Membership muscle exercised by 8,000 foodservice operators across the country.
Dining Alliance, the nation’s leading foodservice buying group, has recently reached the milestone of $1 billion in purchasing power. The effects of this are better pricing and stronger product rebates, felt by over 8,000 foodservice operators throughout the country. This success is also celebrated by the approved suppliers and manufacturers contracted with the Dining Alliance.
“This is a major milestone for our members and our contracted vendors. Our success in driving compliance to our suppliers over the past 12 years, has continued to result in more savings to our members. We continue to dedicate more resources toward saving our member’s money and driving new business to our suppliers.” says John Davie, President of Dining Alliance.
Over the past few years, the regional Dining Alliance advisory boards have been bidding agreements with many regional and national manufactures and distributors. Most notably, the following distributors have won agreements: Ben E. Keith, Shamrock Foods, AGAR Supply, Maines Paper & Foodservice, and Performance Food Group. Vendor contracts are available for a variety of other services required to operate a successful foodservice business. These contracts are voted on by a Board of Advisors made up of local, seasoned and respected operators. Each proposal is evaluated for quality, pricing and customer service. Approved suppliers benefit from adding the large volume of committed customers and their purchases.
“I‘m proud to sit on the Advisory Board for the Dallas chapter. Dining Alliance is going to be a great thing for the Dallas-Fort Worth foodservice industry. Taco Villa, Rosas Café, and Texas Burger have found the relationship to be beneficial. Our group is saving money and the vendors the group is selecting are finding new customers. A real win-win.” comments Matt Kremzar, Director of Purchasing for the 50 unit Bobby Cox Company.
