Sebastian Serra started in the produce business when he was nine years old in Boston’s Haymarket, working for his uncle every weekend. After graduating from Northeastern University, Sebastian started his own produce distribution company and worked with hundreds of restaurants throughout the Boston area, before selling the company to spend more time with his growing family.
While working with these restaurant owners and operators, Sebastian saw first hand the lack of technology and innovation in the back-of-the-house. Restaurant owners and operators would regularly complain about the hours spent trying to review the hundreds of items they purchased every week, and express frustration that they had no way to simplify and streamline this process. This experience provided the inspiration for the web-based purchasing software that Sarbari provides today to restaurants, diners, hotels, and clubs around the country.
The company name Sarbari comes from the Sicilian word which means “to save” or “conserve.”
The Sarbari Mission is very straightforward: To serve restaurant owners and foodservice operators and help them improve efficiency, increase productivity, and save time and money as a result. This is at the forefront of everything we do as a company. Every meeting, every client interaction, and every update to Sarbari solutions are shaped by our desire to help our clients’ business succeed through the use of technology.
Sarbari offers more than your typical restaurant software or vendor management software; we deliver web-based purchasing software designed to serve the restaurant and foodservice industry and address an acute business pain felt by all owners and operators: inefficient operations, decreased employee productivity, and a lack of transparency around their business operations. Sarbari’s software offers these restaurant owners and foodservice operators a secure, easy, and efficient way to organize their current supplier price lists, streamline their entire purchasing process, and realize significant, measurable savings as a result of improved business efficiencies and employee productivity.
We’re always looking for talented people to join our Sales, Operations, and Client Care teams. If you’re interested in joining the Sarbari team, send a cover letter, resume, and your LinkedIn profile to firstname.lastname@example.org.
