Today’s story is about an innovative brand that saw a niche that needed to be cleaned up. Or as he says, “Needed to have the nasties removed.” Today’s story is about an innovative brand that is breathing life into something that we grew up with, something very iconic. A product that was very popular and still is today. The best part is that they found an innovative way to make this product healthy, gluten free, and tasty. 

During this episode, we talk a lot about not only the category, but we also talk about strategies this brand can leverage to get their product on more retailer shelves and into the hands of more shoppers. Creative strategies to help this brand carve out not only a unique niche in the salty snack category where there’s a lot of competition, but also get dual placement.
