SELL FIRST, SAMPLE LAST
FOODTEMPS is the nation’s leading professional specialty food and housewares demonstration agency because we sell more product by providing energetic, outgoing, professionally trained sales specialists. We hire dynamic individuals who are expertly trained to deliver demonstrations with flair that will attract customers and sell more product. Most other demonstration agencies are satisfied to have their employees merely hand out free samples, but we train our employees to "Sell First, Sample Last." Demonstrations in the past have been notorious for primarily providing customers with unlimited free snacks and incidental associated sales. Shrinking bottom lines and spiraling demonstration costs have forced manufacturers to demand more. In response to these concerns, FOODTEMPS trains its demonstrators to give their 3-point sales presentation prior to offering samples. The results have been impressive, reducing the cost of sample supplies and increasing sales.
PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED DEMONSTRATORS SELL MORE PRODUCT!!!
All demonstrators are required to attend intensive group training before beginning work with FOODTEMPS. Each new demonstrator is personally trained by FOODTEMPS staff and receives a comprehensive FOODTEMPS Training Manual. Demonstrators are provided with a FOODTEMPS Fact Sheet, which includes key selling points and exact instructions on how to perform each demonstration.
Demonstrators are required to submit a FOODTEMPS Sales and Promotion Report Form for each demonstration performed. We also provide department managers with written quarterly questionnaires to review and improve our demonstrators’ performances. Our multi-level approach delivers first class demonstrations that excite retailers, inform customers and sell product!
