BUSINESS GROWTH STRATEGIES
CREATE YOUR BUSINESS
You are passionate about your business, and so are we. At PDL, we view each unique relationship with our customers as a trusting partnership, working together to help you achieve your business vision by creating offerings that will entice and fulfill your customers' needs.
Our departments have expert staff educated in and knowledgeable about all areas of their industry, from a dedicated on-site pharmacist in our pharmaceutical department to industry-trained chefs as our food service sales representatives. We also hold over 30 years’ experience in our respective fields as a multi-generational owned and operated family company. When working with our team, you can be reassured that you are in good hands.
With our strong producer and manufacturer relationships, we can present you with a wide variety of product ranges to meet your needs. Our broad spectrum of products caters to all our customers, and if at first, you don’t find what you need, we can source specialty brands and products through our global buying network and overseas relationships.
Our working relationship starts with a detailed consultation that encourages conversation and a chance to get to know one another. Understanding what your business requirements are will help us to build and move your business forward. This initial insight details aspects such as what type of product you are looking for, ordering and logistical turnaround times, budget requirements, operational systems and capacities, product shelf life, and market potential for products in the Cayman market. We share and gather as much information as possible to manage expectations on the realities of doing business in the Cayman Islands. Setting you up with an account and dedicated sales representative are initial steps taken to show you why PDL is the superior choice for your business.
