Five Guys Selects FoodLogiQ to Connect Global Supply Chain
We are proud to announce that Five Guys Burgers and Fries has selected our FoodLogiQ Connect platform for global supply chain visibility, streamlined supplier management, and quality issue tracking and reporting.
For over 30 years, Five Guys has served America with a strong commitment to fresh ingredients and a positive casual dining experience. As leaders in the “better burger” category, the chain of restaurants has quickly expanded to more than 1,400 locations across North America, Europe, and the Middle East.
Driven by this rapid growth, Five Guys required a supply chain solution that could meet its growing supplier management and food quality needs. The global restaurant brand will leverage the FoodLogiQ Connect platform to centralize supplier communications, standards and benchmarking. Using FoodLogiQ’s Manage + Monitor module, Five Guys will standardize and centralize their international supplier food safety program and product quality specifications for their U.S., International (Europe and Middle East), and joint venture business in England.
“We truly have vendors who are partners in the business with us, and our suppliers make up the fabric of our brand,” said Carl Napiwocki, VP Global Supply Chain. “FoodLogiQ enables us to build greater collaboration and visibility with our suppliers so that we can not only protect the Five Guys brand, but protect our suppliers as well.”
“We are excited to add Five Guys to our growing list of customers answering the call for greater transparency from their consumers,” said Dean Wiltse, CEO of FoodLogiQ. “The ease of use of the FoodLogiQ platform allows Five Guys to realize a return on investment by creating efficiencies in their supply chain while also providing the visual and analytical reporting that will drive strategic decisions for their business."
