Eby-Brown Co. LLC, a consumer products distributor to the convenience industry in the Eastern U.S., was awarded one of Northern Tier Retail’s Strategic Partner of the Year awards.
Northern Tier Retailer, a petroleum convenience store operator with 260 corporate & franchise locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota, has been Eby-Brown’s retail partner since November 2010.
Kraig Elliot, Northern Tier Retail’s Director of Marketing Category Management, highlighted Eby-Brown’s strong mix of program offerings as a key factor to driving in-store growth.
“Programs like Vendor Days, where we negotiate promotional deals for the upcoming year and SmartProcess, a leading category management solution that builds and implements our market specific planograms, are perfect examples of how Eby-Brown provides value above and beyond the industry standard,” said Elliot.
“We’re extremely proud to be recognized for our strategic relationship with Northern Tier Retail,” said Tom Wake, co-president of Eby-Brown. “Their commitment to excellence and passion for their business continues to drive us to provide best in class service. We look forward to the continued success of our strategic partnership.”
