Partnering with TOL made us nervous since we don’t give an exclusive, but it’s been fantastic! WE were having trouble growing our brand and distribution in Canada. They’ve truly partnered with us and act as if they own part of our company. They put their own money into promotions, they’re proactive and they’re fun to deal with. We went from about 10,000/yr to about 500,000/yr. We LOVE TOL!
Doug Renfro, President, Renfro Foods Inc.
