Food Cost Reduction Program

Food Purchasing Power

We leverage our members’ combined food purchasing power to negotiate exclusively discounted pricing nationwide. 

Specialized Service

We serve greek chapters, student housing, camps, food service & property management companies, and more.

Hassle Free Guarantee

We work with your distributor to help streamline service and remove burden. At no cost to your organization.

Learn How To Leverage Combined Food Purchasing

We focus our efforts on leveraging the combined food purchasing to secure savings on food orders for local chapter houses and national organizations, while simultaneously adding value to streamline all service-related processes through your food distributor.

Our added value is offered to you at no cost and provided whenever and wherever the need arises —referring chefs, running cost comparisons for purchases, and working directly with distributor representatives. All in all, this makes managing food purchases and processes much simpler and more cost-effective for our partners.

What Makes Us Unique?

Savings and services you can’t get anywhere else.

It may surprise you to learn we are the only organization in the nation that does what we do. We take enormous pride in the relationships that we have developed over the years with food distributors.

Our members are treated as a national account in the eyes of the food distributor. Think of us like an older brother. If you need a sounding board, we’re here for you.

You can call us any time and talk to an actual person who fully understands your business – get real ideas, real solutions, really fast.

Our Experience

We help more than 80 campuses and camps in 48 states. We are passionate about helping local chapter houses and organizations — that’s why we offer all our services entirely free of charge to our members.

“We were very lucky to have found Culinary Consultants. The buying power that they organized just for our benefit has not only saved us money but also given us a single point of contact for any issues we have with our food distributor. The first month alone I was able to save $2,697 without changing anything about how I operate my food program.” 

Joy Barker, Housemom, FarmHouse Fraternity, University of Kentucky

“The food cost savings of CC has had a significant positive impact on our budget, allowing us to provide better amenities for our members. I would not hesitate to recommend Culinary Consultants to all other Alpha Phi chapters (and, in fact, did so at our recent South Central Regional Conference) or to other sororities or fraternities.”

Our Story

Chef-Founded, Chef-Led

President & Owner Brian Heider is a culinary school graduate and trained Chef. He transitioned from the restaurant industry to working with unique organizations in order to help them find Chefs and consult within their food programs. His goal was to combat the pricing model that food distributors often use to take advantage of organizations that might be at a disadvantage, due to the size of their food purchases. 

Brian made it his mission and passion for the past 20 years to develop relationships with food distributors in order to help make a difference in niche food industries that simply needed the best pricing possible, while never having to worry about the idiosyncrasies of trucking and food distribution companies nationwide.

Our Approach

We are passionate about helping. Our primary focus is simply to bring savings and added service value to you so that your organization can grow. The more you grow, the more we all do!
