Purchasing Cooperative for Dunkin’ Joins Leading Foodservice Cloud Platform for Supply Chain Intelligence
CHICAGO – October 24, 2023 – ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), the leading foodservice cloud platform for supply chain intelligence, is thrilled to announce the renewal of its long-term contract with Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers (“Raising Cane’s”), a beloved quick-service restaurant chain known for its delicious chicken fingers and signature Cane’s Sauce. Raising Cane’s is reinforcing their commitment to the continued streamlining and optimization of their supply chain operations among their network of over 700 company owned restaurant locations, 32 distribution locations, and over 100 suppliers.
Raising Cane’s first partnered with ArrowStream in 2017 with just over 300 restaurant locations and 13 distribution locations. ArrowStream was the only technology solution that was able to provide the efficiency and total visibility of the restaurant’s supply chain to enable their rapid growth. ArrowStream has played a pivotal role in digitizing this complex network allowing Raising Cane’s to conduct RFPs with accurate data, reduce out-of-stocks, open new distribution centers with ease, audit contract pricing, and improve overall operational performance amongst purchasing and distribution teams.
“ArrowStream has been an integral part of our supply chain strategy since its implementation and I’m not sure how we’d run our business without them,” said Mitch Plesha, Vice President of Distribution at Raising Cane’s. “ArrowStream fundamentally changed the way we think about our supply chain. They receive, standardize, and process our spend data, giving us detailed visibility to help us manage key critical cost controls and inventory status. This not only helps us, but also our supplier and distribution partners. We now operate in an exception-based environment with ArrowStream highlighting the most critical and possible disruptions in our supply chain, so we can attack those before the problem occurs. We look forward to continuing this successful partnership and achieving new milestones together.”
ArrowStream’s state-of-the-art technology platform has played a vital role in helping Raising Cane’s optimize its supply chain operations, enhance inventory management, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. By leveraging ArrowStream’s tools and expertise, Raising Cane’s has been able to maintain its commitment to delivering high-quality chicken finger meals to its loyal customers while expanding its footprint across the United States and internationally.
“Raising Cane’s is a dynamic and forward-thinking company, and we’re excited to continue supporting their growth and success in a competitive quick-service market,” said Jay Moon, Chief Customer Success Officer at ArrowStream. “This renewal underscores the trust and confidence Raising Cane’s has in ArrowStream as a strategic partner, and we look forward to building on this success in the future as we both continue to expand and drive additional collaboration opportunities.”
