The Outlet Difference
The Outlet Difference: To both make your shopping experience in The Outlet as pleasant as possible and to ensure you maximize your savings, it’s important to understand The Outlet Difference. Here are a few things to look for while you shop.
You save money by skipping the fancy packaging. Since many of our products are packaged for institutional customers, the packaging may look a little different than the retail packaging you are familiar with. Compare our packaging to the other guys.
Not only can we offer some of the same products you find with the other guys, but we offer you many great, restaurant-quality items you won’t find elsewhere. Hawkeye Foodservice Distribution, our parent company, caters to many fine restaurants, which allows The Outlet the opportunity to offer the same great products to you.
The difference can be seen with food, such as our deep fruit pies, glassware such as wineglasses, commercial pots and pans, and even disposable smallware such as food trays and ketchup cups found in restaurants.
While The Outlet provides traditional sizes, similar in size to what is found with the other guys; we’re able to help you save by stocking up on a wide line of bulk items.
Whether it’s a case of brats for a family barbecue, a #10 can of pie filling for a fund-raiser, or a full case of ice cream cookie bars for the kids, we help you save with bulk buying.
"Hidden Treasure" Finds
The Outlet offers some products to you for a limited time on a rotating basis. Often, when these discount products are gone, they’re gone for good! We have other products, such as small commercial appliances, which will be carried on a rotational and intermittent basis.
When you find one of these items, grab it, because you can’t find these commercial quality products with the other guys! Locate our "Hidden Treasures" by spotting the ‘Hidden Treasure’ stickers (shown to the right) throughout the store!
