Building customer relationships requires time, effort and sincerity. For Yiannis, it began with a promise to assist food service operators in providing consumers with solutions for meals consumed away from home. Since 1998, when sales were $1million, Yiannis has grown to $67 million in sales for fiscal year 2019.
Many solid customer relationships have been nurtured along the way, countless dining trends and meal alternatives have evolved, and today the decision to consume meals prepared away from home is as much necessity as choice. Since then, the industry it serves has expanded from $5 billion to approximately $255 billion.
Today, Yiannis has sales and service relationships with approximately 150 customers and remains committed to helping them succeed in the food service industry and satisfy consumers’ appetites. Operating from 4 locations throughout the U.S, Yianni’s product lines are as diverse as the 34 employees who support its daily operations. They include not only the ingredients needed to prepare meals, but also numerous ancillary preparation and serving items. As a result, Yiannis can make a difference in its customers’ lives and the success of their businesses.
At Yiannis, we offer our customers more good things than they expect. We go beyond our basic commitment to get customers the food service products they want, when they want them, at the right price and as promised. We do more because we know that when our customers are successful, we’re successful.
Additionally, as stewards of the Earth, it is our responsibility to protect, nurture and build upon the natural resources provided to us. We will continually seek out new ways to grow, harvest and distribute food in a manner that not only preserves and protects the environment, but strengthens our ability to deliver the best possible quality to our customers. In this way, we ensure a healthy future not just for our planet, but for our businesses and end users alike.
