Growing at an unprecedented rate, Nicotek, LLC is expanding its distribution, again, to encompass an even larger, national retail market. Retailers and distributors are beginning to catch wind that Nicotek’s® proprietary brand, Metro®, is exactly what the electronic cigarette market demands. As a new brand to the e-cig market, Metro is catching the competitors by surprise and quickly sweeping across the country capturing the attention of several new distributors and retail chains.
Nicotek has been able to expand its distribution footprint for their Metro brand, largely in part to their recent expansion into retail stores like The Pantry (Kangaroo), Kroger Corporation, HEB, Pilot Food Marts, Winn Dixie, and over 10,000 other locations nationwide. Core-Mark International has taken note of Nicotek’s growth and unparalleled products, and has therefore deemed Nicotek a preferred vendor. In addition, Nicotek is now shipping Metro products to H.T. Hackney, and other very large national distributors, as well as Core-Mark, furthering their capabilities for quick retail expansion.
“Having our distribution footprint expand into companies like Core-Mark, H.T. Hackney, and other large national distributors, only strengthens our position in the marketplace,” says John Wiesehan III, Nicotek’s Vice President of Sales. “With partners like these, the opportunities for our company and our products are endless, and there is a clear reason why we have partners like this. We continue to react quickly to market conditions, provide top of the line display and merchandising options, and of course, offer a quality product at a fair price; all things retailers and distributors are looking for,” continues Wiesehan.
Nicotek is displaying their entire line of products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this month. Nicotek will be introducing new products at CES, and all are invited. Nicotek will be releasing these new products in response to numerous consumer and retailer requests over the past year. The customers spoke and Nicotek is faithfully responding, according to their mission to provide the best customer service on the market. Nicotek will be located in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Hall at CES, in Booth Number 31677.
Retailers are also seeing that it has become common practice in the e-cigarette industry to produce exotic flavors. However, retailers and distributors have been more than relieved that Nicotek (nicotekecigs.com) has chosen to adhere to the suggested regulations, put forth by the FDA, as it relates to e-cigs, and therefore only offer tobacco and menthol flavors. Retailers and distributors have also found comfort in the fact that Nicotek makes no cessation or health claims about their products, according to these same FDA suggestions. Instead they promote Metro as the new alternative to tobacco smoking, making retailers and distributors feel safe about promoting and selling Metro products.
The team at Nicotek prides themselves in providing excellent customer service and will continue to give retailers, distributors, and consumers a brand and company that they can trust!
