I thought we had the best pricing available. But, Christian Community Homes of Hudson had Value First conduct a cost study with Sysco, and this year will be the first time that we will see a decrease in our food costs by utilizing the Value First contracts. Value First is really worth checking into.

It all starts with the “cost study” - a detailed cost analysis of your current spend compared to Value First contracts with suppliers. We won’t try to gain your business with numbers that we can’t back up. Our Value First representatives will sit down with you and discuss exactly where you want to save money. We’ll work with your purchasing team to provide a line item comparison on exactly how we can help you save.
