Hello, my name is Dave and I have recently returned from Iraq (Baghdad) and am getting ready to retire from 20 years of National Guard duty and want to begin building a future for me.

I am a distributor for True (Trying to be) and am looking for a way to get into the "BEVERAGE INDUSTRY" to sell large volumes of Glass Door Reach In's. You know the stuff you see everywhere, 7-11's, C-Stores, Supermarket Isle End caps, etc.

I know about NACS (National Assoc. of C-Stores) and the volume that can be done there but it seems the extremely large dealers / distributors are the only ones that get those type of accounts. What about the little guys starting out? I have experiance selling to large customers but not with this type of equipment.

Any suggestions? Are there any really good links out there aside of "Chain Store Guide"?? There has got to be a more direct source to get to these typoes of customers, right? Hmmm, maybe not?

What would be very helpfull is, who is the real source to approach for sales? Does the BOTTLER buy Refrigerated Glass Door Reach ins? Or is the distributors of the beverage itself?

Dave, I would suggest directly to the soft drink or beer distributors. Bevnet has a link to most of them http://www.bevnet.com/directory/category/Beverage_Distributors__USA.asp

You might also try foodservice distributors like Sysco and Us Food Service.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY!!

As an experienced person in the industry, many beverage manufacturers purchase them direct from True, BevAir, etc.....

So you will have to get into importing and try to undercut the manufacturers.

Just a thought...

Hi,

Try to contact http://www.smartplanet.net they can import private brand refrigerators for you from China.

Also, don't discount the companies that go to NACS. Many of them can use good OEM distributors.

Thanks,
