Food Suppliers: Selecting Your Service Region

With the dashboard, we’ve created a platform that lets food suppliers quickly log in, see new requests from restaurants and food establishments in their region, make offers on those orders, promote new products, and deliver targeted promotions.

Once you’ve created your supplier account, which you can do here if you haven’t already, you’ll first want to establish your service region. It’s important to properly establish this region in order for your FoodTender dashboard to display only those open orders located within your organization’s service area.

Establishing Your Region 

Be sure you’re on the “My Account Page” by clicking the cogwheel icon next to your account’s name in the top right-hand corner.

Next, scroll down to the “Region Information” section.

Here, you have two options. You can select all of the provinces you’re currently able to serve with the default “Select Your Desired Provinces” option. Simply check off those provinces from which you wish to see new available orders, and save at the bottom.

If you’d like to create a more customized region for your services, select the “Create a Custom Region” option from the drop-down menu. You’ll be presented with a map of your immediate area with your location pinpointed with a blue arrow. This is based on the address you submit when you create your account. In this example, my company is headquartered in Toronto.

Click anywhere on the map to set your first pin, you can then drag and drop that pin anywhere on the map to begin.

Continue to click points on the map to define your custom region, noting that at least three points must be selected. Once you’re satisfied with your service region, simply click on the first pin again to lock it in. Don’t worry, you can select “clear map” if you make a mistake. Also be aware that you can zoom in and out on the map using your mouse’s scroll wheel.

Now click the “Save” button in the bottom left-hand corner to save your new custom region. You should now be ready to see requests from restaurants and food establishments in your area only.

If you encounter any difficulty setting up your customized region, be sure to watch the “FoodTender Area Selection Tutorial” video we’ve embedded to the right of your map for your convenience.
