Prior to our Nationwide expansion, RBG was started in Northern California. We developed relationships with local distribution and these developed partnerships have allowed certain distributors to become our “Approved Distributors.”

Food, coffee and bread distributors who understand the importance of the day to day operations of the foodservice industry is a must. Taking a personal approach to your business and it’s needs is why we have partnered with these prominent approved distributors. They care about your business and it’s success.  Providing quality products and competitive pricing have place them in very competitive place without forfeiting. Not only are their staff members knowledgeable about the products they distribute, but they can work with you to perform cuttings and sample you products that are trending in the marketplace.

Majority of our vendors have websites. By selecting their logo below, a page with additional information will appear where you can find out more about our relationship with them and a little bit about them as a company. In this window you can also reach their website directly by simply clicking on their logo again. Don’t forget to visit our Benefits page to see what other offerings RBG has available.

There’s been so much noise out there about deadlines that it’s making business owners think they’re too late to file, costing them thousands of dollars in much-needed (and deserved!) funds. With all this confusion getting in the way of the facts, we wanted to reach out today and clear the air.

Our partners at Adesso have confirmed that the filing period for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) has been extended! So many of our members were told that they were too late to get those critical funds back, but now you can!

The filing period may have been extended, but that doesn’t mean it’s forever.


Take this as a sign that it’s time to get the money you’re owed from the federal government, even if you’ve already taken PPP loan funds. The sooner you act, the faster you’ll get your tax credit.


“Okay, but how much of a tax credit are we talking about here? I’m not going to waste my time on $50.”


It depends! The way we see it, you’ve got two options:

You could DIY it today and give it a go. Most businesses are eligible for $26,000 per W-2 employee. $26k isn’t too shabby.


You could work with our partner Adesso Capital and their team of CPAs who are ERC experts. Their clients receive an average return of $150,000, 20% more than those who go at it alone or with a CPA who isn’t a specialist in the ERC.

(There’s also the third option of doing nothing at all, but why wouldn’t you give this a go? It’s money you’re already owed!)

What could your business do with a windfall of $150,000? Some of our clients have used it to:

  • Expand their location
  • Hire new employees
  • Buy more supplies
  • Launch new products

Since there are no restrictions on how the ERC can be used, the possibilities are endless.
