Northwood Country Club is located in the rolling, green hills of Meridian, Mississippi, and was chartered in 1929. It is one of the South's oldest and most prestigious private country clubs. Their members enjoy many amenities including golf, tennis, swimming, a fitness center, fine dining, and banquets. Members also enjoy monthly social activities for both adults and children.
Northwood Country Club acquired ChefTec software in November 2006 to control their costs. In addition to ChefTec they use the seamless Sysco Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) interface which allows the club to download invoices into ChefTec directly from Sysco. Porter Frazier, Director of Clubhouse Operations, had this to say about ChefTec Software:
"As the manager of a private club, we face many of the same challenges that restaurant operators face, and that quite simply is controlling costs. As I look at my P & L, the food cost is the first thing I am interested in. ChefTec has been the best tool that I've had to understand all the information necessary to manage that food cost. More importantly, ChefTec has saved me a huge amount of time - we don't have to spend time inputting invoices and pouring over a myriad of data, to get beneficial information we need to manage the business. I know that I have up-to-date and accurate information right at my finger tips. The sales and technical support teams are some of the best that I have ever dealt with and the expense has more than paid for itself."
I am happy to recommend this wonderful product to any operator of any size. It allows you to use as little or as much as you want and it really can give your small business a home-office-support feel to it. With ChefTec, we have really been able to survive through the economic turmoil and remain profitable. I would not have been able to accomplish this without the support that ChefTec products and services offer.~Porter Frazier Director of Clubhouse Operations Northwood Country Club
