WHY CHOOSE US?
Arizona continues to be one of the fastest growing markets in the US. As a premier resort destination with a strong presence in high tech, hospitality and military, Arizona is a rich environment for the disposables category. Arizona’s restaurant and food service business has become a year round industry producing a large volume of high-quality restaurants rivaling larger US markets. This flourishing, emergent market is comprised of many locally owned grocery chains, and a large processor manufacturing community which makes Arizona ripe for disposable packaging.
At the forefront for new ways of doing business, Northern CA has long been a leader on the world’s economic, scientific and cultural stage. Northern California’s economy is noted for being the de facto world leader in industries such as high technology, clean power, biomedical, government, and finance. Consisting of three major regional markets – the San Francisco Bay Area, the Sacramento-Capitol/Tahoe Area, and the fastest growing, Central Valley to Fresno Area, the population of the 48 northern counties has steadily risen to more than 14,000,000 people. Many cutting edge distribution, chain restaurant, processing, growing, and supermarket companies are headquartered in Northern CA. Sunlight Sales’ footprint in this market is rapidly expanding as we continue to produce record growth for our manufacturer partners in this region.
Southern California encompasses the counties from San Luis Obispo through San Diego, all the way to the border with Mexico. The area is a major economic center for both the state as well as for the entire U.S. and may be the largest economy in the country. With more than 22 million people, the area houses about 60% of California’s population. The economy is extremely diverse with heavy investment in tourism, the entertainment industry, automobile and aircraft manufacturing, sea ports, finance, aerospace, the biomedical field, and advanced education. Food service is a thriving business at almost all levels with many quick service restaurants (QSR) and family restaurant chains headquartered here as well as a strong food processing industry. This market is one which Sunlight Sales is counting on for rapid growth for our company and our manufacturing principals.
Denver, nicknamed the Mile-High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5,280 feet or 1,609.344 meters) above sea level, makes it one of the highest major cities in the United States. Denver is considered home to our corporate office providing a centralized support center for all of our customers and sales staff. Denver is consistently named as one of the top 10 healthiest states, making it the ideal market for restaurant startups which include Chipotle Mexican Grill, Quizno’s, Smashburger, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Noodles & Company, and Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard just to name a few. Our bustling cities are filled with art galleries, restaurants, bars and clubs, and breweries making Denver one of the best cities for singles. In 2013, Denver ranked No. 6 on Forbes’ list of the Best Places for Business and Careers. Due to the emergence of numerous, unique, multi-unit chain restaurants, as well as being home to several very successful foodservice broad liners, Sunlight Sales Colorado Division continues to be a powerhouse of growth for our manufacturer partners.
Nevada is home to Reno, the Eastern Shore of Lake Tahoe and the State Capitol- Carson City. The area’s leading industries are tourism, gaming, entertainment and agriculture. The tourism industry remains Nevada’s largest employer, with mining continuing to be a substantial sector of the economy as Nevada is the fourth largest producer of gold in the world. Sunlight Sales presence in Northern Nevada is expanding as our reputation grows due to our continued delivery of award winning service.
Oil and gas production, tourism, and federal government spending are important drivers of the New Mexico state economy. The most important services industry group in New Mexico is the community, business and personal services group. This group includes private health care, motels and ski resorts, engineering companies, private research laboratories and repair shops. Tourism brings billions of dollars into the economy each year.
Following close behind is the wholesale groceries, motor vehicles, petroleum products and retail discount and food stores sector. The results are an economy that is growing at a much faster rate than the rest of the overall US Market. The combination of outstanding climate, younger demographics, influx of high tech industry and increased focus on tourism bode well for New Mexico’s future. Sunlight Sales presence in New Mexico has created a boost to the bottom lines of the manufactures we serve in that market.
Although Utah has the smallest population of all of Sunlight Sales’ markets, its economy is growing more rapidly and in a more sustainable manner than virtually every other economy in the country. Community, business and personal services groups have proven to be the most valuable industries in Utah. This includes private health care, hotels and ski resorts, law firms, engineering companies, software development and repair shops. With a mighty economy, Utah is becoming a powerhouse in the disposables industry and expectations are that this will continue to grow within the next few years. Sunlight Sales and our partners will continue to be an integral player in the Utah region, growing along with the population and the economy.
