ProBuy Procurement Services Does What the Big Boys do…
Companies such as ClubCorp®, Troon Golf®, Billy Casper®, Arcis Golf®, and many other multi-unit club operators and management companies, all understand the value of a procurement services program.
Not too many operators actually know what “ program purchasing” really means. The market throws around the word “program” to make customers feel good. Telling a customer that they have a “program” actually tricks them into thinking that they are saving money. In truth, they may be saving some money but it is a misleadingly small amount compared to a true program.
ProBuy offers a true “margin over cost” program. The ProBuy distributor contract is structured just like the Big Boys. Our distributor agreement covers the same products, the same categories, the same price protection as all of the major chain operators.
ProBuy does NOT do linen deals, pest control deals, or any other ancillary services like VGM ClubProcure™ or Entegra Procurement Services®. We have devoted our efforts to design a foodservice margin schedule that will bring savings for the small restaurant or Golf Club to a Medium to Large multi-unit Chain. ProBuy’s focus is to secure the lowest margins possible for various annual purchase levels within the restaurant and Golf / Private Club community. Low margins for categories such as:

We are NOT better negotiators than you:
Most operators are great negotiators. We are certainly NOT any better at negotiating than you. Imagine if you went to 20 of your neighbors and all of you agreed to pick one certain auto dealer and all agreed to buy their next vehicle from them. You can walk into the dealership and by-pass the sales team and go right into the “fleet” office. This is the place where your city, county, major employers go to buy their vehicle fleet. The fleet guy will typically offer you a straight $200-$500 over their TRUE invoice cost. Not having to pay commissions to any of the sales team makes it a no brainer for the dealer. (Plus, they still get the 2% from the factory on the back side). It is a win – win for everybody! That’s ProBuy. Request a FREE Analysis and help us help you.
We use our multi-unit clout to coordinate a pre-arranged structure where the distributor is allowed to make X% over their true landed cost (product cost + freight). Being inside this new multi-unit structure and outside the traditional games, your pricing is verified by ProBuy’s audit privileges. ProBuy is allowed to basically look at the books to verify the arrangement is being honored. With a written distributor agreement, ProBuy clients get the best prices on ALL items and EVERY invoice with no further negotiating. Simple and effective.
However, if you do not feel that you are getting a benefit, you can always go back to your old way and cancel our agreement. To date no one has done that. Why? Because ProBuy does exactly what we promise. We negotiate your new pricing as if you were a multi-unit operation. And then keep a consistent watchful eye on all invoicing to assure their negotiated costs are honored.
