  • J. Lohr Named Top On-Premise Supplier at Annual VIBE Awards

    VIBE Award

    NEW YORK, Octo­ber 4, 2021 VIBE Con­fer­ence, the pre­mier on-premise bev­er­age con­fer­ence for chain bev­er­age exec­u­tives, announces the top adult bev­er­age sup­pli­ers at the 2021 Sup­pli­er Awards. 

    For the past ten years, the Sup­pli­er Awards has invit­ed bev­er­age oper­a­tors to rate their respec­tive sup­pli­er com­pa­nies on key attrib­ut­es includ­ing busi­ness-build­ing sup­port as well as ser­vice and sup­port per­for­mance through an online sur­vey. To ensure effi­cient, fair and unbi­ased bal­lot­ing and analy­sis, sur­vey results were ana­lyzed by food and bev­er­age indus­try research and con­sult­ing firm CM Prof­it Group. Win­ners were then iden­ti­fied in four cat­e­gories includ­ing beer, wine, spir­its and non-alco­hol bev­er­ages, cat­e­go­rized by total annu­al case volume.
