Member Testimonials

“Joining Leverage Buying Group has been the single best action I have taken in running our restaurants in the past 5 years. We have seen a dramatic drop in our cost of good. The best part is that there are savings in all purchases, in the past vendors would give a great price on the main ingredients only to charge an over inflated price on something less watched.”

-Scott Litteral, Owner
Il Forno Classico, Gold River


“We were skeptical at first, however, Leverage Buying Group has proven to be instrumental in reducing our COGs by a couple of percentage points. This has allowed us more liberty to add additional value to the customer experience without charging them anymore. The third party auditing of my invoices gives me the confidence I need too not look over my shoulder. Leverage is my watchdog for purchasing.”

We serve over 300 meals daily, and are proud to say that our people are well cared for and enjoy a variety of healthy food choices.”
