Joe and Janet Tegtmeier have been the principal operators of Buy Right since 2003. They have over 45 years of combined experience in Restaurant and Retail Food Service. They've covered a lot of ground in the field: cooking & food prep; baking; serving; festival organization; merchandising; wholesale distribution; restaurant operations; small business and employee management; and of course, purchasing.
Their success is founded on a wide range of partnerships, from local producers to national distributors. They understand that independent operators need a variety of sources from which to find just what they want to maintain their unique style; yet they also need the buying power of a large operation to compete in a tough industry. Buy Right negotiates with several vendors and distributors to achieve the same benefits that national chains enjoy; our members reap those benefits through significant cost savings.
