Welcome to the Center for Indirect Purchasing

If you are a Long John Silver’s Owner, Employee, Operator, Franchisee or Manager, you’re in the right place!

If you’d like to lower the cost of running your restaurants, we can help.

To get started, email us a few current contracts and invoices. We will compare what the same (or better) items & services would cost on our contracts. It’s fast, free and easy.

Most franchisees save 10–40% on their current pricing! That’s $14,000 per year, per location in potential savings if you use all of our programs!

Save across 20+ savings categories

Real-Life Savings Examples

Waste Not...

A 23-unit franchise business saved $35,549 per year — $1545 per store! — off of their previous waste & recycling services bill just by having our Waste vendor review invoices & bid on their behalf. What a waste it had been (pun intended) if they’d kept their previous contract.

The Little Things Add Up

A Long John Silver’s owner with 12 restaurants regularly purchases 20 popular office and break room items (register tape, binders, notepads etc.). Using our Office Supply discount, he saved 42% – that’s $230 per location or about $3000 — just on small necessities!

Don't Over Pay for Energy

We recently bid the gas and electric bills of an LJS restaurant group with 15 locations. The savings came out to $5,300 on gas and $19,300 for electric. What would you do with an extra $24,600 per year?

ERC Tax Credits

LJS’s partner, EF Cost Recovery, specializes in tax credits and niche cost recovery services. They were one of the first firms to offer ERC services and have processed over $600 million in ERC claims — including $6 million for LJS operators!

Our Process

  • 1. Think about what invoices you should review

    Our most popular categories are Energy, Waste Management and Facilities Maintenance, but we have 20+ others to choose from!

  • 2. Send us current invoices + contracts

    Email, snail-mail or carrier pigeon – in less than 48 hours we’ll be ready to discuss your savings potential.

  • 3. We compare your price with our contract pricing

    We review the info you send us and compare the same items and services from our vendor contracts – sometimes, we’re even using the same vendors but getting a better price.

  • 4. Review the results

    Now that you can compare apples to apples, review our findings (we can walk you through them on a quick call) and decide if you’d like to switch to our contracts.

  • 5. If you decide to change...

    Our team can help you cancel your current contracts and enroll in the new ones with better pricing / service. If not, then at least you know where your pricing stands compared to other LJS locations.

  • 6. Enjoy lower bills

    New pricing is implemented and you’re ready to sit back and enjoy your lower expenses. Check back often because we are always adding new discounts! The more programs you implement, the more you save.
