Our Origin Story

We have a lifelong obsession with the power of data.

Our story starts in 1998 with 45 independent restaurants in Rochester, NY.  We grouped those restaurants together and helped them reduce their Pepsi costs.

We moved operations to Boston, where we built our first “hub city.”  Restaurants throughout greater Boston benefited from our extensive network of distributor and manufacturer partnerships.

Our network spread like crazy — as networks do. By 2012, we had operators in all 50 states buying on our GPO contracts and taking advantage of our data and expertise.

Buyers Edge Platform stood out in the world of group purchasing — offering unprecedented data visibility, purchasing transparency, and marketing opportunities. The biggest — and smartest — suppliers in foodservice took notice and lined up to establish partnerships.

We leaned hard into our technology to establish our advantage in the market. We built and acquired the best software in the industry to help our clients and partners access the data and insights they need to boost their profitability.
