Restaurants and food service providers have many needs that can be filled by an able food service distributor, and new restaurants, cafes, and food trucks open every day that may need your products.
To get the greatest exposure for your product lines, put them in the hands of an experienced independent food service broker or sales rep. With many possible targets in a territory, tapping into the experience of a commission-only food sales rep can help you get a leg up on the competition, and quickly establish your market presence. The sheer variety of products in the food services industry means that food brokers or sales reps find it easier to carry your products without competing with their other lines.
As a food services distributor or broker, working with food service brokers to move your product into new territories maximizes your sales potential. Brokers readily tap into their existing contacts, helping your business grow faster so you can concentrate on the wide range of products that food service companies need. Like many other businesses, food service companies have been changing in past years, shifting to more eco-friendly products, selling more international foods, focusing on organic and more specialized ingredients, and more. Having commission-only sales agents or reps with years in the industry picking up on these needs and communicating them back to you gives your business an edge.
