Kahiki Foods, Inc., zany creators of bold and exciting frozen Asian food, announces Schraad & Associates wins the coveted Gongji Challenge Award. Schraad & Associates, an Oklahoma City based regional, full service food broker represents the Kahiki brand in the Central US, covering an 11-state area.
To win the Gongji Challenge, a broker must:
- Drive the Asian frozen food category
- Power up Kahiki sales growth
- Excite retailers about the category in their assigned territory
Dan Kennedy, Kahiki’s Sales Sensei, proclaimed, “We are really excited and incredibly optimistic about what the Schraad team accomplished in 2017 and what is coming in 2018 and beyond. The Schraad team brings us tremendous local market knowledge and customer expertise that will propel the Kahiki brand to enormous future success in the Central US.” Bill Schraad, Jr, President & CEO of Schraad & Associates added, “We think we have the right business model to help our suppliers build very successful brands in our markets. We are grateful for the opportunity to represent Kahiki, and look forward to tremendous success in the future.”
“Partnering with great brokers drives growth in the Asian frozen food category, propelling the Kahiki brand to its rightful place at the top of the market. Unlike other lackluster frozen food sales, Asian frozen food brands have been strong, and the Kahiki brand is outstanding,” said Martin Kelly, the Big Kahuna at Kahiki. According to Kahiki research, the Asian frozen category in food stores is growing at 3 times the rate for the frozen food category in general. “Consumer interest and market trends are there for sustained long term growth for the Asian category. By partnering with brokers like Schraad & Associates, retailers can capitalize on this category growth opportunity with the Kahiki brand,” added Kelly.
There is a reason Kahiki is rapidly becoming a force in the market. The company's portfolio of award winning, 100% Natural products include saucy meals, savory side dishes, and crunchy snacks. Retail sales have exploded by over the last 52 weeks, and Kahiki is driving the growth in the Asian frozen food category.
