About the Company

The founder and his son started the company in 1975 with one store and minimal inventory in San Antonio, Texas.
Still family owned and operated, the company has grown annual sales from $180,000 its first year to more than $70 million today.
Each store carries an extensive inventory drawn from a total company inventory that exceeds $10 million and occupies more than 400,000 square feet of showroom and warehouse space.

The Challenge

Optimize transportation logistics to lower transportation costs.

Skyrocketing fuel costs threatened this Restaurant Supply Retail Store’s long-time commitment to its customers of surpassing their expectations with superior customer service and affordable, high-quality products that last.


Initially, Broussard only processed the company’s LTL freight bills, but has expanded its services to produce better efficiencies and more savings.
Broussard’s bill-paying service allows the company’s accounting department to write one weekly check for transportation charges rather than cutting a check to each individual trucking company, which has led to a weekly reduction of five hours in labor costs.
Through Broussard’s Web site, the company can generate rate quotes, complete bill of ladings, and monitor freight expenses.
