The Hospitality Business Alliance was founded on the belief that the independent restaurant and hospitality operators in our communities make up a rich piece of the fabric and substance of our lives. From coffee shops to cocktail lounges and pizza parlors to fine dining establishments, hospitality environments provide a backdrop for all manner of social and business interaction. What’s more, the experiences we have at these unique locations are the ones that impact us most greatly and last in our memory; unlike those played out in “chains” or the cookie-cutter settings of corporate stores.
We also recognize, ironically, that these independent operators providing so much more depth to our experiences have a strikingly shallow pool of resources from which to draw and very little attention paid to their needs – rather, it seems that the best resources historically are available to those who join the rank and file of the corporate machine. That needs to change – and we at the HBA intend to be the agents of that transformation: through the true alignment of incentives.
Our expressed mission and purpose is to foster a culture of respect and cooperation between hospitality businesses and their supplier and partners. Furthermore, the Alliance has been formed with a goal of providing tangible business benefits to all members that could not otherwise be created without a mechanism for fair and equitable exchange of value between the parties.
Just like there are two sides to every coin, there are two different audiences that the HBA serves – and two distinctly different value propositions:
The HBA focuses on three primary benefits for our membership:
The Hospitality Business Alliance is a membership-based organization that collects dues from its members for providing products and services that help enhance their businesses and get the most out of the relationships with suppliers and partners.
