As everyone here already knows, Restaurant Depot does not sell to the public. What's the point?
I can go to real foodservice distributors and buy anything they carry. With some distributors, like GFS, I can even get a lot of items in quantities smaller than a case. These distributors gladly sell to me (or you) because it's good for their bottom line. So what's Restaurant Depot's problem?
I wanted to send Restaurant Depot an e-mail to ask them directly why they exclude people like me from boosting their bottom line, but it looks like you can't even contact them without first having an account with them. What's the point?
If you won't sell to Ryan Powell just because he doesn't currently own or operate a restaurant, Restaurant Depot, I can assure you that you will NEVER make a sale to "Ryan's Pizzeria." Y'see, RDP has treated me like an important client for almost ten years, even though they know I'm not even close to realizing my goal of owning a pizzeria. In fact, an RDP sales rep even knew who I was when we bumped into each other at a hockey game once. So guess who's on the top of my list of prospective suppliers, and guess why.
If anyone can give me a good explanation for why Restaurant Depot refuses to sell to people who want to buy from them, please clue me in.
