TELL US MORE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO.

We are a partnership where two companies have come together to showcase what great innovations can be done in a retail, food and beverage setting. With a focus on the healthiest aspect on snacks for the trends we find today! Gluten free, protein power, low sugar, energy & nutrition, all a focus in a concept where you won’t find one candy bar anywhere!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB?

I love interacting with patients, staff, families and every guest that walks through our door. It’s a great feeling to see people light up with the excitement of some great new product or feature we have going on for the week. We have wonderful products to nutritionally meet peoples’ needs and wants, sometimes they might not even know they want these healthy snacks, but end up loving them.

WHAT TROPICAL PRODUCTS DOES YOUR BUSINESS SELL?

I currently carry 63 tropical snacks and items….tomorrow it might be 80!

ANY SNACK MERCHANDISING TIPS & TRICKS?

Keep plenty of what you need on hand, grocery-style face your product so it looks great, & keep things where guests know where to find them.

PERSONAL FAVORITE TROPICAL PRODUCT?

Now that is tough! If I had to choose, I love the Key Lime Yogurt Pretzels and Kickin’ Cajun Party Mix the most.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING WITH TROPICAL?

Tropical makes it easy. Send them a list of what you need and they get it out to you promptly.
