We have good financial terms with suppliers and even though we order on a weekly basis, most allow us to pay in 30 days. ??Banks – Our banks extend credit terms to Kathy when we are launching a new store and around the holiday season when we need to purchase more product than normal. Kathy also sometimes uses her credit line during the summer slow months to help carry the stores through. We have a great credit rating and relationship with our local banks. ??Competition – Our competition locally is minimal and consists of a few specialty shops, major supermarket chains and some online gourmet shops. We think there is room for our stores in each of the marketplaces we are in and intend to move into. ??Kathy Kudler – Kathy not only has the vision of the organization, she has established the culture and is the main management person. She hires new people, fires those not working out, finalizes the inventory numbers, places the weekly orders and controls the finances making sure all of the vendors get paid.
