When I open I started out with Sysco. I knew they had what I wanted and their warehouse was close enough for a will call pick up. I did after a time go back and get bids from other distributors and ended up changing due to price alone. Service is good but if some one is charging you 10% more than you can get from somewhere else they are not doing you any good. I use Reinhart now. The have been very good and are cheaper.
The thing about Smithfield is that they are Chinese owned now. Also Sysco is in the process of aquiring US Foods.
As long as you don't need specialty meats Sam's are as good as any for your purpose. Be sure to get the case price. There is a big difference in off the shelf and case.
