What Is HSG?
  • Since 1989, HSG has been one of the most successful cooperative purchasing groups in the United States.
  • HSG provides a means for independent restaurants, inns, hotels, retirement communities, schools and other food service operators to work together to reduce the costs of the goods that they purchase.
  • We leverage the combined needs of our member clients to purchase food and non-food supplies, except alcoholic beverages, in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible.

what hsg will do for you step by step
What HSG Will Do For You: Step By Step
  • Develop Detailed Specifications
    • First, we will work hand-in-hand with you and your chef or manager to set up detailed specifications for each product needed. Together we look at use, quality, pack, volume, present source of supply and unique requirements that might affect the purchasing decision. You will make all final decisions on the specifications that are right for your operation.
  • Creation of Custom Order Forms & Systems
    • HSG creates a custom set of forms for your use, which are tailored to inventory systems and ordering procedures already used by your business.
  • Add You to Our Combined Purchasing Power
    • HSG combines the needs of all its clients for bidding purposes. We use the cumulative buying power of all of our members to negotiate the best possible prices. There is strength in numbers.
  • Locating Multiple Sources
    • Using multiple sources of supply for each item assures a competitive bidding process. We maintain a fully computerized database of product information and prices which is continually updated.
You Retain All Product Decisions
    • You continue to determine your order using the simple forms we provide, and send the order to HSG by fax or email. We then price out every order (considering only vendors that you have approved) using our computerized information,
  • Products are Orded from the Best Supplier
    • We match the best supplier with each item, and place the order.
  • Efficient Communications
    • Only after each vendor has confirmed receipt of your order and checked their stock do we fax a copy of the purchase orders to you. You will know exactly when suppliers are due to deliver, what they will bring and how much you will be paying. All orders are delivered and invoiced directly to you by the suppliers.
  • We handle the problems
    • HSG works very closely with our clients to insure complete and accurate purchasing. However, if a problem or an emergency occurs (no matter which party is responsible) HSG will follow-through to correct the situation and get you the product you need when you need it.
