Brands reduce their operating costs by partnering with Premier's Independent Distributors. All costs are known upfront and controlled by the brand; there are no mandatory programs or surprise deductions.
Premier's distributors primarily focus on independent retailers. There is less competition in this channel so gaining access to the shelf or floor space is much easier and less expensive in the long run.
Premier's distributors have many years of relationships with an existing customer base of retailers. They essentially have an open invitation to introduce new products and gain sales trials.
Premier's distributors are experienced and effective sales professionals. A distributor's income is based 100% on the profit derived from sales. They know how to sell and upsell off-shelf displays.
Premier's DSD Distributors are trained and committed to carefully stocking products, ensuring product freshness, and obtaining desirable shelf space. Brands can also provide logoed apparel and merchandising protocols to be followed.
Distributors own and maintain their delivery vehicles. Most rent warehouse space or work out of public storage facilities capable of receiving 53' trailers. Distributors will buy in pallet quantities and resell in cases.
There is just a one-time nominal start-up fee, which serves as a pre-payment of commissions; and the cost of shipping samples to the desired territories and distributors.
Brands have more control over their growth. Through Premier DSD®, a brand can choose to start regionally and control the pace to expand into new markets.
Brands can communicate directly with the distributors or channel everything through Premier DSD® for convenience. We will provide access to our vendor portal, where you can have a full view of your brand's sales activities.
