Silicon Valley beverage brand Pooki’s Mahi® announced today Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller wins national grocery chain with Komo Kitty℠ “Digital Beverage Supply Chain” services by passing savings like two-day shipping and consistent fulfillment to the end customers. Pooki’s Mahi gains new customers for custom Matcha Matcha Man® tea pods while growing repeat coffee subscribers.

Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Scrupulous attention to detail is used to determine qualified resellers requesting to sell Pooki’s Mahi® brands. Resellers whose customers’ profile do not match any of Pooki’s Mahi existing customer profiles will not be successful in selling our products. I refuse to partner with large customers that want ‘the next big thing.’ These type of customers will aggressively negotiate for cheaper pricing and growing their revenues. Larger customers do not care about increasing repeat customer business.”

“Retail customers are not great at selling luxury beverage products like Pooki’s Mahi 100% Kona coffee pods online because large retailers use traditional methods to market and sell new products. Often larger resellers could not provide big data sets so I can analyze the customer journey. Larger customers that rejected Pooki’s Mahi brands made very little progress tackling selling online. I decided to focus on growing Pooki’s Mahi top line revenue from existing customers and online retailers. I also decided on onboarding global retailers and customers whose primary focus was selling online. Big data analysis and customer feedback drive Pooki’s Mahi roadmap. The large customers headquartered in the US that previously rejected Pooki’s Mahi in 2013 want Pooki’s Mahi product catalog.” Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller further explains.

“Unlike marketplaces, Pooki’s Mahi does not charge a membership fee. Pooki’s Mahi® merchandise, fulfill and ship orders directly for global retailers, national grocery chains, luxury restaurants, and hotels. Pooki’s Mahi averages 45%-65% conversion rate for first-time customers. Pooki’s Mahi delivers shipments within two business days throughout the USA - Lower 48 states, Alaska and Hawaii. Today large customers have to use a 3rd party provider like Amazon Fulfillment (FBA) or InstaCart for last mile delivery. Customers pay delivery charges through memberships like Amazon Prime,” explains the high energy Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO.

The national grocery chain has 5000+ stores in over 35 states and was looking for brands with robust operational and supply chain metrics. The national grocery store was having a challenging time driving traffic to their marketplace. The national grocery store aims to achieve two goals for their marketplace. The primary goal is to provide existing customers access to hard-to-find beverage items like Pooki’s Mahi 100% Kona coffee pods, Kafpresso™ Kona Nespresso coffee pods, and Matcha Matcha Man® tea pods. The second goal is to increase exposure and drive traffic to newer food and beverage brands. Customers from the national grocery chain can purchase directly from the manufacturer or brand owner as opposed to a third party seller.

The marketplace created by the national grocery chain is the first to focus on smaller businesses manufacturing food, beverage, and wellness products. The national grocery chain selected smaller businesses that have deep roots in technology, grew their brands on social media, and have proof of exceeding standard operations metrics by owning their supply chain including sourcing materials, logistics partnerships, and distribution channels. The national grocery chain selected Pooki’s Mahi for “Digital Beverage Supply Chain,” a model saving the chain from building a fulfillment and distribution center.

Pooki’s Mahi landed the national grocery chain in 2018 and has been gathering feedback from the national chain’s customers. Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller regularly provides insights on product discoverability, using social media for brand awareness and digital marketing back to the marketplace team.

The Silicon Valley technology company is focused on manufacturing naturally grown single-origin 100% Kona coffee certified organic and teas in recyclable or bio-based pods. Pooki’s Mahi utilizes a proprietary supply chain framework created by Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller to manufacture expensive coffee pods or Matcha Matcha Man® tea capsules in a just-in-time model.
