Experience. MARV vendors bring the reliability and business expertise restaurants need to create a thriving establishment. Our partnership approach combined with trusted solutions help restaurateurs navigate the demanding and competitive hospitality industry.

Simplicity. Stop wasting time trying to find what you need.  We’ve simplified how restaurants find vendors, resources and tools by putting them all in one location. MARV helps you find the support you need fast so you can get it done and focus on running your restaurant.

Who we are

The Mountain Area Restaurant Vendors group (MARV) was created in 2005 to provide support for professional hospitality vendors in Western North Carolina. The network was developed for vendors to market their products and services and to refer other like-minded hospitality professionals to their clients.

Why we value integrity

The MARV network of professional vendors works by holding each member to a high standard of service. No one wants to refer a resource who provides poor service and products. We believe in referring quality vendors who we’d trust and refer to our own friends and family. Those referrals are the way MARV ensures clients get trusted help when they need it most.

How we are committed to your success

MARV is always on the lookout for new trends and ways we can help a restaurant achieve success. We meet on a regular basis to discuss these changes and share them with the restaurants we support. Knowledge and preparation are essential to your continued business success.
