Direct Pack Inc.’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Laura Murphy, was given a Key Supplier Award at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse 2011 annual meeting in Ojai, CA. These awards are given out annually to BJ’s supplier partners that have made the most significant contributions to the overall quality and that help improve the productivity and leverage of the BJ’s restaurant concept and business model. Direct Pack was able to work with the BJ’s team and come up with a new packaging program that was easier to execute on an operational level, had better aesthetics and ultimately saved BJ’s money. It is not common for packaging suppliers to win awards from chain restaurants, especially when up against beer and produce companies. Direct pack however, worked closely with the customer and understood their needs and was able to come up with a successful plan.
