What began with a promise of substantial cost savings from our buying group model has evolved into a solid bond of trust with our network of customers, suppliers and partners. The hospitality community has come to value and rely on our experience, integrity and transparency as procurement consultants.
Here are a few case studies and testimonials that describe how we always go the extra mile to put our customer’s success first.
Our food vendor proactively looks for new products that are added to the program in order to maximize our rebates.

Source1 Purchasing has been an advocate for helping our growing franchise chain have a competitive advantage in the market through the discounted pricing and rebates. These are earned through the national agreements handled by Source1 Purchasing. As costs continue to rise, having Source1 Purchasing as our purchasing group allows us to offer our new franchisees savings from day one.

Source1 has been the most important relationship we have as a business. They have dramatically improved our financial profitability through their food program, but more importantly they are changing the way we operate to make ordering consistent across all of our properties. Lauren, our account manager, has been exceptionally eager to make sure we are not missing any of the benefits of partnering with Source1. I am so glad that someone cares for purchasing and the supply chain of all my hotels as much as I do. Thanks Lauren and Source1!

We enrolled in Source1 Purchasing close to a year ago. In this short time, we realized exceptional savings on food purchases and were rewarded with significant manufacturer rebates. As a result of our partnership, we streamlined our procurement processes across business locations.

Your leadership & relationship skills with the group and your quick & complete follow up has saved them thousands of dollars. The time you invested over the last year was critical in transitioning our relationship, which was a valued food distributor into a trusted business partner.

Hojeij Branded Foods (HBF) joined the Source1 Purchasing Program over two years ago. Immediately we saw that the same exceptional quality products our customers demand were available…with some meaningful savings. We also found we had a trusted advisor in our account representative. It goes without saying, I’m a believer in the Source1 Purchasing Program.

It's not just about saving money. For our catering company, it's about a relationship that cares about our business. We signed up with Source1 Purchasing over a year ago and saw the savings immediately. Using the same food quality our clients demand…just for less. This week, we worked with our account representative and discovered a supplier on the Source1 Purchasing Program that will trim another $7,000 off the bottom line annually. As a small company, we're excited about the ways we can use the savings to grow our business.
Owner – Red Rock Catering
Our Source1 Purchasing team guided us as we enrolled in their program to ensure we were getting the most out of the program. We were impressed to learn that Source1 Purchasing has solutions for every area of our business. In the early discussions, our focus was on containing runaway food and beverage costs. Today, Source1 Purchasing has offered solutions in cleaning, smallwares, even our mat program…always find the best solution for our business. We couldn't be happier. Great solutions. Great service.

The Source1 Purchasing program has been exceptional. We've received keen insights from their team with rich experience in operations. The result? A shift in products and dramatic increase in efficiency. While the expertise is indeed valued, our team has been impressed with a highly supportive and dedicated team of Customer Relations professionals. At the end of the day, the Culinary Institute is more than pleased with the Source1 Purchasing Program that ultimately benefits our students the most. Like any business, they work with budgets. With the Source1 Purchasing Program, students can afford to consider creative solutions.

With regards to Abbyland Truck Stop—since January 1, we are up $75,000 in Sales. This brings our Year to Date (our year ended on June 28) to an increase of $126,000. Per Stop Sales are up $1197 for the Fiscal Year just ended. Source1 Purchasing was extremely helpful in us gaining this business away from 2 other competitors. Thank you and your team. I know the account has spoken with Sharon several times about other Vendors on the Program as well.
