June 6, 2017 – Modesto, CA
Modesto Milling is seeing huge growth in the amount of feed stores it services across the country. We are bringing on new retailers in California, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, Alaska, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Montana as well as other states. This is not only great news for Modesto Milling, it is also great news for customers.
Local retailers add convenience, reduce lead times, help distribute shipping costs and, in some cases, can produce a volume of orders to warrant custom feed formulations to meet specific needs of their regional customer base.
Feed stores and other retailers that tend to be our strongest partners have some common attributes. They watch trends, and they are in very close contact with their customers, so they understand those customers’ needs and goals. For example, they may be tracking a local interest in organic feed or a growing disenchantment with large, high-production feed brands. These stores realize Modesto Milling can satisfy both of these issues.
We try to make it easy for these stores to dip their toes in the water to see if Modesto Milling will appeal to their clients. We often provide free samples and signage to stores to help them get started. We don’t require minimum orders, so there is little risk for new potential retailers. We also list them on our website and announce them in our monthly email newsletter to make it easier for customers to find them.
We can customize formulations for those who gain traction or want to increase traction. We can fully customize the feed for orders of 3 tons or more, but we also have 5 “secret menu” semi-custom formulations available in 1 ton tote or larger orders. Some retailers even use us to formulate for their own house “bagged and branded” offerings. These large scale orders and production runs often qualify for wholesale pricing.
