Convenience store operators looking to increase their sales of warehouse-delivered snacks now have their own support group. The Warehouse-Delivered Snack Committee, an initiative formed and led by the American Wholesale Marketers Association, is working to drive snack category profits for retailers, following a C/SCAPE study that reinforced the higher margins offered by warehouse-delivered snacks. A major initiative in making these snacks more appealing to retailers has been the snack multi-vendor endcap, which combines the best-selling snack products from a variety of manufacturers on one rack.
