“I love buying through carpenter paper because unlike most other distributors they make you feel like you are apart of there team and not just another unknown person walking the cooperate tightrope. If I ever have any issues they let me know as soon as possible and let me know my options right away so we can get the problem resolved. I know that sounds like it should be normal but it is not, I deal with a number of different vendors and Carpenter is by far and away the best and most professional one I deal with, and it’s not even close! You guys are amazing and I will be buying from them as long as they let me! Thank you guys!”

Zach Smith – Downtown Deli Manager, Caputos Food Market and Deli

“Carpenter Paper, Procurement for an emerging chain is for the most part headache management married to fire fighting. Throw in off-premise dining, whether its catering, simple to go or 3rd party deliverable and the rules seem to change every other week. Paper and disposable goods are one of the most dynamic categories for a QSR brand like ours. With the reality that the category doesn’t possess any accountable revenue generation one might just give up the good fight and settle for the average and easy. However, armed, and I do mean just that with a consultative partnership that transforms your attention, attitude and offering is in my opinion essential. This area of our business moves fast, and a simple transactional equation is nowhere close to what’s needed to succeed. Having Carpenter paper at our side and in step with the Brand from ideation to execution to operations is welcomed by all at this company”

Paul Cryer - Director of Procurement, Sweeto Burrito
