Provista’s more than 310 national contracts and 60,000 SKUs ensure members have access to everything required to operate a successful kitchen—from food to beyond what’s served on the plate. In addition, Provista offers data and analytics solutions to help individual members choose the best food-related contracts for their business.
Members can experience wide-ranging benefits from the diverse Provista food portfolio, including access to contracts across these nine areas:
1. RAISE A TOAST TO GLASSWARE
The glassware that’s used with a meal reflects the environment for dining. For example, a fine dining setting requires much different glassware than a hotel serving a 500-person banquet. A typical hospitality or long-term care organization needs a variety of glassware for guests or residents, from coffee cups to water glasses to glassware for specialized drinks.
Contracts from Provista meet these needs with a full range of glasses for all types of beverages at different price points to meet the needs of residents in senior living facilities, diners at exclusive resorts and everyone in between.

2. SET THE MOOD WITH TABLE LINENS
Like glassware, table linens help create a mood for dining. A white tablecloth creates a different ambiance than a red-and-white checked one. “They have the power to set expectations about entrée quality and price. And they have the power to increase the comfort of your guests by reducing background noise, improving sanitary conditions and controlling spills better than bare tables,” according to Restaurant Table Linens.
Provista offers tablecloths and linens for organizations to purchase. And once members buy them, Provista has laundry service contracts to keep them clean. A vendor comes to the member’s business to pick up, clean and then return the freshly laundered linens. A single Provista member—a large hospitality organization—saved $500,000 in one year using the GPO’s contract.
