1. Why is supplier diversity important to Brinker?
At Brinker, we genuinely value diversity in people and perspectives. In order to be truly successful, we understand the need to embrace diversity among our team members, guests, communities and suppliers.
Now more than ever, these groups are interconnected; our suppliers are our guests. Together our suppliers and our team members make up the communities we serve. By generating wealth and opportunity among our suppliers, we inevitably create a stronger, more prosperous community.
2. Why is minority or woman-owned certification important?
Due to the rigorous third-party certification process involved in being recognized as a minority or woman-owned supplier, a certification provides objective confirmation of ownership and management status.
3. My company is not a certified minority or woman-owned business. Can my company still become an approved supplier?
In order to be recognized through our supplier diversity program, a company must be certified as minority or woman-owned; however, Brinker works with all types of companies that meet our procurement qualifications.
If you are uncertain as to whether your company falls within the parameters of our supplier diversity program, contact us at PurchasingSuppliers@brinker.com.
4. What happens after I submit a supplier profile form?
Upon reviewing your completed supplier profile form, Brinker Supplier Diversity will contact you for any supplementary information needed.
We will then forward your information to the Brinker team who manages the products and/or services you provide. Follow-up may take up to four weeks.
If a business opportunity for your company arises, a Brinker team member will contact you to discuss next steps. You may contact us with any additional questions at PurchasingSuppliers@brinker.com.
