The bottom line is top of mind for restaurant operators; any means they can find to reduce their operating costs is welcome. With this in mind, National Restaurant Association has created Marketplace, a new program that helps members purchase key restaurant-operation products and services at member-discounted prices.
 
The Association, in partnership with vetted industry suppliers, has put together a suite of financial, health care benefit, office-supply, back-office, and cyber-insurance products and services at discounted prices. 
 
Here is a sampling of Marketplace’s current product and service offerings:
 
  •  Health care insurance: UnitedHealthcare works with us in a strategic alliance, offering exclusive health care pricing and solutions for National Restaurant Association member businesses – including small, midsize and large employers. 
  • Financing: Best-in-class business lender Credibly offers Association members a 60% discount off of the 2.5% origination fee on financing products. They also receive streamlined access to a variety of financing solutions, which are well suited for restaurant operators.
  • Payment systems: Heartland, an endorsed partner of the Association, offers Association members access to its suite of business tools, including its unified payments-processing platform – designed specifically for the restaurant industry. 
  • Office supplies: Association members receive up to 80% in discounts on Office Depot’s more than 96,000 supplies and printing on items such as menus and limited-time-offers. They also receive free shipping on all orders over $50.
  • Cyber insurance: Through 360o CoveragePros, Association members receive access to data-breach and cyber-liability insurance. This will help mitigate and minimize the devastating effects of a cyber event, while ensuring your operation remains compliant with federal and state regulations.
