The proof is in the numbers. Here are some typical member experiences.


The Biltmore Estate
Asheville, NC

“We chose Essensa because they did not take a cookie cutter approach. Unlike other group purchasing organizations we explored, Essensa provided us with the flexibility necessary to sustain our varied business operations.”

- Laura Carideo
Food and Beverage Purchasing, The Biltmore Estate


Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn
Rapid City, South Dakota

“We consider Essensa to be a strategic partner. Having never worked with a GPO previously, Essensa’s comprehensive product offerings, deep industry experience, and feet-on-the-ground approach made them a logical choice. This year alone we have seen over $75,000 in savings in food purchasing and feel confident that number will only increase as we continue to contract through Essensa’s vendors.”

- Marci Reuter
Assistant General Manager, Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn


Canyon Ranch
Locations in Tucson, Arizona; Lenox, Massachusetts; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Miami Beach, Florida

“Due to our strict nutrition philosophy as a world-class health and wellness resort, our food and beverage purchasing is often limited….Essensa’s broad portfolio of contracts has provided us with numerous options, with no purchasing minimum, and has also upheld our brand standards and identity. Due to our relationship with Essensa, we have seen on average a 15% reduction in our costs, with some contracts resulting in savings as high as 35%.

- Scott Wraith
Corporate Director of Purchasing, Canyon Ranch
