brands, he knew he was giving his clients an important next level of service for kicking off Florida. SAS Sales and Marketing’s expanding team of driver/sales, merchandising, and product demonstration professionals would help accelerate a new brand’s transition to a Natural or DSD distributor by gaining initial distribution in key accounts throughout the state.

Now, SAS Sales and Marketing is proud to announce that they are an authorized vendor in the following chains, expediting their brands’ journey from production to on-shelf presence:

  • Lucky’s

  • Nutrition S’Mart

  • Chamberlin’s

  • Local 7-11

  • Joseph’s Gourmet Markets

“Being an authorized vendor means that we no longer have several months lag time between retail authorization and distributor acceptance,” said Andy Stallone, CEO of SAS Sales and Marketing. “The day we are approved, in either independent or chain accounts where we are an authorized vendor, we can be on the shelf!”

Corporate authorizations have recently been obtained and the shelves have been set for several SAS-managed brands, including TICKLE WATER naturally flavored premium sparkling water, PHOCUS caffeinated sparkling water, TIGO sports hydration beverage, and KOHANA cold brewed coffee.
