The food and beverage industry has been experiencing huge growth in the healthy foods segment. Consumers are increasingly becoming more aware of what they are eating and feeding to their family. People search out foods that are gluten free, organic, all natural, or do not contain ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, MSG (monosodium glutamate), and others.
For the last 12 years the company has filled a niche in the food and beverage industry by providing high quality beverages, snacks and other “best in class” food products at competitive prices. The company is run by the owner with one employee who helps in the warehouse and drives the delivery truck.
A solid and trustworthy reputation has been built by consistently offering superior customer service and solidifying long term relationships with both manufacturers and customers. The Company serves a diversified client base of 100 repeat customers that includes both food service and retail stores, including independent grocery stores and chains, restaurants, cafés, hotels, deli’s and more. Having a diversified customer base ensures that the company will not be significantly impacted by the loss of a single account. There are no territory restrictions. Current accounts are located throughout the entire Chicago metropolitan area. Many products are Gluten Free, Organic and/or All Natural. Store and cafe owners are buying these types of products because it is what their educated consumer is purchasing. The product lines complement each other, making it easier to sell multiple product lines to one account. For example, the ideal customer is a deli, café, restaurant or sandwich shop.
While this business has enjoyed consistent growth, there is considerable room for expansion by adding additional accounts and expanding the product lines. There are numerous methods to expand the product lines, such as industry tradeshows, publications and being contacted by independent manufacturers who are looking for a distributor. Additional accounts can be added by making sales calls and providing samples to prospective customers. The Company is provided leads from their vendors, as well as being contacted by customers. This business does not require hard selling tactics or prior food knowledge.
