FEDA Members who have participated in the program rave about their learning experiences, particularly networking with other distribution professionals outside the foodservice industry. Janice Koch, general manager with Best Restaurant Equipment & Design, Inc., Columbus, Ohio, was a participant in the 2004 program and found it to be one of the most valuable education experiences of her career: "UID was four days well worth the time and expense. As general manager for Best Restaurant Equipment & Design, Inc. I feel like I am better informed and hope to convey what I learned to our staff. At the same time, I will encourage the ownership of Best to send the rest of our management team to UID."
