With the help of the Dining Alliance, we will be saving money on purchases we already make for our restaurants. Their organization not only negotiates contracts on our behalf but audits the vendors to make sure they are in compliance. This will mean thousands of dollars in savings for us.
In these trying times for the foodservice industry, and the economy as a whole, it has been a pleasure to be associated with such a dedicated group of individuals that make up the Dining Alliance. Since becoming a member in the Boston area we, as a company (Eight Restaurants), have made savings in the tens of thousands of dollars and continue to make savings on a daily basis. The Dining Alliance works tirelessly to get the independent restaurateur the best possible pricing across the multitude of products we all need to remain competitive in these tough economic times and beyond. By banding together the independent restaurateurs of America will have a voice that can be more powerful than the chains
and receive competitive pricing that we can pass on to our customers.
When you try to compete with all of the chains coming into the market place, whatever you can do to strengthen your position along with everybody else in that area, you do.
Because of the number of people that Dining Alliance brings together, you get more security within that structure.
The Dining Alliance purchasing programs offer me well over 0,000 dollars in savings per year
and the peace of mind knowing that I am on contract prices and my sales representatives have no control over my prices.
Dining Alliance offers a wonderful opportunity for the independent restaurateur to receive some of the same purchasing deals that the large chains enjoy everyday. When we join together, our combined purchases equal significant buying power! I can’t think of a reason that any independent restaurant would not want to become part of Dining Alliance.
I was proud to be the first Pennsylvania member and hope and expect that the success Dining Alliance has enjoyed in New York State will be duplicated throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
