What We Do
Buy Right Purchasing functions as a purchasing agent focusing on independent restaurants. Through development of strong contracts with vendors, Buy Right obtains national account pricing for its members based on the group's collective purchasing power.
Buy Right performs three main functions:
- We negotiate agreements with vendors and service providers at set margins, mark-ups or prices, allowing members to achieve savings that are locked in (contract terms vary among vendors).
- We audit those agreements to ensure that the terms are being met. Formal audits are conducted twice a year; we may also audit any vendor at any time, for any reason.
- We negotiate allowance or rebate programs with manufacturers. On a quarterly basis, we process and collect those rebate dollars and distribute them back to our members accordingly. Most of the rebates we earn would not be offered to individual accounts; with Buy Right, even the smallest of independently owned restaurants get the same benefits as do national chains.
Buy Right members enjoy lower prices on all their food and supplies, less hassle and more confidence in the fact that they don't have to haggle with multiple sales representatives, more time to dedicate to the success of their restaurant and community instead of searching for the "best deals", and peace of mind in having a partner who will assist them in both saving money and getting the best service from their vendors.
