Beverage Distributor Product Sales Sample Proposal
How to Increase Your Local Beverage Sales
Congratulations on expanding your chain of BuyLokal Markets. It’s an exciting development for West Tennessee consumers to have access to more of your stores. Did you know that Sunshine Beverage Company stocks and delivers many beverages from local suppliers. These include craft beers from Best2You Brewery and Walkner Brewing Company; exotic flavored waters, sodas, and mixers from Soda Plus Creators; more than 16 different wines from members of the Backhill Vineyard Association, and the wonderful whiskeys from MacEnroe Whiskey Distillery.
We have distribution centers around West Tennessee, many close to your various outlets. Please review the enclosed proposal to see how we can help your business sell more local products. We will call you soon to schedule a meeting.
We’re looking forward to doing business with you. Sunshine Beverage Company delivers beverages from local suppliers throughout West Tennessee. We are the beverage distributor best positioned to help BuyLokal Markets stock and sell both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Decades ago in the United States, a handful of soda suppliers owned the market; a few big beer companies had their products in every bar, and California and New York supplied wine for the domestic market. Wow, has the market changed. In the last decade there has been an explosion of craft beverage companies that now have substantial market share, and their Made in USA products are in demand across the country.
We believe this trend is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, because who wants to give up variety. That’s why we specialize in offering a wide array of beers, wines, spirits, and nonalcoholic products to our customers. Health clubs can order vitamin waters and juice drinks; nightclubs can specify specialty flavors of vodka; and restaurants can stock a variety of products to keep their customers satisfied.
We currently offer nearly 300 products, and we expect this number to grow to 350 next year. We plan to open a new distribution center and add more delivery trucks to handle the increased demand for specialty products. Sunshine Beverage Company distributes a wide array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
The following list is a general description of what we can offer you. Beer We currently offer a wide selection of 36 domestic beers, 57 imported beers, and 75 craft beers, and we’re always adding new ones. Wine We offer 85 domestic wines and 34 imported wines, and we add to this list as our suppliers bring new products to market.
Spirits We offer 22 types of rum, vodka, whiskey, and liqueurs. Non-alcoholic Drinks We offer sodas, teas, flavored waters, and juice drinks from 20 different suppliers. As you can see, we are the distributor of choice for many different suppliers. If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, just ask—odds are that we can deliver it for you.
