“I took over our sampling program in Texas this past year and I’ve been very happy with what First Crush has done. They’re constantly innovating and understanding the business better and trying to find better ways.”
Mike’s Hard Lemonade
“For the past four years, hands down, your team at First Crush has been absolutely fantastic to work with! My customers are located throughout the state of Texas, and therefore I need demos conducted in all major markets. You all share the same geographic region, which is huge and hard to come by. On top of that, your crew is very streamlined and quick to communicate upcoming events and event performance. They’re also exceptionally reliable, informed, and engaging with customers. Whenever suppliers inquire as to who I recommend to conduct demos, my response is always First Crush. Thank you for all you have done to grow my business, and cheers to many more amazing demos down the road!”
