What Is RBG?

RBG is a group purchasing organization (GPO) of over 300 independent operators including restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, schools, golf courses, senior living facilities, mobile food trucks and bakeries throughout the West that gives independent businesses the buying power of large chains. We work with food distributors and manufacturers creating programs to offer savings on products such as beef, poultry, pork, seafood, produce, paper, potatoes, fries, breaded and unbreaded products and so much more. 

As time has passed, the need for group purchasing organizations, also known as GPO’s, has greatly increased. As a member of Restaurant Buying Group you benefit from group purchasing without losing your independence of being a different operator. You can still create your favorite dishes the way you like, but also enjoy the benefits of purchasing power.

In addition to food and beverage, we also offer other services which include: assistance with creation of order guides, tools for tracking inventory, formulas on food cost breakdowns and menu plans. Your RBG partner will even analyze your invoices on a regular basis so there are no surprises. Lastly, we have partnered with other vendors outside of food in order locate more services and savings to you.

There are NO long-term obligations or contracts. You can leave with a 30-day notice at any time.

We are confident that once you join our group you will stay for a very long time as many of our other members have!
