Before you open a restaurant, you must determine the suppliers and establish supplies. The main requirement for suppliers is the timely delivery of quality and fresh products. Please note that all products must meet the requirements of GOST and had quality certificates.
To calculate how much product you need to purchase, you need a flow chart and a sales forecast. Of course, you won't deduce the exact indicator, but in the process of work you yourself will determine the optimal purchase volume.
Take your time to conclude a contract and arrange the delivery of products. First, carefully study the various cooking technologies, offers from different suppliers, etc.
The list of necessary products for the purchase is individual for each institution. But there are categories of suppliers with which every restaurateur collaborates:
Of course, it's easier to work with a comprehensive set of suppliers that can supply you with all the necessary products. Such suppliers offer a flexible system of discounts, guarantee fast deliveries and, in general, simplify the restaurateur's life, eliminating unnecessary paperwork. But in Russia, finding a reliable integrated supplier is not so simple. An integrated supplier is less flexible and loyal to its customers. He cannot adapt to the different requirements of all his clients, and in this he loses to small suppliers.
The main plus of small suppliers who supply certain products is that they are ready to take into account the needs of each client and work with him individually. Usually, small companies monitor the quality of the goods more seriously and are well versed in them. And also individual suppliers have more choice of products.
Which supplier to choose - integrated or a few small ones - is up to you. But before making a final decision on cooperation, conduct an analysis of the proposals. Make the first purchase small, order small lots from different suppliers to compare quality and choose the most suitable option. In the future, make purchases often, but in small batches. This will provide your establishment with fresh products and simplify their storage.
When signing a contract with suppliers, be sure to read all the conditions specified in the documents. For example, transportation costs are usually borne by the customer, that is, you. Therefore, if possible, choose those suppliers that are closer to your establishment. So you reduce shipping costs. Also, note what kind of warranty the supplier provides. Discuss what responsibility the parties incur if delivery, payment, or product quality are violated.
