APPLYING FOR CORE-MARK CURATED

WHO CAN APPLY FOR CORE-MARK CURATED?

Core-Mark Curated is open to start-up/emerging brands that currently do not have distribution in the convenience store retail industry with any distribution company. Certain submissions will be taken into consideration for start-up/emerging brands who independently distribute to a small number of stores or if a brand is only in a single brand of convenience stores not in our distribution channel currently. In 2022, we will also be accepting submissions from current Core-Mark vendors who are only located in a single OpCo, looking to expand their distribution.

WHY SHOULD I APPLY FOR CORE-MARK CURATED?

As a leader in convenience store distribution, we understand our industry. With our knowledge and expertise in marketing, distribution, merchandising, and operational areas of the business we want to help start-up/emerging brands break into the convenience store channel. Core-Mark Curated offers classes, forums, workshops and provides mentorship and thought leadership to businesses and brands interested in learning more about convenience store distribution
