What is a Foodservice Buying Group?
Why does working with a dealer that’s part of a restaurant equipment buying group matter?
As members of the Excell foodservice equipment buying group, dealers are supported and backed by a combined nationwide network of 306 foodservice equipment dealers and suppliers. Our members share one goal: to provide solutions and service operators’ needs. A partnership with an Excell foodservice equipment dealer guarantees operators connect to a local expert who keeps abreast of changing technology, is skilled in providing personalized product recommendations, unparalleled service, and always puts operators’ needs first.
Our restaurant purchasing group members bring credibility to operator’s businesses by increasing positive perception among consumers and elevating visibility in the industry.
