One of the staples of the Allen Brothers Wholesale Distribution online newsletter is the “Top Performers” articles, analyzing new product performance and other trends in the convenience store industry. Whether you’re starting a retail business, maintaining it, or expanding, choosing which new or top-performing products to bring in is a critical component of the sustainability of your operations. The items listed below are ones that, based on sales results from the previous month, should be considered for placement in your stores to increase rings at your register. As we all know in this business, cycling in new items in a timely fashion as well as keeping hot-selling products on the shelves are key to your success! To enjoy success in selling new items takes work on your part as a store owner as well. You need to be knowledgeable on the product and to believe in its value, then pass that message on to your customers.
Today’s posting is the seventh edition of “Top Performers” to date, and the Marketing and Buying Department’s ranking is placed in no particular order. The items listed are done so based on unit sales from the previous month, which in this case is January, 2012. If you’re not currently carrying these products, don’t feel like it’s too late. If they’re working in other stores that we’re servicing, they can and should work for you! The sales, customer service, and marketing team would be more than happy to take some time and work with you in designing a product selection that will maximize your profitability. That’s what we’re here for. Additionally, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding product performance, selling points, and suggested retail prices.

Happy Monday All,
Following a three-day trip in St. Louis for the 2011 DOT Food Show, there’s just one thing on my mind: Foodservice! Did you know Foodservice ranks third in convenience store sales behind just fuel and tobacco? With the ever-increasing restrictions on tobacco and the fluctuating state of oil throughout the world, the best way to protect margins in today’s market is to look outside the box and inside the bun! Hot dog roller grill programs, pizza on-the-go, coffee and cappuccino, and slushie units are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wide array of products and programs that are becoming increasingly available to convenience store operators on a daily basis.
The DOT Food Show was an eye-opening experience. Through seminars and interaction with industry leaders like Allen Brothers, the marketing and buying team observed the capabilities of the manufacturers, distributors, and retail owners to combine ingenuity and opportunity to create successful and lucrative sales. At Allen Brothers, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve. We are currently putting together a comprehensive Foodservice program that will empower our customers to take full advantage of this major profit driving division. The Allen Brothers Marketing Team has been posting pictures from the show of potential products on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/abdelivers. We encourage all of our customers to visit our Facebook page and let us know what products you like best!
If you have any questions regarding foodservice or ways that Allen Brothers can help you grow your business, contact AB today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
