Interesting Facts: Premium’s founder, Ron Travers was a 28 year veteran of Nabisco. In the mid 80s, Nabisco was acquired and Ron found himself downsized. A family man to his core, Ron created a value-based company that he could believe in and one that would help he and his wife support their four children.
Recognizing a need from his many years in retail, Ron founded a national broker services network that would match skilled retail personnel with primarily food brokers who wanted their products more effectively merchandised and sold in stores. This first iteration of Premium operated out of Ron’s Chesterfield, Missouri home.
Soon, Ron discovered that performance would be greatly improved by employing, training and managing his own workforce. He named the new company “Premium Retail Services” as a tip of the hat to the Nabisco saltine crackers he had sold for so many years.
Today fully owned and operated by sons Brian and Kevin Travers, Premium has grown into a leader in our industry without losing the family first culture that Ron created. A who’s who of clients ranging from Walmart to Best Buy to Walgreens, Samsung to Lenovo and many other household brands partner with Premium at retail.
