Swisher Receives Convenience Store News 2022 Category Captain Award

Swisher consistently stands out in the industry for our people, products, trade programs, and importantly, for our attention and service to our supply partners. This year, we are honored once again by Convenience Store News as one of 16 recipients of their prestigious “2022 Category Captains” awards program  — and this is the eighth year we’ve won!

The Category Captains award program recognizes best case examples of retailer/supplier collaboration, and acknowledges  category leaders who have earned retailers’ trust and helped their customers grow sales and profits in the entire category.

The awards honor 16 suppliers in 17 product categories.  The judging criteria is based on several different aspects including:

  • Product innovation – creativity in merchandising, marketing, promotion and advertising
  • Use of consumer insights to drive entire category sales
  • Innovative and dynamic category management tools
  • Demonstrating commitment to meeting the specific needs of consumers
  • Efficiency lifting sales for the entire product category
  • Fact based evidence of market specific or account specific results

Swisher’s Success Simplified program, coupled with our focus on analytics, space planning, and execution were just a few of the many factors that led to our success in the OTP category and in the Captains Category recognition.
