Brakes has been providing top-quality food and catering supplies to the food service industry for more than 60 years. The company was started by brothers Peter, William and Frank Brake from the back room of a pub, and since those early days Brakes has grown into the leading food service wholesaler in the UK.
The company now employs more than 6,500 people and has the most extensive range of own-brand products in food service. The entrepreneurial spirit of the Brake Brothers remains a lasting legacy for the business. The secret to their success was identifying what customers needed and the great and small things that will help them to succeed.
The business may be bigger and more diverse today with an increased focus on other categories such as fresh produce, but understanding what matters to customers is still as important today as it was when Frank Brake was personally delivering orders across London in those early days.
In 2016, Brakes became part of the Sysco family – giving Brakes access to new processes, products and technology that come from being part of the largest foodservice company in the world.
We can follow a product through its entire flow, from procurement to inventory and sale. It has given us an in-depth understanding of the relationship between the three, allowing HQ to quickly intervene when something is wrong.
