Cookbooks can be incredibly profitable if they are assertively marketed and distributed, that is. Wimmer Cookbooks provides many behind-the-scenes services you need to operate the business of your cookbook and meet, if not exceed, your expected "return on investment."
Wimmer Cookbook Distribution
As the nation's oldest distributor of Community Cookbooks, Wimmer purchases books from publishers at a discounted rate for sale to retailers and buyers across the country. Among the Wimmer distribution list, are large chain bookstores such as Barnes and Noble, Borders and Waldenbooks and other buyers such as Ingram, Baker & Taylor, QVC, gift stores, gourmet stores, wholesale clubs, "dot com" Web sites, and catalog companies across the country.
Fulfillment & Drop Shipment Services
Wimmer Cookbooks offers optional fulfillment and drop shipment services to all our publishers. By shipping retail and wholesale book orders directly from our warehouse to the customer or distributor, we save publishers the cost of extra shipping (and a little time, too). The easytouse forms are available at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coast to Coast Catalog
Each year, Wimmer Cookbooks introduces an updated color catalog, highlighting the book titles currently in distribution. It is mailed to our accounts across the country, and therein, is a tremendous resource for generating new cookbooks sales. The catalog is also an integral part of our Web site, as it provides our publishers with worldwide exposure.
Wimmer Cookbooks representatives attend major gift and book shows at various times and locations throughout the year. These shows are an excellent marketing opportunity; and for that reason, publishers in Wimmer distribution are invited to attend and promote their book, as space permits.
To all Wimmer Cookbooks publishers, we offer storage in our climate controlled warehouse, adjacent to our manufacturing facility.
