Do you get your flour, sugar etc from a place like Restaurant Depo, or are there places out there that deliver just like dairy products?
GFS, Sysco, USFoods, Dawn, etc. all are food wholesalers who deliver. Many will have a minimum truck delivery order (they won't deliver just one 50-lb bag of flour .... you have to order $250 worth of stuff).
50-lb bags of flour, sugar .... a case of15 doz eggs ..... cinnamon in a big "gallon" size container ...... p.sugar/brown sugar ...... oatmeal (for cookies) ..... peanut butter (for cookies) ...... cases of 25 one-pound blocks of butter/margarine ...... oil/shortening ...... it can add up for you!
Indy is right..It doesn't take long to add up to the minimum they require to deliver....Dawn foods here requires $300.00
Look into Sysco, International Gourmet Foods (IGF) or George Ruhl. I know George Ruhl has a $500 minimum, but I'm not sure about Sysco. IGF is around $250 - $300.
I use Ruhl, Lentz and Sysco. Usually a $500-700 minimum.
BakeMark is another place to try. We order from them all the time. Don't know if there is a min. for orders.
