Growing Your Supplier Business Through Strong Partnerships

A Saucy Supplier Story
Brett Thompson and Heath Hall combined their love of barbecue and entrepreneurship to start Pork Barrel BBQ, a barbecue sauce and rub supplier business. Brett and Heath will be the first to tell you their business was built on relationships, including the relationships they developed with key vendors and larger retailers.

In order to partner with larger retailers, Brett and Heath needed to help show that their company was a reliable and trustworthy business capable of handling large orders for their product. They turned to Credibility Concierge® and received a supplier-specific business credit expert to help them impact and manage their business credit scores and ratings, allowing Brett and Heath to showcase their company’s financial stability and credibility to others. Today, Pork Barrel BBQ sells their taste bud thrilling BBQ sauce and rubs in 600+ locations nationwide.  Watch the video to learn more.

“It is so important to have good partners both within your business and outside of your business. Ultimately the only way you’re able to grow and succeed is in partnership with others.”
