Yesterday marked a very important day and step for us here at SakTea. We were able to present our product in front of 75+ Sales reps of Southern Wine & Spirits at the San Diego corporate office. All of us were anxious, nervous, excited and emotional as this is a huge piece of the puzzle. Everyday is a new experience in the alcohol business and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with one of the best distributors in the business!
We had a time slot of 11:00 am and had exactly 15 minutes to introduce ourselves, serve samples to each sales rep along with distribute the gift bags we had prepared for each and every individual in the office. Waiting in the hallway and preparing for what we had to do was probably the most nerve racking. Once we moved into the conference room. . . Game time. Neil Sorensen (GM) of SWS San Diego took the stage to introduce us and we can’t thank him enough for the support and enthusiasm. Hats off to you Neil!!!
The ice was broken in our pitch when one lucky sales rep removed a white envelope from their gift bag that held $500 dollars!!! I think this got everyone’s attention in the meeting and for sure made ourselves a hard working rep to go push SakTea!!
All in all it was a fantastic day for us and we look forward to many influential days like this in the future!
