How it Works

Your master supplier of local goods

Cureate Connect - How it Works
How it Works - Buyers


You recognize your customer preferences are changing, and people are demanding more healthy, fresh, and locally-sourced products. You understand the importance of supplier diversity and tracking your economic impact through your purchasing power.

Cureate Connect supports:

  • Foodservice accounts at Hospitals and Medical Systems, Universities, Convention Centers, Sports Arenas, Corporate Cafeterias, Hotels, Event Planners/Concierge, and more!
  • Ongoing order fulfillment for foodservice and retail spaces, unique product opportunities through RFP/proposal processes, single transactions for cureated events and meetings.
  • Manage only one contract, and receive only once invoice, for all orders placed — rather than onboarding each vendor individually and paying each separately.

My company's reach has expanded significantly. Being a smaller, independent entrepreneur, most of my marketing used to be word of mouth. But in linking arms with a business like Cureate, "It really helped to grow our business because we were able to reach so many more people than we would have on our own."
