Five Guys and FoodLogiQ: Working Together and Partnering for Success

Guest blogger Robbie Wiggins, a FoodLogiQ Customer Success Manager, shares highlights from his visit to Five Guys headquarters in Lorton, Virginia.

Hello, World!  It’s me again - Robbie, your ever-excited FoodLogiQ Customer Success Manager. Today I want to talk a bit about what it means to be in a successful business partnership.  

When I think of working together in a partnership, several words come to mind: support, commitment, and open and honest communication, just to name a few. And while we here at FoodLogiQ truly value all of our business partnerships, today I want to focus on one in particular.  It was launched in April 2017, when Five Guys  began collaborating with FoodLogiQ to gain greater insight into their supply chain, centralize their supplier management, and utilize quality issue tracking and reporting to accomplish their business goals.
