“Pursue every opportunity” is Rule Zero in any business. And in the food service supply industry, those opportunities are all around. As a company that sells equipment and ingredients to restaurants and caterers, you can expand your business in many simple and profitable ways. One valuable but often-overlooked avenue for expansion is uniform supply. By adding employee apparel to your selection of pots, pans, grills, stoves, and foodstuffs, you not only expand your sales, but make yourself indispensable to clients. In this way, you lay the foundation for your continued success over the long haul.
In today’s gig economy, many of us have an extra job on the weekends or a gig to do at nights. It’s easier than ever to get some extra income. You could drive for Uber. Help someone move through Task Rabbit. Or search for projects on Freelancer.com.
To succeed in the modern market, you have to think outside the box— or, if you’re selling uniforms, outside the store. The most successful uniform marketers go beyond simply convincing potential customers to visit their shops and pick out gear for work. Instead, they promote their products directly through clients’ workplaces, convincing employers to adopt quality gear for all of their workers. One of the most effective ways to do this is through an employee apparel program. By catering to clients who have such programs while convincing others to adopt them, you can sell uniforms on a large scale while delivering consistent, ongoing benefits to your customers.
