Bestway Wholesale restructures field support

In a bid to bring together the convenience, franchise, company owned and new business functions into one place, Bestway Wholesale has announced a new structure for its field-based operations team.

The new team will combine the current Best-one and Costcutter field-based colleagues to support the groups 2,544 convenience stores. Dedicated Business Development Managers will provide expert retail support and focus on developing joint business plans with symbol retailers to help grow their business and maximise sales and margin.

The wholesaler is also doubling its new business team to attract new retailers to the group.

“Our teams have been working incredibly hard behind the scenes to harness the scale, talent and expertise across our newly combined convenience business,” said Mike Hollis, Bestway Wholesale Retail Director.

“Bringing together our teams is an important step in delivering our ambitious growth plans for both Bestway and our retailers. This also paves the way for us to deliver new initiatives for our retailers in the future and also enables us to extend to all our symbol retailers, some of the existing high calibre support we provide, such as access to our specialist store development team.”

“Providing targeted support that adds real value for retailers is a key element in the breadth of our offer and means that we are a genuine force in the market which can now meet the needs of any retailer.”
