Our Procurement Philosophy
We believe that great guest experiences begin with great partner experiences. That is true for many aspects of our business and the supplier partnership is no different. Building lasting relationships with our suppliers is something we’re very proud of. Our suppliers range from small independent farmers and family businesses to multi-national corporations. Some products will be intended for a few select Earls locations, while others will be used across Canada and the USA. By maintaining a diverse supplier mix and a keen use of innovation, persistence, integrity and passion, we ensure that we’ll always be able to give our exceptional experiences and outstanding value.
Becoming an Earls Supplier
Although our style has been called West Coast Casual for the laid back atmosphere and experience, we are fiercely disciplined about selecting the products and the services that support our restaurant operations. Our procurement style aims to be open and fair, allowing for businesses of all sizes with a product that could enhance the Earls experience, to present themselves and be considered. We consistently care about every detail to ensure that we are fulfilling the expressed and unexpressed wishes and needs of our guests. If you want to be part of this, we invite you to tell us a little more about your company and your product or service.
The first step is for you to get to know us a little better. Have a look around our website, read our blog, check out our social media channels. But most importantly, come visit us in person. It’s the in-person experience that will give the very best sense of who we are. Compare our products or services to the one that you supply. Observe our guests and give special attention to how your product or service can enhance the guest experience at Earls. Then, when you’re ready, we’d love to hear from you.
Next, we ask that you complete our supplier introduction form - so that we can get to know a little about you. From there, your information will be be reviewed by one of our buyers.
And finally, few things can happen next: If the product or service is of interest to us, we’ll certainly be in touch to gain more info. If we are under contract for a similar product or it is simply not required at this time, we’ll be sure to let you know why. We look forward to hearing all about you.
