Horizon Buying Group is a business support solution for Foodservice Equipment & Supply Dealers. We leverage the combined buying power of our Members with our Manufacturer Partners to negotiate favorable pricing, rebates, and terms that create mutually beneficial programs – increasing margins and growing market share. We believe this mutually beneficial approach is a true win-win that is not only good for our Members and Partners, but for the industry as a whole. If you like the way that sounds, please contact us to discuss membership. In the meantime, here are answers to some common questions.
What is the cost to join?
There is never a membership fee, for our dealers or our manufacturers.
Who can join?
Foodservice Equipment & Supply dealers in the U.S. who have a physical location, and have been in business for more than three years are welcome to complete an application.
What kind of discounts can I expect?
Discounts vary by each manufacturer. However, they are generally more favorable than those available to dealers who are not in a buying group.
Do you pay rebates?
HBG pays 100% quarterly rebates to qualified dealer members.
Do you do Central Procurement or Direct Pay?
HBG operates as a Direct Pay model. You submit your POs directly with the manufacturers which allow you to keep you identity/relationship with the manufacturer and retain control of your money.
Do you have dealer territories?
While we do not have strict territories, we do work with our members to ensure that they retain their regional advantage as we continue to grow our roster.
Do you have international members?
At this time, HBG does not have the infrastructure to accommodate international businesses.
