Into what your restaurant needs!


Restaurants Almost Everything they need to succeed!

EOA restaurants, bars, diners, espresso shops and caterers have been trading their empty tables, slow times and unbooked catering jobs for thousands of Alaskan products and services for more than 24-years. Most restaurants depend upon word-of-mouth to grow their customer bases, while our clients simply advertise whenever they want, and as often as they want - as they can easily afford it.


The dining and drinks industries  almost always have the ability to serve more clients then they do. Like hotels, empty tables, slow times and unbooked catering jobs cannot be saved to sell later - when the time is over, so is their value. Consider how much these empty tables and catering jobs cost your company.


Twenty empty tables per day at an average retail rate of $35 equals over $4,900 per week or more than $21,000 per month. If EOA could convert just 10-percent of your current lost revenue at your menu pricing (all organized barter transactions are at your regular pricing) this 10-percent increase would in this example equal an additional $2,100 per month in added revenue. Which is what EOA can do for your company!


We provide our restaurateur clients with new customers to help fill those otherwise empty tables and turn that unused capacity into purchasing power.  And these new customers are usually loyal to your restaurant. They normally by-pass your competition to use you and they will not jump like Groupon-ers to the next discounted meal your competition makes.


It is easy. Simply trade your unused catering time slots and empty tables for trade dollar paying customers. EOA handles all the paperwork and you'll make your restaurant a lot more profitable. Our restaurateur clients can also control the amount of trade dollars they receive per month if they want, thereby only acquiring trade dollars for what they plan on spending.

Spending earned trade dollars instead of cash allows you to keep your cash for other uses. ​​EOA clients use trade dollars instead of cash to pay for locally needed products and services.


And remember, every trade dollar you spend leaves a matching cash dollar in your bank account!


When you purchase goods and services through our 24-year old, 650 Alaskan business owner network, your costs are around 35c on the dollar, as you only accept trade dollars when you'd otherwise have an empty table.


Let’s do the math:  If your food costs are 35% of your sales, then 35% of each diner’s tab is the wholesale cost of product, and 65% of the tab is a net loss per unoccupied table. EOA allows you to monetize those unused tables and turn them into buying power. Which allows you to negate the loss, by turning vanishing inventory into essential goods and services.


Besides hundreds of Alaskan clients, 90% of which are located in Anchorage; where are also 500 offices located in the lower-48 that represent more than 1 million businesses where Alaskan members can spend their trade dollars. There are also 200 offices located outside of the US, whose office's businesses also accept trade dollars.
