Nourishing Neighborhoods One Bakery at a Time
Is there any smell more memorable in a grocery store than baked goods? From fresh-baked bread to pre-packaged cookies, bakeries often bring the most smiles of any department. Grocery retailers depend on their bakery to be a staple of their fresh food offerings, and they are looking for quality, innovative and always-available products. At the same time, bakery suppliers can struggle to build relationships with new retailers or develop a strategic dialogue that can bring exciting new products to partners.
Having the right food sales agent is invaluable as you look to maintain and expand your relationships and distribution. Epic Sales Partners leverages over 35 years of experience within the in-store bakery to build ideal partnerships between manufacturers and grocery retailers.
We know our stuff when it comes to supplying pre-made baked goods, and we understand how to leverage in-store bakery manufacturing processes to enhance existing products. Our retail specialist can teach and train bakery department employees and keep standards consistent across retail settings. When you work with Epic, you get the most experienced food sales agent in the bakery industry committed to improving your market share each and every day.
Some grocery retailers need scratch bakery ingredients, some need pre-baked items, some need ready-to-sell products, and others need both. Regardless of your focus, having a trusted food sales agent to work on your behalf is critical to cultivating and maintaining relationships with grocery retail chains at the local, regional, and national levels.
