Re: Info

Man, in any other forum this would have escalated to shenanigans quite quickly... Wish I could help, but I just wanted to point that out.

Re: Info

what can I say, i don't want to ship my own nuts all over the world, plus the thought of handling my nuts before shipping is just troublesome.

seriously, had a kick but idea that needs launched by january at the latest, but I need a nut dropshipper to pull it off.

actually, I know of a certain cat pic that would work.

I did google walnut dropshippers, to no avail, still working that angle.

Hey Kurt -

Not sure the best way to locate the wholesaler in this industry but, perhaps, try calling other vendors who distrbute the product and ask for their source?

For example - there is this place in Philly - Nuts to You - around 7th and Walnut. I would call a place like that, explain that you are trying to get something started and see if they will give you their source name/contact.

I would definately make it clear that you are not going to be in their market (and therefore not directly competing with them).

I have done some research this way, in the past, and was pleasantly surprised by how willing other small business owners were to help a complete stranger, who was trying to put together a plan.

Also might want to call places like this and see if they will work with you....

Good luck.

If you cant find one, maybe contact one of the smaller businesses and try to work a deal out.

thanks everyone. I am going to start with z5's approach. I remembered I know a small nut retailer in my area, and I know where their source is so I know thier costs. I think I will approach them to see if they are interested in another revenue stream. We shall see.
