Cascadia Managing Brands partnered with Hint after the company's first year in business, when it was only being sold in select California stores. Cascadia Managing Brands was appointed the Brand Management company for Hint and developed and implemented a sales plan, in conjunction with the Hint team, to expand Hint's reach nationally by using natural food brokers, DSD distributors and natural and specialty food distributors.
Cascadia was also responsible for establishing a DSD beverage distribution network that included NIDA (Northeast Independent Distributor Association) distributors. Cascadia Managing Brands introduced Hint in New York City through a DSD beverage distributor.
Successful key account placements include Whole Foods, Sprouts, The Fresh Market and other key retailers.
