We credit our success to hiring only the very best talent and keeping a strong focus on company culture, and employee engagement and development. People are at the core of everything we do. If you’re looking for a career, and not just a job, Clark Associates is the right fit for you.
At Clark, procurement is more than simply buying inventory; it’s carrying a product through its entire life cycle. We find the products, negotiate costs and programs, set pricing, create a marketing plan, and manage inventory. Because we manage the process from start to finish, we are able to create and execute efficient strategies to increase our share of the market.
Our e-commerce company, WebstaurantStore.com, has revolutionized supply chain in the foodservice industry, changing the way that everything from foam cups to freezers get into kitchens and storerooms of restaurants, hotels, schools and hospitals around the world. As a company, we continue to achieve unprecedented and unparalleled growth. Whether importing from overseas or developing new products with domestic partners, we work hard to increase our lead within one of the world’s oldest and largest industries.
Your challenge as a procurement intern will be to maintain and propel that growth through our three separate and unique channels of distribution: Clark Food Service Equipment (traditional dealer model), The Restaurant Store (cash and carry model), and WebstaurantStore.com (e-commerce model). This opportunity allows you to be an integral part of a fast-paced, challenging work environment focused on research, product development, sourcing, negotiating, inventory control, marketing and much more. You will have direct Influence over the way thousands of dollars of inventory move from our vendors, through our 11 stores and 15 distribution centers, and finally, to the end user.
