Source1 Purchasing, a leading national supply chain performance management company is always pleased when its purchasing partners realize the many benefits of working together. But one organization in particular has yielded even more of a return on their investment by partnering with Source1. The Culinary Institute LeNôtre, the largest cooking and pastry chef school in Houston, Texas, is turning its Source1 rebates into scholarships for their students – providing education for the next generation of culinary and hospitality industry executives.
“The rebate is held in our in-house scholarship fund and awarded to deserving students in dollar amounts that usually range from $500 to $5,000 per year, which are given every 10 weeks,” said Kris Jakob, Vice President/Director of Culinary Arts, Culinary Institute LeNôtre.
Purchasing rebates have historically been complicated for operators, with many inadvertently leaving money on the table due to the notorious paperwork and logistical challenges the process requires. But Source1 streamlines the rebate process for its partners in the lodging, leisure, restaurant and gaming industries.
By automatically keeping track of purchasing, and facilitating the entire rebate procedure, Source1 Purchasing provides one check — coming from a single source — delivered once every quarter. This allows Source1 partners to easily put the funds they’ve earned back to work for their organization, in whatever way they choose.
“As former operators ourselves, we’re well aware of the challenges that getting rebates can present — that’s why we’ve made our rebate program completely hassle-free,” said Scott Hoffmire, President and CEO Source1 Purchasing.
“We’re proud to partner with The Culinary Institute LeNôtre,” said Hoffmire. “It’s extremely rewarding to know that this money will continue to provide education to future experts and industry leaders. And who knows, they might someday be Source1 partners!”
