Efficient Operations

Lowest Operating Overhead

Do it Best continuously maintains the lowest cost of operations in the industry. We work hard to keep expenses low so we can provide our members with the industry’s most consistently high rebate—more than $1 billion in just the last decade. We’ve kept our operating overhead below 3% for more than ten years!

Our employees play a major role in successfully managing our overhead costs. Our entire team is dedicated to helping our members grow their businesses and achieve their dreams. It’s our #1 goal. When you call or visit with our team, you can expect the most dedicated, responsive, and well-trained staff in the industry. It’s just another way we live out our philosophy of serving others like we would want to be served.

Our operating overhead is further reduced because we effectively manage any long-term debt. Our members are not burdened with wasted interest payments from prior poor spending. We completely own and operate our modern distribution centers and our corporate headquarters.

Efficient Operations

90% Products Available One-each

We know inventory is the largest investment in your store, so we help our members better manage that inventory investment by offering 90% of the products stocked in our warehouses in quantities of one-each. In fact, no other distributor or co-op breaks as many cartons as we do.

Efficient Operations

Fill Rate

We want our members to spend more of their time serving their customers, not worrying about inventory. At Do it Best, we are committed to consistently achieving an excellent fill rate. Our high fill rate helps your customers get the products they need and keeps those sales from going elsewhere. With our laser focus on fill rate and order-filling accuracy, nobody does it better than Do it Best.
