This series will provide you with helpful tools and guidelines to make the best choice for your company. There are 7 key elements to address when you are working through your selection process. This post will focus on the very important element of vendor location.
SIZE OF COMPANY - When you research for a new vendor, you will want to make sure the size of the company is going to match your needs and be able to satisfy your customers. Someone too big might not be able to provide personalized customer service, which may be a big feature you are looking for. On the other hand, if the company is too small, it may become a hassle to deal with inventory issues. A small vendor may not have deep enough inventories to handle the volume or size of your special events.
During your initial contact and consultation with the vendor, find out if they have a minimum order size that they require to facilitate your rental needs. By asking questions about potential orders or quantities you ask for on a regular basis, you can get a feel for their ability to provide a deep inventory to handle orders. You will want to know if they have the capacity to handle your volume if your facility is one of the bigger caterers or rental centers in your area. Make sure they will be able to fulfill your orders without causing issues for your linen needs.
