We all compete with chains.
As an independent food service operator, you’re not just competing with restaurant chains down the street – you’re also up against their army of professional purchasers, marketers, and negotiators.
Truth be told, most independent foodservice operators fail because higher purchasing and operating costs reduce margins to the point where owners struggle to pay the bills.
UNIPCO is a 100% member-owned group of Canadian independent foodservice operators, with the purchasing power to level the playing field with national chains. In addition, UNIPCO is a Zero Retained Earnings organization, meaning that all UNIPCO members share in the profits.
