The Pate Dawson-Southern Foods Brand

Consider the following questions:

 1.  “How different would your business be if your foodservice salesperson never SOLD you anything?”

 2.  “How much more profitable would you be if you knew your foodservice professional shared your goal for highest quality food and minimum cost?”

 3.  “How much better would your organization run if you knew that foodservice professionals were looking for ways to streamline your operation and maximize your efficiency and success?”
