SO YOU WANT A DISTRIBUTING OPPORTUNITY?
The Northwest Food Show has partnered with Oregon-based distributor, McDonald Wholesale, to provide a platform for you to pitch your product! Over the years, our regional food show has attracted purveyors of all sizes to showcase their products to foodservice owners and operators throughout the Pacific Northwest. With many of the products featured annually in our emerging products section, we have become aware of a growing need to facilitate collaboration with vendors and operators, by making the connection through distribution.
Pitch it, Shark Tank Style!
Taking place on Monday, April 19 at the Northwest Food Show, selected applicants will have the opportunity to take the stage in front of the audience and decision-makers at McDonald Wholesale. You will have a 10 minutes live pitch for your product and the opportunity to field questions from McDonald Wholesale. Deliberations will occur and vendors will be notified of selection at the close of the live programming. This is a limited opportunity with only three vendors being selected for distribution.
What exactly is the opportunity?
McDonald Wholesale has a sales team of over 30 foodservice professionals that have current customers, contacts and potential customers in Oregon and Washington. With a highly efficient warehouse that tracks items from receiving to delivery of all items, they will provide each emerging partner, monthly sales meetings for introducing, making contacts, obtaining leads and training of their sales team.
