Source for Grande Cheese in SW Michigan
« on: September 24, 2009, 05:19:34 PM »
I emailed grande cheese today and they sent me what appeared to be a canned response because it was not an inquiry from a legitimate restaurant or supplier. How are the other amateurs getting a hold of grande mozzarella? Any guidance on how to find a source would be helpful. Thanks.

Wow.  I had a similar experience about 6 months ago.  I had emailed Grande and got the most stupid and insensitive response.  Something like . . . We can't sell to you, we can't give you any information where to find, don't be emailing us unless you're a reseller or restaurant, etc . . . . just basically a "go jump in the lake response."  TERRIBLE public relations.  It was so negative and insulting to my very, very simple inquiry.  As a result, I'm not interested in doing business with such a company.  There are other great cheeses out there.

Gordon Food Service (GFS) doesn’t stock Grande cheese but can get it for you in 30 lb cases. They are all over the Midwest area including Michigan , their home state..

GFS is actually where I get my cheese now. Their whole milk mozzarella product is pretty good and is only $2/lb. I didn't realize you could get grande from them though. Thanks.

I am kinda thinking along the lines of what BTB said though. While I can understand them not wanting to sell retail, it is pretty lame to be so rude.
