Spend Time on the Front Lines w/ Brent Chadwick | Video Episode 11

August 18, 2020

How do you look for inefficiencies in your accounting process? If you're Brent Chadwick of Plaid Pantry you get out of the office and into the field (or the store, rather). On this "know your business better" video episode of the CFO Weekly podcast, Brent talks about the time when he joined Plain Pantry, a chain of convenience stores in the Northwest, the first thing he did was spend time working in their store locations to discover what could be improved. This meant running the register, selling soft drinks and shadowing the store managers--living the day-to-day to uncover the how. His plan paid off after finding 400,000 sheets of paper that didn't need to be printed, $15K that didn't need to be spent and a 401K that simply needed to be changed.
