Getting Started: Need to Improve Store Profits?

In fact, the company has been named by INC. Magazine as one of America’s “Fastest -growing, Privately-held Companies” for 8 consecutive years and is a great way to improve your store profits!
Why Work With PFS?

The company-wide focus on retailer support at PFSbrands borders on the fanatical… both in terms of program support and the amount of personal attention given retailers… all aimed at empowering the success of hot food programs in stores like yours.
The Tools You Need to Succeed
The company does not charge many of the fees that come standard in the industry. So, our “Business-within-a-Business” retail partners pay no upfront franchise fees and no ongoing royalties.
Where many brands charge their retailers 2%-5% to cover advertising fees, PFSbrands flips that one around. The company offers up to 6% of a retailers product purchases in a special Marketing Development Funds (MDF). We are planning to provide over $1,000,000 in funds to retailers this year – get a piece of the action! The retailer will then be able use these manufacturer-provided monies to underwrite approved local advertising activities designed to increase their sales to consumers. Two of our program levels (Champs Chicken) can also earn additional annual Volume Incentive Rebates which range from .5% to 5.0%! What a great way to improve your store profits, right?
