Speaking during a session at the annual convention of the Western Association of Food Chains in Palm Desert, Calif., Klug said the Los Angeles-based member-owned cooperative has begun collecting scan data and focusing on analytics for more than 800 of its member stores, and we'll use that information to help members drive top-line sales and also use the data internally to help make better decisions based on consumer demand rather than just warehouse movement.
