Eby-Brown and AFPD join to help convenience retailers to continue to grow their businesses.
Eby-Brown is now officially the exclusive c-store endorsed program partner of AFPD. Eby-Brown and AFPD share similar missions that make them perfect partners.
AFPD is dedicated to remaining and continuing to gain position in the convenience store industry and Eby-Brown is focused on being the preeminent provider of convenience service and solutions in the industry.
“We share a common interest and commitment to the independent market and have remained true to that commitment,” said Thomas Wake co-president of Eby-Brown.
Through Eby-Brown, AFPD is able to offer discounted rates for products to its members that chain stores get from various companies. “This enables our members to be competitive and feel more like a chain from store number one,” said Auday Arabo, president and CEO of AFPD. “Additionally, if you sign up with Eby-Brown, and qualify as a member, they will pay the AFPD membership fees for as long as the store continues to do business with Eby-Brown.”
“Eby-Brown is proud to be the exclusive c-store endorsed program partner of AFPD because we share a mutual history of organizations that have been dedicated to the c-store industry for more than 100 years,” said Thomas Wake, co-president of Eby-Brown. “AFPD is dedicated to the independent retailers that represent a significant portion of our current and prospective market. Our goal is to grow this partnership and our market share in the independent space while working toward assisting AFPD in achieving their goals of education, training and advocacy for the independent retailers.”
”Because of our size, we are able to deliver value through buying power to this market that other distributors cannot,” said Wake. “Additionally, we provide many of the same sophisticated solutions through our technology, foodservices and product mix that the independents might not otherwise have access to. We do this, because we care about providing them solutions to grow their business.”
