    shark has a very long history in many markets all over the world. the product does amazing in both europe and asia. the north american market is new to shark but i think it will have the same impact since the product is great tasting and the branding is simple and positive.

    funny enough our bosses name is ichiro ?

    Hey Shark-

    Shark Energy is not new to North America. It Has been tried and retried. Hopefully the 3rd time is a Charm for your company.

    You should have a professional chat with Ron. He is familiar with Shark Energy and probably can confirm or deny any of the promises or half truth's you been told by the company setting you up with distribution.

    A most important reminder:

    Important Reminder to Shark:

    It's their job to sell the product.
    ( Marketing, Samples,Etc)
    It's your job to get the product on the shelf.( Deliver, restock shelves, additional placements, new accounts)
    Life\'s a Party... Quench It...

    Intrested to hear of past stories of sharks distribution? What regions in the states? There has never been distribution in canada. We are currently having a really positive push even getting some serious sales even tho we have only been out on the market for a little over 8 weeks.

    uncle thirsty.

    we are currently structured like you have advised and getting great support from osatspa directly

    I do hope they changed their POS. They sent us their first english POS and didnt think to see how their Thai language translated over to english

    Good drink, but U. Thirsty is right...it has been pushed more than a couple times in the US. Just nothing behind it to propell it into the top 10.
