My name is Cody Smith and I am a proud member of the Arizona Trade Exchange. I have been a member for almost 6 years and I can honestly say when it comes to ethics, ATE stands at the top of the list...

Restaurant Owners

Trade is a great way to expand your visibility and your business.  Many trade members use trade dollars in restaurants and then become regular cash customers.  Others introduce their employees, customers and vendors to restaurants through the use of trade dollars; and they also then become repeat cash customers of yours.  Trade you earn can be used to print your menus, clean your carpets, hoods and vents, windows, film videos for your website, or to do business with any other Arizona Trade Exchange member. Your can also reward your staff using trade dollars that they can then use with any of our hundreds of members.  Start benefiting today.  Trade with restaurants works in one of two ways:

  1. Restaurant “script” is purchased by members through Arizona Trade Exchange (ATE)  in denominations of $5, $10, and $20, and can be used at any ATE restaurant that accepts trade script.  Customers pay sales tax and tip in cash.
  2. or


  3. You can elect to “sell” gift cards specific for your restaurant through ATE, in various denominations.  The ATE member pays for the food with the gift card and tax and tip in cash.
