Welcome to the United Purchasing Company

The United Purchasing Company (UPC) is an organization of independent, family-style restaurants that have banded together to gain the advantage of collective buying to achieve better pricing in products and services in this very competitive market.

Starting with five member restaurants in 1988, the membership has grown to over 450, covering Northwest Indiana, Southeast Wisconsin, and Northern Illinois.

UPC's management strongly believes in the quality of the membership rather than rapid growth, and for that reason has not continually solicited new members. Instead it has grown through referrals and requests.

Recognized as a National chain Account, we have negotiated programs for nationally recognized, brand name products with manufacturers, distributors, and service companies and so have provided substantial savings for our members.

Our ability to bring together manufacturers, distributors and end users has created a favorable and profitable business climate for everyone concerned.

The ability of UPC to introduce a given product or company in this market and its reputation as an organization which maintains the highest business standards is recognized and respected throughout the foodservice industry.
