About Us


Like you, we’ve spent our careers in the restaurant industry. With expertise in all facets of the supply chain, our team understands the hurdles faced by mid-sized restaurant chains. We recognize the bottom line implications of limited resources, knowledge, scale, and investment dollars. Identifying these barriers, as well as strategies to work around them, is at the core of why we do what we do – and why we do it so well.

SpenDifference was created to work collaboratively with businesses like yours to help you compete with even the largest chains.

We provide the infrastructure to help our clients gain market advantages by partnering with a broader group of restaurants and leveraging a larger spend. And, unlike a Group Purchasing Organization or GPO, we do it without asking our clients to change menu specifications.  Simply put, we provide restaurant brands a competitive edge.

Our Story

Largely an employee owned organization, SpenDifference, opened its doors in Denver, Colorado in 2008. Since then our organization has grown to more than 20 clients and 35 employees. From the beginning, it was our modest goal to help emerging and mid-size restaurant chains be more competitive across the supply chain. We do all this while maintaining total transparency to our clients regarding our revenue sources.
