What can Kitchify do for me?
Kitchify is an online tool for restaurants, hotels, hospitals, campuses, or anybody that orders food, beverages, or paper and disposable items for their business to easily compare prices between all of their available vendors. Kitchify also simplifies the process of searching for new products that they may want to purchase for their business.
We look at it like this, if you’re searching for an airline flight, hotel room, or even looking at purchasing a car, you have easy access to websites that show you all of your available options and their prices. This creates competition for your business. Why is there not an affordable application for your restaurant kitchen or business to do the same thing? Kitchify solves that problem and is incredibly easy to use as Kitchify was designed by restaurant professionals for restaurant professionals.
How does Kitchify work?
We build your first order guide for you in the same order as your current in-house order guide with the exact products you currently buy. Kitchify will automatically display a “$” next to all products where vendors are offering you a better price. You may be surprised at how many products you have been paying more for than a competing vendor. Each time you substitute a product with a more competitive price you are saving money and taking control of your purchasing decisions.
No. We will not allow vendor's to see each other's pricing. Vendor's will, however, be able to see category and product purchases they are currently not getting from your business, allowing them to become more competitive with their pricing if they want your business.
Kitchify is currently fully operational across all desktop and laptop computers, tablets, mobile devices, and browsers.
Kitchify works for any vendor nationwide that either has online ordering OR emails you with spreadsheet pricing.
No. You are in complete control to purchase from any vendor connected to your account. We make it easy so see who has the best prices for the products on your order guide, but it’s entirely up to you who you choose to order from.
Kitchify does not collect payments for vendors. You will pay your vendors the same way that you currently do.
Under Reports, you will be able to easily pull up any orders that have been placed and either export them to Excel or into a PDF for an easily printed version for your use.
The portion of the order that was intended for each vendor will get emailed straight to your sales representative with each vendor. Sales representatives have the option to have multiple recipients of the orders as well as SMS text alerts each time they receive an order.
When clicking the search magnifying glass and entering the product you are looking for, once the product you want has been found simply click the button to add the product to your order guide. Drag and drop the product to where you would like it to be on your order guide or double click the product to directly place it in the desired section of your order guide.

To the right of every product on your order guide you will see a checkmark if there are comparable products available that are not a better price than the item that is currently on your order guide. You can click the checkmark to view these products. If there is a comparable product that is a better price than the item currently on your order guide, the checkmark is replaced with a green '$' symbol. Clicking the '$' symbol will show you all of the comparable products in addition to the one that is a better price.
Yes. Click on the 'i' symbol next to each product to pull up additional product details and a graph of that product's pricing over time.

Kitchify breaks down the prices to the smallest price per unit to compare them.
