Restaurant Depot

I just joined RD. There's one location about 8 miles from me that I will be frequenting. Membership is free but you must be a business owner (any type business) to join.
Anyone else here a member?

My bf's catering company uses RD for a lot! They love it, and the deals are pretty good. They really like the cost on the foil pans for holding food.

Yeah, their prices are significantly lower than Costco or Sam's for all food related products, especially meat.

I'm not a member yet, but have been in the local one looking around. Like Costco, but just food and food service related items.

i've been wanting to go. my wife has befriended the woman that runs the health food / herballife shake stand at her gym, and she offered to let us use her membership to go there.

our cub scout pack buys a lot of the food we eat on camping trips at rest. depot.

Hmmm. Place seems intriguing, I would like to go someday soon.

Is it cheap to become a member?
