Creating food is meaningful work.

From the farmer to the chef, there is a common sense of purpose in doing work that feeds people. If you’re in the restaurant business, it’s not because it’s easy money. Chances are, you feel purpose in making people happy through food.

 

The state of things makes it harder than it should be.

Do you ever feel held back? Do you feel like you’re the only one focusing on the guest? Are you tired of being sold products that don’t fit your standards?

This happens when producers, suppliers, and restaurateurs aren’t working together with a common purpose. Instead, we look to our own interests, often at each other’s expense. The result is that fulfilling your guests’ experience falls entirely on you. Or worse, you have to fight against competing ambitions from the rest of the supply chain. The relationship is broken.

 

Re-define the relationship. Do more of what you love.

It shouldn’t be that way. The experience you create for your guest is what ultimately supports the entire supply chain. So if instead we get behind your purpose, and work towards your goal for your guests’ experience, we all benefit more. By re-defining the relationship around trust and mutual benefit, we can tailor our work to accomplish your purpose and you can focus on doing more of what you love.

How We Define Relationship


Transparency

The foundation of a trusting relationship. We pull back the curtain and give you insight about how our business model and supply chain really works so you can benefit with more informed decision-making.

Advocacy

Put simply, this means we cover your back so that you don’t have to. We help shoulder the challenges of running your restaurant and act proactively on your behalf. When you succeed, we succeed.

Relevance

We work to understand your vision for the guest’s experience, your style and values and then tailor our offering to fit them. You should never have to compromise.
