Dine Market connects restaurants with food suppliers in the cloud. Its online service allows restaurants big and small to compare prices and order food supplies from more than 100 vendors. It’s a one-stop shopping approach, where both A-listers, such as Mr. Boulud, as well as restaurant start-ups can buy everything from lemons to flour and find the lowest prices. By streamlining the buying process, tracking orders and finding the best prices for items, the app can cut restaurant costs 7 to 15 percent on average, said Guy Praisler, Dine Market’s co-founder.
“I realized there could be an opportunity industrywide,” he said. So, he hired Chef Driven’s purchasing director, Mr. Dror, as well as a programming friend, Gabriel Rusu, and the three built out Mr. Praisler’s concept.
