Hot Stuff Foods Launches President's Club

Rewards retailers for their foodservice programs

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Hot Stuff Foods has launched a new program, the President's Club, to reward retailers who are passionate about their food solutions program.

According to Hot Stuff Chairman, President and CEO Des Hague, the President's Club is an incentive program in which retailers can increase profitability and reward employees who are committed to growing foodservice.

The President's Club, said Hague is our way of expressing our gratitude to our loyal franchise partners. Essentially, we are thanking them for their ongoing [image-nocss] growth and commitment with free equipment and vouchers for free POP materials, as well as personal incentives such as trips to major sporting events and adventure expeditions to personal items.

He said the incentives are based on performance with retailers striving to reach three levels of excellence: Elite status, Silver Elite and Gold elite.

The more demand we create, the more profitable our franchises will be, said Hague. In turn, we both will benefit from this growth.

Hague said that in addition to everything mentioned, retailers could also qualify for a specified rebate, dependent on their 2006 growth over 2005. Many of Hot Stuff's more than 1,600 units are already close to all three levels of the President's Club. We see this as a way for our franchisees to quickly go from great to extraordinary, said Hague, and we are committed to helping our partners grow exponentially and then celebrating by awarding them some well-deserved incentives. The President's Club is one of the most aggressive customer centric programs in commerce, not just foodservice!
