Having worked with foodpreneurs for many years, I know that the chance to get into the mind of a retail buyer is priceless. Knowing how to land a meeting with them, how to get onto their shelves, and even how to get them to respond to your emails and/or phone calls would be an invaluable opportunity for many of you.
That’s why in episode 55 of Foodpreneur with Chelsea Ford podcast, I chat with specialty retail buyer Tim Sykes from the AMAZING Gertrude Grocer, and ask him all the things you’ve ever wanted to know from a specialty retail buyer.
Listen now to discover:
🛒 WHEN and HOW to contact them to get stocked.
🛒 What to bring with you when you do land a meeting.
🛒 What to do if you drop in unannounced (or whether you should at all!)
🛒 A new way to contact a buyer that you probably haven’t thought of.
And as an updated BONUS ✨ My expert advice on how to tap into consumer and retailer behaviour to maximise your growth, even in these tough economic times.
