Company Summary

Nix86 has built the first unified and transparent ordering and communication platform for the $300B foodservice distribution industry. This supply chain is currently undigitized. It is dominated by paper and telephone, resulting in lost profit for restaurants and lost selling opportunities for suppliers. With Nix86 both parties save time and make more money.
