Who Would Benefit from a WebstaurantPlus Subscription?
A WebstaurantPlus subscription is beneficial for most foodservice establishments, especially restaurants that order their equipment and disposables online. This service is also ideal for the following types of establishments:
- Businesses that use the auto reorder tool. If you're ordering regularly from WebstaurantStore, a Plus membership is essential, so you can maximize your savings. Use the WebstaurantStore app to make reordering your favorite Plus-eligible items even quicker.
- Restaurants that are constantly running out of disposables. Rather than sending one of your employees off to the grocery store to pick up more napkins, straws, or paper plates and paying a premium, you can order wholesale options on WebstaurantStore with Plus. Then you can sit back and relax knowing that your order will get priority processing and free shipping.
- New restaurants that have to order lots of equipment and supplies to stock their kitchen. Purchasing lots of equipment for your new business can lead to a lot of upfront costs, but a WebstaurantPlus membership can help cut costs.
- Establishments that need their order to arrive quickly. If one of your appliances breaks during the week and you need a replacement, a WebstaurantPlus subscription ensures priority processing so your business can continue flourishing as quickly as possible.
Praise for WebstaurantPlus from Customers
But, don't just take our word for it! Read what several WebstaurantPlus members have to say about the service.
MJ Stone is the co-owner of Agora Downtown Coffee Shop in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and has benefitted from her WebstaurantPlus subscription. She said, "In addition to not being able to find another place that beats the prices that Webstaurant has, it's wonderful not having to worry about shipping on top of that."
John Serock, the owner of John Serock Catering expressed a similar statement: "So many of the items that we purchase are part of the Plus program that we've moved over products from other suppliers because of the savings in the shipping." He also added that, "At $99 a month, it paid for itself literally in the first week that we had it."
In addition to the cost savings, WebstaurantPlus members benefit from our expedited shipping, so you get your orders faster. The Director of Kitchen Operations for Barley Creek Brewing Company, Bobby Fluegel, said, "Favorite thing from WebstaurantStore is probably the fact that once I purchase something, I know it's going to be here in a few days."
