Chevalo and Monique Search for a Product Supplier
On Episode 19 of This is Small Business, Andrea talks about sourcing your products with Chevalo & Monique Wilsondebriano, co-founders of Charleston Gourmet Burger. More specifically they dive into shipping and fulfillment considerations you should make when you aren’t manufacturing your own product. Chevalo & Monique discuss where to find suppliers when you’re first starting out, questions to ask while vetting them, and how to keep your customer’s trust through a solid relationship with your supplier – even if it means paying a little extra. Next, Serguei Netessine, Senior Vice Dean for Innovation and Global Initiatives and Dhirubhai Ambani Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Pennsylvania, fills us in on all the different types of suppliers and what you need to consider when choosing one – like thinking about the returns process, price, service, and shipping time. Join Andrea as she fills out another chapter of her small business playbook.
