Carl's Jr., La Salsa Get Automated
Restaurant chains Carl's Jr. and La Salsa Fresh Mexican Grill are optimizing system-wide food purchasing by implementing Instill's Food Spend Management solution in its locations.
"A year ago we implemented Instill's Food Spend Management solution for Hardee's restaurants," says John Dunion, executive vice president of supply chain management for CKE Restaurants, Inc. "We were so impressed with the supply chain visibility that we decided to extend it across our enterprise and include Carl's Jr. and La Salsa restaurants."
The Instill Food Spend Management solution allow Carl's Jr. and La Salsa operators to capture the value of its contracts through monitoring and identifying contract price variances, purchases eligible for rebate, opportunities for SKU rationalization, and other cost savings. Instill automates the collection and standardization of unit level invoice data from distributors and presents the information in powerful, intuitive applications that allow purchasing professionals to capture these savings while significantly improving their productivity.
