What’s Up Wednesday – Mixed Cases

Posted by on 3:21 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

mixed casesAs of August 17, we will no longer be offering mixed cases of 6. You will only be able to purchase our products in multiples of 12.

We want to offer the best customer service to all of our customers. 
So, in an effort to expedite shipping, we pack all of our cases of 12 in individual boxes. This has enabled us to do FAST, same day shipping on orders and has resulted in less product damage during transit. This will also help us offer 2-3 day shipping during this holiday season. 
Most customers find with regular sampling, TRC’s products sell well. And, they like ordering in cases of 12 because there is less mess when unpacking a box without those pesky peanuts, and their customers enjoy a more plump display to choose from.

If you LOVE mixed cases of 6, ORDER NOW! 

As always, there is a $50 order minimum which is about 2 cases of product.

What’s Up? A New Shipping Method!

Posted by on 5:11 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

boxesWe love our customers, and we listen to your input. Lately, many Wholesale Customers have had complaints about the peanuts in their shipments. 

Do you remember digging through endless amounts of peanuts  for product to inventory your TRC shipment? It was like looking for a needle in a haystack!

Not Any More! We have a new shipping method! Starting soon, you will be seeing each case of product cased in a separate box. These boxes will be placed in a bigger box to ship to you. Now you will be able to pull each case of product out and put it directly on the shelf. We hope this helps you save time inventorying shipments.  

We will still use peanuts for any retail shipments. 

Please give us feedback! When you receive your next shipment, let us know how your shipment made it to you.
