Andrea Anderson, Manager, Destin Beef Jerky Outlet
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AND CUSTOMERS:
Our business is right in the heart of Destin, Florida. We have been here for many years and going on 4 years at this location. The store has been taken over by new owners and has thrived at it’s new location. Our business is to supply high quality jerky at an affordable price. Our store has a variety of items, not just jerky.
We have happily been a customer of Tropical Foods since May of 2016. Tropical Foods offers such an assortment of products that any business could benefit, regardless of what type of service it offers.
WHAT TROPICAL PRODUCTS DOES YOUR BUSINESS SELL?
Destin Beef Jerky sells a variety of Tropical Foods products. We have 3 different types of granola, 5 of their trail mixes, several dried fruits, wasabi peanuts,and Sriracha peas, just to name a few.
HOW DO YOU MERCHANDISE YOUR PRODUCTS FOR MAXIMUM SUCCESS? ANY TIPS & TRICKS?
We have them displayed in several areas throughout the store. We have a front and back entrance, so there is one display with several different Tropical products on it when you walk into the back, and then 3 other areas in the front of the store where we display them. We rotate the products on the rack at the back every few weeks since that is a very noticeable location. It seems to be a good idea to have more than one display of product, because someone who may be interested in seeing a product the first time may just need to see it one more time to decide to buy it. Customers always enjoy coming in and looking to see what we have added since their last visit.
PERSONAL FAVORITE TROPICAL PRODUCT?
I love the dried blueberries and granola with my yogurt in the morning. For something with a lil’ kick, the wasabi peanuts are awesome. My all time favorite is probably Super Charged Cranberry Blend which I can enjoy any time.
