Buyers Edge Platform, a digital procurement network for the food service industry, has acquired portions of RestaurantLink, specifically its group purchasing and beverage consulting divisions and related customers and contracts. With the acquisition of RestaurantLink’s GPO contracts and members, Buyers Edge Platform expands its national GPO footprint geographically and adds new restaurant members to its group purchasing ranks.
John Davie, Buyers Edge Platform CEO said, “RestaurantLink is a perfect fit for Buyers Edge Platform because they are known for providing advantageous cost savings for restaurants. Now RestaurantLink clients will be able to access the manufacturer contracts, technology, and supply chain opportunities that make Buyers Edge Platform the only end to end Digital Procurement Network in the foodservice marketplace.”
GPO services provided by RestaurantLink will now be fully managed by Buyers Edge Platform and back office services such as accounting, payroll, and HR, which were formally offered by RestaurantLink, have been re-branded as Proairus.
