How it Works

Our Cureators source and vet local food & beverage entrepreneurs

We'll connect you with emerging and established food and beverage businesses in your area that align with your business goals. From consumer packaged goods, to caterers and dessert-providers - we've got it all.

Sourced and vetted Food & Beverage Entrepreneurs
Upload RFPs to be matched directly with qualified vendors.

Add a request - we'll do the matchmaking!

We make it as easy as possible for you to find the right vendors for your new business opportunities. With our Request functionality, tell us about your procurement needs and budget — we will do the rest! Our team is on hand to deliver the best options for your target audience.

  • "Our shop would like to integrate local snacks and sweets at our Point of Purchase. Our max wholesale price point is $3/unit, tell us your offer!"
  • "Looking for locally-made desserts for our upcoming event. 100 people, less than $5 per person. See attached invite for colors/theme, and send us your proposal ..."
  • "750 sq ft to activate on game days. We’d love a local business to take over the space and pop-up on site. Open to revenue share or per diem rate. Share your concept!"

Cureating values-based supply chains

Cureate Connect makes valuable connections

Cureate (read 'cure-ate') takes a socially-conscious, market-based approach to developing local procurement programs that better serve our communities. Together we create change and #shiftthedollar back into our local communities, which we track and report through ongoing impact assessments.

One contact, hundreds of businesses

Cureate is a single point of contact that provides a gateway to hundreds of local businesses through Cureate Connect, our proprietary procurement platform. As the prime contract holder, we ensure a smooth purchasing process so you can focus on the other aspects of your business. This means our Buyer partners only have to place orders and pay one account (us!) while having access to a robust small business Vendor network.
