SALES AND DISTRIBUTION
Once a plan is in place, then its time to let your broker get to work. Through relationships across national retailers and distributors, we will work to find a home to grow your brand. We are able to find the right distributors pending production size
When you are established in retail chains, we will come up with a plan to keep up with the supply to current distributors and retailers.
