FOOD DISTRIBUTION








           Member centers can increase foodservice profitability by enrolling in the BPAA-SYSCO
           Foodservice Program. Members have the choice to enroll in the full program or a
           partial program.

           FULL PROGRAM: Contract pricing and BPAA Foodservice rebates

           PARTIAL PROGRAM: BPAA Foodservice rebates only

           Contract pricing is margin-based and requires a signed contract outlining margins
           between 8% and 15.5%. The margin schedule is based upon a center’s average order
           size, not the center size, so even the smallest center can bundle purchases and enjoy
           the 8% margin. Margins are on SYSCO’s landed costs, which is the cost SYSCO pays
           for product from suppliers. With price verification rights, this is truly a peace of mind
           program.                                                                Finally, after 5 years of struggling to get our food cost at the

           partnership. ALL centers must request to be linked to the BPAA-SYSCO program for rebates. ALL centers
