Empowering Restaurants: Sessions’ Innovative Marketplace Solution

In the ever-evolving landscape of food tech, Sessions, founded by an ex-Managing Director of Deliveroo, is making waves. Their mission? To empower restaurant partners, enabling them to differentiate and grow sustainably. How? By curating a portfolio of authentic, founder-led brands with proven delivery success in a store built on BigCommerce.

The Hospitality Challenge

The hospitality sector has faced unprecedented challenges – lockdowns, rising supply chain costs, and consumer spending uncertainties. Independent restaurants and small chains grapple with balancing quality ingredients against cost pressures and frequent stock shortages from suppliers.

The Sessions Solution

Sessions teamed up with Seamlessly and Avasam to create a game-changing multi-vendor marketplace, to purchase packaging, sauces and very soon light catering equipment from Bunzl. Here’s how it benefits restaurant partners:

  • Competitive Pricing: The platform ensures competitive rates for packaging, sauces, and soon, light catering equipment.
  • Ease of Ordering: Streamlined processes make life easier for operators.
  • Attractive Bundles: Sessions’ brand launches feature high-quality, sustainable packaging, ingredients, and equipment.

The Ripple Effect

By fostering an ecosystem of technology and supplier partners, Sessions achieves economies of scale. The result? Cost savings and efficient processes that directly benefit restaurant partners. Plus, they’re committed to environmentally friendly packaging.

An Avasam Client’s Perspective

We’re always looking for ways to simplify the onboarding process for our partners and this has solved an important part of operations for us. With over 200 kitchens in our network, we needed a simple platform for operators to be able to order packaging, ingredients and equipment and we’re very happy with the solution we’ve created with Seamlessly and Avasam

– Dan Warne, CEO, Sessions

Sessions’ marketplace isn’t just about transactions—it’s about transforming the restaurant experience but the really interesting part is that they haven’t had to build it themselves – they’ve built it on the back of Avasam Enterprise which enables brands to create their own custom network of third party suppliers and dropshipping solution.
