Share Article

Mr. Checkout Distributors mentioned as the path to market for many Shark Tank products on ABC's Shark Tank. Take a more in depth look into how they select what products they will work with in their closed review meetings.

As mentioned on ABC's Shark Tank as a path to market for new products, Mr. Checkout review meetings are highlighted as the way a new product can reach independent retailers and big box chain stores as well. Mr. Checkout is a network of independent distributors, full-line grocery distributors and wagon-jobbers. Their distributors service approximately 35,000 - 45,000 stores around the country. Mr. Checkout Distributors have been behind the launch of huge consumer brands such as Keurig, 5 Hour Energy, Playboy, Maybelline and many others.

Mr. Checkout reviews new products every other week during it's product review meeting where they discuss the marketability, consumer demand and market readiness of each product line. This system is all streamlined through their online platform where both the distributors and suppliers are given transparency into each step of the process.

Suppliers working with Mr. Checkout are vetted for their abilities to work with independent distributors and often given the opportunity to speak directly to the President of Mr. Checkout, Joel Goldstein. Mr. Goldstein explains the Mr. Checkout review process and discusses any concerns that were brought up by either the executive team or distributors about their product during that review process. "It is our goal to make sure that every product that takes their time and energy to approach us for distribution is given a fair evaluation. Sometime's it's the strange products that we introduce to the distributors that do extremely well!" said Joel Goldstein.

Distributors in the Mr. Checkout network number over 1,000 and stay actively engaged with the company through a distributor only website portal and via weekly email communications with the Mr. Checkout staff. The wagon jobbers and distributors use the company to find the next hot new product that will be hitting the shelf as Mr. Checkout is able to see consumer trends well in excess of 6 months before the demand is seen in the stores.

Being able to supply over 1,000 information hungry distributors, wagon jobbers and wholesalers with a flow of new products is a task that only Mr. Checkout seems to be suited to handle.
