshest products, University Foods prefers to deliver manufactured items the same day that they are produced. This also provides the customer with products with a longer shelf life.
One of the keys to University Foods success has been the utilization of NEC, a state of the art computerized distribution system. This system allows the company to instantly retrieve each customer’s product specifications and pricing, and delivery requirements. Management,Sales, Order Entry and Delivery personnel all utilize this information to service our customers.
University Foods services over 800 customers in both the Ventura and Los Angeles counties. By utilizing distribution centers in Valencia, Vernon and Alhambra, all of our customers are less than 30 minutes from distribution. This gives us the ability to respond quickly and efficiently to our customers needs.
We are confident that the quality of our products and our customer service will exceed all of your expectations. In order to substantiate our claims, on the next page, we have provided you with a list of customer references. We will be glad to provide you with more upon request.
