Summit Wholesale is about you – the next generation of leaders. As owners/managers of coffee and tea shops, natural markets, hotels, food service, catering, and young entrepreneurs you are our sweet spot. Because you touch the lives of 1000’s of people each year, we are committed to leveraging that influence and your success. This translates directly into the advantages that Summit Wholesale will bring to your business.
- We build growing and profitable tea programs
- We become your tea experts
- We maximize your cash flow
- We support you with more than 100 premium teas and herbs in stock
- We minimize the risk of giving Summit a try
Advantage #1: We build growing and profitable tea programs
Most customers know coffee, but not tea. Often tea is the highest margin but most undersold product in many shops. Summit’s proven Tea Program, backed by our best sellers and large inventory, will quickly prove to be your most profitable income stream
Advantage #2: We become your tea experts
Since our start in 2004 we have learned what sells. You know that inferior coffee will not impress today’s coffee drinker. The customer’s expectations have risen with the sophistication of craft coffee roasting. In the same way, tea drinkers LOVE premium teas and recognize them when they taste them. Selecting the premium teas that support your vision becomes the cornerstone of Summit’s Tea Program.
Advantage #3: We maximize your cash flow
We believe that if we can first get your Tea Program working for you, then in the long run, it will work out for Summit, too.
- ½ lb. minimums: We keep your fresh tea turning new profits not sitting idle on your stock shelf
- We turn around orders in 24 hours: A short supply chain means no need for a large back-stock soaking up cash
- We ship for free: No shipping charges on small orders (we do request, not require, that customers bundle small orders to $30 or more)
Advantage #4: We have over 100 premium teas and herbs in stock
We start with best sellers and then follow your customers tastes. With many teas in each taste group, we dial in your tea program to suit your unique customers.
Advantage #5: We minimize the risk of giving Summit a try
Our initial interview surfaces those teas that already sell well and those that don’t. Together, we select 2-3 free samples of our bestselling teas to substitute for several of your bottom sellers. Taking it further, we often schedule a fun and informal in-store tasting where we can personally introduce Summit and you can try our teas. If you are outside Southern California, we can conduct our innovative virtual tea tasting with much the same experience. Three different ½ lbs. of tea and a box of our drawstring, paper and hemp blend teabags will cost around $40. On the risk scale of 1-10, this is a 1!
