National Retail Merchandising Support for Grocery Retail

Our retail merchandising specialists work closely with grocers and manufacturers to ensure shelves are stocked, and products are merchandised effectively.

Drive Wins at the Store Level With Effective Retail Merchandising

With so many items competing for consumers’ attention, manufacturers need to prioritize store execution and ensure their fresh food products are placed, priced, and promoted effectively. This can be tricky, though, as it requires a collaborative, connected effort with in-store retail execution teams.

As a fresh food brokerage, retail merchandising is a crucial aspect of our business. Epic Sales Partners work closely with grocery stores and other retail outlets to ensure that their shelves are stocked with high-quality, fresh produce, meats, and other products and that fresh food manufacturers maximize profitability. We help you stay in stock and within code dates.


Supporting Flawless Retail Execution

Epic’s retail merchandising specialists assist with in-store displays and signage to make it easy for customers to find and purchase the products they need. We help increase sales for our retail partners by merchandising their fresh food products effectively and providing their customers with a convenient and enjoyable shopping experience. Our main goal is to make sure that our client's products are being seen and bought by as many people as possible. We're always looking for new ways to increase exposure and sales for our clients.

Our team also creates customized marketing programs for our clients to improve sales of fresh produce, meats, dairy, deli, and bakery items. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of each individual customer, including pricing and promotional strategies specific to each location. In addition, our retail specialists can teach and train store associates on the proper handling and presentation of your products.

You can rely on our experienced food sales brokers to help your company increase sales, achieve higher brand visibility, and improve product placement.


Epic: The Fresh Food Catalysts

Since 2015, Maher Marketing, Premier Sales Solutions, Frontier Food Brokerage, and MPF Sales and Marketing have worked collectively but operated with individual, distinct identities. Each brokerage has a unique and proud history, with our respective experience, insights, confidence, and access spanning more than 35 years.

We recognized, however, that we can do more for our manufacturers, our retailers, our associates, and our communities if we operate collaboratively with a common brand and identity.

The newly formed Epic Sales Partners is the largest national independent fresh food sales agency creating deep relationships with food retailers locally and nationally. We serve as the bridge connecting grocery retailers with fresh food manufacturers in the bakery, deli, meat, seafood, produce, dairy, and frozen departments, as well as in the natural, specialty, and organic departments.
