SIB Development & Consulting, a company that helps businesses save money on their recurring expenses, today announced it will join with Dining Alliance, one of the oldest foodservice purchasing organizations in the United States, to save restaurants money on their regular monthly bills.

Dining Alliance, and its subsidiary Consolidated Concepts, combines the purchasing power of more than 13,000 customers to ensure the lowest possible food prices and highest possible manufacturer rebates. The new alliance with SIB Development and Consulting will make it possible for those 13,000 customers to save money on their regular recurring monthly expenses as well.

SIB helps restaurants save money by negotiating better contracts for recurring monthly service expenses (phone, Internet, garbage, utilities, hardware and software maintenance contracts, and others), and by finding and correcting errors and overcharges on past monthly bills. SIB's clients only pay after they have realized actual monthly savings.

"Restaurant owners -- especially multi-unit operations -- do not have the time or in-house expertise to find billing errors and to understand the best prices and plans available for their monthly services," says SIB Founder Dan Schneider. "Not only can we help find and correct complex billing errors, we can benchmark what businesses are paying with what we know are the best available rates and plans on the market. We have a 98% success rate. And we are thrilled to be able to work with Dining Alliance to help their customers realize significant savings."

"This really is a perfect fit," said Dining Alliance President John Davie. "Combining our purchasing power and expertise on the food-buying side with SIB's knowledge and skill on the fixed monthly costs side is a one-two punch that will help thousands of restaurants save millions."
