Company Summary

SmubHub is the only online marketplace that connects local restaurants with great local products and service providers for all of their sourcing needs. No convenient way exists for the 2 to transact. It’s like an online farmer’s market for restaurant buyers, but with everything from red meat to equipment. We are a mission-driven, for-profit company and we want to support local food and local economies to help small businesses thrive.
