Carson, California, November 9, 2020/News Release – Clipper Corporation, a leading provider of uniforms and restaurant supplies, has been awarded the Burger King Supplier of the Year Award. Since its inception, Clipper has provided creative, customized solutions to meet the needs of its customers. 

“After two and a half decades, the core concept of providing our customers with products that meet their exact needs with exceptional pricing and service hasn’t changed,” said Lina Hu, Founder and CEO. “We are thrilled by this recognition of our hard work in 2020.” 

Burger King made the announcement last week at their Worldwide virtual convention. Clipper was able to turn on a dime to help Burger King with their PPE needs including disposable masks, infrared thermometers, and vinyl gloves. 

“We are proud to collaborate with a best-in-class supplier like Clipper Corporation and pleased to recognize them as the 2020 BURGER KING® Supplier of the Year,” said Joel Neikirk, President and CEO of Restaurant Services, Inc., the BURGER KING® system’s independent purchasing and distribution cooperative. “Especially in a year like this one, the brand and its supply chain’s success is, in part, due to the innovative, extraordinary and unmatched support from its dedicated business partners. We congratulate Clipper on their impressive track record and tireless efforts on behalf of the BURGER KING® system which has earned them this well-deserved honor, and we look forward to their continued success.” 

In 1994, Lina Hu founded Clipper Corporation to fill a need she saw in the industry. Customers were looking for custom solutions when the industry was offering standardized approaches. Lina was able to grow this idea into a successful business that continues to grow and expand.
