How do you find suppliers for a restaurant?
I know someone who is wanting to start a vegan restaurant. How do we find produce suppliers, and other suppliers, specifically vegan. Where do we look for the things we need to get started?
In restaurant business finding the right suplliers is one of the main milestones during the pre opening stage.
You may try finding them via your local market. You can also try asking a retailer or reseller of the products that you are looking for. However I f you have a gross market close to your area I may say this is the best option.
Finding good quality consistent product depends on where you live. Your larger food suppliers like Sysco can get any product. For a small operation it is best to go to a reputable farmer's market. The other is large speciality shops. Check Amazon, they do speciality items and good products for free shipping.
Best of success,
Well I would start out by contacting the local chapter of the national restaurant association or search their website. They have the names of all the food distributors in the area. Next check out farmer's markets.
google search for resterant supply company in your local big city.

Depending on where you live, Framers markets are the easiest way to get Farm-to-table vegan speacilities for restaurants. In this day and age, Vegan growers are everywhere and its a good way to network, in able to get the freshest ingredients. If you're in the Manhattan area, Union Square is awesome.
