Ramsey, NJ – Cascadia Consulting Group, consultants to the food and beverage industry, released their annual list of 250+ key food and beverage retailers in New York City. The list is based on shear volume AND the prestige the account offers the food or beverage companies being sold in those accounts. The list ranges from gourmet shops to natural food markets to café’s to caterers and even butcher shops.
“Most food and beverage companies are very misinformed” states Bill Sipper, Senior Partner at Cascadia Consulting Group. “Most brands do not launch initially at places like 7-11 or Safeway and become consumer hits overnight. Before you get to those types of accounts you have to already have a consumer following to assure success. Success starts with being in the right stores and doing the right things in those stores to add volume for your company AND the retail store. In New York City for example, there are over 250 key retailers that need to be selling your products if you want to be the next overnight success story. Almost every city has their own “list”.”
The top three food and beverage accounts in New York City, ranked by volume and prestige, are Fairway, Dean and Delucca, and Gourmet Garage. “Some of these accounts can make or break a new brand” adds Sipper.
Cascadia Consulting Group offers consulting service in 7 primary areas: General Management, Sales and Distribution, Sales Training and Development, Marketing, Finance, Operations and Logistics, and Human Resources.
Cascadia services Fortune 500 companies, medium size firms, as well as startups and small companies. Their strategies are created in a board room but implemented at street level.
