I'm looking around for a distributor who might be able to get our products into stores, but I'm not getting very far with my own research.

Does anybody here work with such a company? What has been your experience? Would you recommend them? I have other questions, so if anyone out there can help, please do!

Most distributors work within a product line. They might sell just paper products, or beverages. Also, some of them distribute by end user like food service distributors. I might be able to help you more if I knew your product line.

Also, if you have only a single product, you might not be able to get anyone to distribute it because they already handle a competing product. Some distributors only handle Coca Cola Foods products so they wouldn't handle your product if it competed with, say, Minute Maid juices.

A wild idea: Google distributors for your product in your area.

Good luck.

You probably want to find a company that distributes to gift stores. Worst case: Go to a couple of local gift stores & ask them who they buy from.

Yup. Know of any off-hand or where to find listings of companies that do this?

Do you have one that smells like burnt gun powder or Breakfree CLP?

No. I'm supporting my wife's vision of owning a candle making business.

Good idea for those of us who can't make it to the range as much as we would like.
