SIX POINTS HISTORY
Six Points, Inc., began in 1992 with selling toothpaste, towels and concrete barriers to the federal government. It wasn't until 1995, with the passage of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act that the sale of meat and frozen meat products became the dominant sales product for Six Points. We started manufacturing meat products in a local plant and we soon expanded our sales to the point that we had to move to production in larger and larger plants.
The Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act is based on Prime Vendors which are the large national food distribution companies such as US Foods, SYSCO and others. These companies receive large contracts to provide a myriad of food products to such institutions as military bases, federal prisons and veterans' administration hospitals. An important feature of the Prime Vendor contracts is the federal government's goal of fostering small business enterprises and especially, small disadvantaged businesses. Prime Vendors gain an advantage in the bidding process by pledging to purchase a percentage of the total contract from small disadvantaged businesses.
Another advantage that Six Points experiences is that we are a Small Disadvantaged Business due to Mr. Woolf's status as a Native American. He is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of Eagle Butte, South Dakota. Whereas, a minority status does not guarantee any business, it is very helpful in opening doors. But at the end of the day, quality products at competitive prices are our goal. Our success and longevity as a Company has enabled us to establish an organization to act as a fundraiser for a foundation to provide support for the Cheyenne River Youth Project which is in Eagle Butte, SD.
