Wholesale and restaurant food suppliers in Utah

Restaurant food supply, cash and carry, whole sale distributors – whatever you call it – your restaurant relies on bulk supply of core ingredients. After all, you really don’t have the time or sanity to be fighting amongst the Costco aisles with everyone else. Right?

The following companies all operate in the state of Utah. Each of the businesses will help take the fuss, effort and time out of stocking your restaurant pantry – and delivery right to your restaurant. Some of the following businesses will help you with scheduled food deliveries, some work as on demand suppliers – when you need an ingredient in a pinch. Speaking of which…

The Chef Market

Chef Market is an on-demand wholesale delivery service for restaurants, bars, caterers, cafeterias, golf courses and other food businesses in Salt Lake County. Restaurants can sign-up in minutes, order the products they need, and in just a few hours Chef Market will deliver them right to their kitchen.

As a former partner at the Pago Restaurant Group, Wendy Evans, founder of Chef Market, saw first-hand how challenging it was for chefs to fill last-minute needs and how much time owners and restaurant staff were spending driving around and shopping for those extra items to get through service. That challenge is even greater now with staffing shortages across the foodservice industry and Chef Market hopes to be an extra resource for restaurants when they need it.

Restaurants are stretched thin, and Chef Market wants to make it easy for chefs to fill last minute needs. Chef Market is built exclusively for foodservice, including favorites lists for easy repeat purchases, low minimum orders, tax-exempt options, multiple wholesale stores and suppliers in one place, credit card payments, no contracts or commitments, and flat delivery fee of $3.99.

Chef Market delivers across the Salt Lake Valley, from downtown SLC to Draper/Herriman. Restaurants can visit www.thechefmarket.com and start ordering in minutes.
