Take a look at our tips below and dive into RepHunter’s expansive database of food service brokers and distributors looking for commission-only food brokers and outside sales food reps.

Analyze Your Current Rolodex

Your present lines probably occupy the same territory, but encompass different types of businesses. An Italian restaurant, a bakery, retail grocery store a wholesale grocery chain all need different products that are carried by food service distributors. If you are willing to dive into a new sector of the food service industry, try to figure out how easy it will be to carry over your expertise, and if your current contacts will be able to put in a good word for you with your new food broker sales job / line. It might be easy to expand into bakeries if your restaurant clients have great relationships with their bread and dessert suppliers, and a great relationship with you as the outside sales rep.

Supplement Experience with Education

Running a restaurant is hard work, and many food services businesses fail. To succeed in the restaurant business your end product must be high quality and consistent, and as a restaurant owner you rely on consistency from your suppliers in order to hit these goals. For food retailers, meeting the ever-changing consumer tastes means adding more variety, such as organic, international or whatever-free item is popular at the moment. As a food service, if you have a background in restaurant management or have training in this area, you’ll find your relationship with businesses in the food service industry and ability to sell to their needs will improve, and more food services sales representative jobs and opportunities will open to you. As with any sales niche, keeping up with the times is important, too. Food prices and availability fluctuate constantly, and the more knowledge you have in this area, the more comfortable food service businesses will be in switching to you as their vendor of essential supplies.

I’ve been able to expand my operation and increase my income. Many opportunities exist with the RepHunter website. They have given me the opportunity to expand and diversify.
