We are advocates on behalf of restaurants out there to better research and understand the options available to them!


We love this role because we can work with any restaurant buying group and there's no cost to you.


This information needed to be online to help restaurants compare and contrast the quickly changing and new world of GPO's available to them.

You'll get the same process, ordering simplicity, rates, etc.


We work with select restaurant buying groups who have proven their mettle.


This needs to be a proven thing for restaurants to use.


Here are our primary considerations.

What we look for in restaurant buying groups


  • Partnered Food Distributor strength
  • Strength
  • Breadth of product
  • Ordering ease
  • Delivery process and timeliness
  • Expected Savings
  • Enrollment speed and support


Let's look at each of these with more detail.


Partnered Food Distributor and GPO.


What's the point of saving money if there are issues with the underlying distributor.


The Buying Group is really just pooled purchasing strength.


You can find out more how restaurant GPO's work here.


Ultimately, your day to day process is still with a food distributor.


For that reason, what we really want to look at the PARTNER of the buying group.


That's why we're very much impressed by Leverage Buying Group due to their relationship with a top 2 US Supplier.


LVG's supplier is a dominant force in food distribution and having access to all they offer is awesome!


Getting this option at a discounted pricing through a restaurant buying group is a no brainer!


You can run your quote to see expected savings here:



What else is considered by us?

How about breadth of product line and quality?

Breadth of food products available through GPO


We next consider what you actually source through the GPO.


This again rests on the partnered food distributor.


Another big win for Leveraged Buying Group but all the big GPO's have a lot to offer here.


Rather than just get savings on select items, our favorite GPO's allow you to save on everything!


It's pretty amazing what the big distributors can offer these days.


Everything under the sun for core food and supply purchases.


Just send over a sample invoice and let us quote it for you.

Food or supplies.

Ordering Ease for Food Supplies


It's got to be easy!


You're busy trying to build your restaurant brand and reputation not to mention that little bit about running the business!


Ordering (online or off) needs to be intuitive, fast, and well...




The major food distributors have amazing tools in this regard and the restaurant buying groups do not affect this in any way.


You'll have access to their direct account management systems!


No extra cost to you.


You'll just pay less to access their full suite of available tools.


Don't worry...there's still old school processing for old school players!

We consider delivery process and ease


On the flipside, after ordering, delivery needs to expected!

  • On time
  • Correct
  • Flexible


This is really the strength of the major food distributors that we have access to through GPO's.


To some extent, they are logistics companies as much as anything else.

Their core competency is processing deliveries fast, effectively, and correctly.


We have no problems here and nor will you.


We really analyze this piece in determining which restaurant buying groups to consider so you won't have to!

We consider expected savings from the restaurant buying groups


Let's be honest...

Shipping, ordering ease, and the like are all real important.

We look at enrollment speed and ease're busy!


How hard is this going to be to set up?

Not hard at all.


Once restaurants get over the shock of how much they're going to save, enrollment is pretty easy.


We're not kidding on the shock part.


Many restaurant owners are in disbelief at first.


They think there must be a catch.

Welcome to the world of pooled purchasing.


Now you know why the bigger chains can advertise so much!


Every other commercial is food base!


Use the savings to:

  • Upgrade food quality level
  • Improve bottom line
