Food & Beverage Independent Distributor
Buffalo Market is the most efficient, transparent, and brand-friendly DSD (direct store delivery) food distributor on the market. We specialize in working with the fastest-moving products and the largest retail chains across the United States. With a nimble, customer-centric business model and a technologically advanced distribution system, Buffalo Market provides a more transparent and efficient experience throughout a product’s lifecycle.
Buffalo Market is looking for independent distributor partners to deliver and grow sales on our incredible portfolio of products. You’ll acquire the rights to sell our brands in a designated territory with uncapped commissions. You’ll have an established route with a variety of fast-moving food products, such as bread, tortillas, and beverages. You’ll quickly grow your sales and commissions by keeping products replenished, building relationships with store and category managers, and adding new brands.
DSD is a way for you to turn your experience in delivery, distribution, or food sales into a business of your own. Buffalo Market gives you the support you need to make it happen: financing, vehicle assistance, route planning, order recommendations, and much more. Apply now to realize your dream.
