An Italian company manufacturing food and beverage bar counters seeks commercial agents and/or a distributor to distribute its product abroad, especially in countries covered by its patent (EU, USA and China).
The product is easily transportable and can be rapidly assembled (less than 1 minute) thanks to its innovative and licensed design and its patented interlocking system. Its main advantages are: portability (small dimension), ease of use, solidity and customizability.
An Italian company founded in 2015 realizes professional food and beverage bar counters that can be easily transported and rapidly assembled thanks to its innovative and licensed design. The company’s objective is to innovate in the sector of event furniture.
The team that created the product and owns the patent is composed of an architect and a designer with a strong experience in furniture sector in Italy and abroad and a surveyor with more than 10 years’ experience in craftsmanship sector.
Organizing either a fair or a public/or private event in which food and beverages will be served requires buying or renting desks that must be assembled with screws and bolts (time consuming activity). To solve this problem, the company has developed a very simple product, a new folding bar counter fast and easy to open.
Its innovative and licensed design derives from a specific research which lead to a patented interlocking system providing customers with the following benefits :
- portability - very small dimension of the product when it is closed which allows to save space and costs of both transportation and storage;
- ease of use as it can be assembled in less than 60 seconds by one single person;
- solidity, as it can bear a pressure of 54 kgs;
- and finally the design that can be customized on the basis of customer’s needs.
The target customers are mainly catering industry, garden-users and outdoor design enthusiasts, wineries or breweries. Market studies show that the catering industry (wedding, buffet, appetizers organisation,…) is growing very fast. At the moment, the product has already been sold in France and UK.
The company wishes to expand its market potentialities and is looking for new commercial partners like a commercial agent for instance or a distributor to sell the product abroad, especially in countries covered by the patent (European Union, USA and China). The final objective would be to reach a franchise agency agreement in order to market and sell the product abroad under the trademarked name. The organisation of the international cooperation foresees a production task force to answer to the demand coming from abroad on the basis of the distributor/commercial agency country of origin.
The advantages and innovations of this product in comparison to other competitors are the following: it is easy to transport as it can be folded and thanks to its small size it is not bulky; moreover, it has a high portability and solidity and finally it has both a professional use and an elegant design. The product is very easy and fast to install (in less than 60 seconds by one single person).
The patent covers European Union, USA, China and Australia.
The company seeks partners able to create a sales and communication network to increase its product sales abroad. Therefore it is interested in commercial or distribution services agreements.
