Restaurant Operator's Cooperative Owners Managers Buying Program

Restaurant Operators Cooperative was formed in 1992 to provide independent restaurant operators with competitive supply prices to level the playing field with the growing number of national chains. The group has since built an organization with over 220 members and over 40 million dollars in annual purchasing power. This has enabled ROC to secure advantageous money saving agreements with suppliers of most items needed for any restaurateur.

WHAT IS ROC?

 

We are Restaurant Operators Cooperative. A food purchasing group started in 1992 with the sole purpose of saving the independent restaurant operator. We recognized many years ago that in order to compete with the ever growing number of chain restaurants we had to devise a way for independent restaurant operators to pool their purchasing power. By leveraging our combined purchases we have been able to negotiate national account pricing with manufactures, brokers and vendors.  Lower food costs and higher profit margins for our members is the primary way we achieve our goal of saving the independent restaurant operator.

 

ROC also has many other cost savings programs with non-food and beverage vendors that restaurants use.  We have contracts with credit card vendors, linen and uniform supply companies, paper products, dishwashing chemicals, janitorial supply, workers compensation and property insurance, kitchen equipment, marketing, and many, many more.

 

Because we have a wide spectrum of programs and often multiple vendors within overlapping categories our diverse membership can easily achieve savings without sacrificing their unique identities.

 

The more programs you take advantage of the more money you can save on the things you already buy and use. Support of our programs also leads to greater negotiating power and even more savings for everyone.
