Dot Expressway®

On April 1, 1997, the Dot Expressway went live. Its main purpose was to allow customers and suppliers product information with the click of the mouse. The first version of the Dot Expressway displayed the entire Dot Foods price book, stock staus, and product set-up information-though the data in 1997 was hardly real-time. 

Over the years, multiple redesigns have transformed the website into a sleek, user-friendly, personalized ordering and fulfillment tool, with an online shopping cart optimized for mobile access.

It's an online, convenient way to place orders, track purchase history, and search our product catalog 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
