BOSTON and BALTIMORE, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today at the Natural Products East Expo, Survey.com, a leading full service retail solution provider for brands, announced the launch of a new service designed to help emerging brands gain distribution by expanding relationships with retailers and distributors. The Accelerator Team by Survey expands upon the company’s existing offerings of targeted in-store execution, activations, and retail analytics.

The new Accelerator service will help brands expand distribution across multiple retail channels, including natural channels, convenience stores, independent grocers and UDS (up and down street) retailers. The Accelerator team will provide headquarter-to-retail management services, serving as a one-stop solution to growing brands at retail with:

-- Selling to both store level and HQ buyers -- Merchandising -- Brand ambassadors and product demonstrations -- Data, analytics, and reporting

Survey.com has launched the service in Southern California, a key point-of-entry market for emerging brands, and a hub for retailers. With five tiers of pricing, plans can be tailored to meet the needs of growing brands.

“We now offer brands a comprehensive approach to growing their retail presence,” said Panos Bethanis, CEO of Survey.com. “We work with customers at any point in their life cycle, from emerging brand at pre-launch to mature company with multiple product lines. Our team helps brands make connections with buyers at retail headquarters, manage sell-in at the individual store level, ensure there is clear alignment across each of the retail partners, and increase velocity on all fronts.”

The Accelerator Team is comprised of proven industry experts within the food and beverage industry. Leading the new service is Survey.com CFO Jason Baldachino. “Survey.com has the technology and 600,000 field reps to achieve each brand’s in-store goals,” said Baldachino. “With the addition of the Accelerator Team, we become the one-stop shop and strategic partner for brands that want to grow in brick-and-mortar.
