Today is National Garlic Day – April 19, 2022

One thing’s obvious: There’s a certain something in the air during National Garlic Day.
Did you know that Egyptians worshipped garlic as a god—and even used it as currency? That’s not all. Garlic supposedly gave strength to Greek athletes and warriors, warded off the evil eye, and protected maidens from evil nymphs. Not to mention, vampires. (Thanks, Dracula!)

Just think about all the garlicky foods we love. There’s garlic bread and garlic fries for starters. If you feel as strongly about garlic as we do, celebrate with us on April 19.

GTO Suppliers

Supplier Updates

Please note that many restaurants and attractions haven’t set their 2023 rates yet and some haven’t set 2022 rates as they are just building back their staff.

If you receive any 2022 or 2023 pricing, please forward that to our help desk so we can get that entered for you ASAP.

We have reached out and are anxiously awaiting pricing from many suppliers.  If you have put in a help desk request, please know that we are currently working on those and will have the pricing loaded as soon as the supplier has released the new pricing.
