Dining Alliance Announces Strategic Partnership with Southeastern Paper Group

WALTHAM, Mass. — Dining Alliance, the nation’s largest Group Purchasing Organization for independent restaurants, today announced an enhanced partnership with Southeastern Paper Group, a third-generation family and veteran-owned business headquartered in Spartanburg, SC. Dining Alliance will offer CashBack rebates on 165,000 contracted items to SEPG’s customers. SEPG provides food service supplies, facility maintenance solutions, and industrial packaging products across seven states throughout the southeastern United States.

“This represents a huge opportunity for SEPG’s valued customers to earn rebates on not only the paper and disposables products that they get from SEPG, but on all of the items they purchase from all of their vendors,” said Ben Westmoreland, Director of Sales at Southeastern Paper Group. “These are troubling times for restaurants,” Westmoreland added, “and it’s important to us that we do as much as we can to help our valued customers succeed.” 

“These partnerships allow Dining Alliance to extend our reach and fulfill our mission of helping independent restaurants succeed,” says Dining Alliance President, Tina Davie Donahue.  “Paper and disposables are playing an increasingly important role as restaurants earn more of their revenue through off-premise dining. We view this as a crucial area to offer savings to our members.”
