    What is the difference between a Distributor and as Master Distributor?

    I could be wrong...but a distributor is when you are able to sell a brand in a specified area, doesnt have to be exclusive. Master Distributor is when you have the rights to the brand over a given area. Maybe a state, maybe the country. But you buy from the supplier, and any distributor that wants the brand buys from you.

    i think it also means you have direct control over the entire area, but if it's not in your financial interest, you can 'rent' territories inside of your footprint to others. we give away some brands here at work because it's not worth it driving 40 miles to drop off five cases of heineken once a month in the boonies.
