Which areas are still available?
Many, many good states still do not have even one distributor yet. An average state can hold between 1 and 3 distributors. It all depends on the population and variety of work available. There are 33,000 trade shows in the United States annually, plenty enough to keep a lot of people busy. This does not take into account wholesale accounts with retail possibilities that are also open for distributors.
How much to start your business?
To appropriately start doing trade shows with an adequate inventory and supplies will take about $6,000 to $10,000. There is no sign-up fee to start. That’s right, ZERO!
An initial order can vary in size, depending on the shows that you choose to work. Equipment will run you around $1,500. Product will run you around $4,000 to $6,000 depending on the type of shows you will be doing. Our job will be to teach you how to order correctly so that you are not wasting your precious seed capital in inventory that you will not need right away.
Where can you sell?
We sell product anywhere that our target market shops. To start, we would like to see you work events in your hometown area to get the word and product association started. Start local and then expand into further markets. You will only want to work events where you can sample our products. Since our products sell themselves, sampling is vital. We recommend farmers markets, wineries, home and garden shows, boat shows, holiday boutiques, food events, art fairs, state fairs, etc. You will quickly learn which type of shows work best for you.
Another fantastic opportunity to sell would be to the wholesale market. Our products make excellent options to a variety of retail environments and offer retailers a fantastic profit margin. This market is virtually untapped and offers our distributors a great year round addition to doing trade shows.
How much will you make?
We have priced our products at an extremely competitive level to maximize your profit margins. The amount of profits you will see depends on the amount of shows/exposure you do, and the size of these events. The larger the crowd, the larger the sales, the more you make. A typical hard working distributor can make well into the six digit income.
Who is an ideal candidate to distribute?
The ideal person for this business is one that interested in building a company that can create residual income as well as earn a very healthy living mostly working weekends. Some folks get into the business because they are tired of the rat race, or they are at a point in their life where they want to switch gears and do something for themselves that they have been wanting to do for years. After all, who deosn’t want to walk into their job and tell their boss, “YOU’RE FIRED”! When you work for somebody else you make them money, when you work for yourself you make the money!
What is an “area” ? What are the borders?
All Celia's Gourmet Foods wholesale distributorships are contracted regionally, usually state by state. The size of the state, the population of the state, and the amount of shows available to do will dictate how many distributorships will be awarded in each state or region. Once you have a contract for a distributorship, you will have the opportunity to book shows in your area that will be yours for the duration of your contract. Once you book a show it is yours to keep and no-one can take it from you.
