We consider ourselves very fortunate to be a part of such a membership-focused organization. In the few years that we have been members our company’s bottom line has improved by not only sharing ideas and best practices with other independent distributors, but also by improving our relationships (through WASDA) with all of our major vendors. In addition, by participating in the annual WASDA survey, we are able to measure our critical profit variables with other members and against industry standards to identify real areas of improvement. As a result, our participation with WASDA has helped our company’s bottom line to the point we are now listed as one of the top 500 Hispanic owned businesses in America.

We are satisfied with our decision to join WASDA and the value that it has created.
