“Topicz has been my convenience store distributor for almost 15 years. I have been extremely happy with the outstanding level of service that I have received from them, and I have referred several convenience store owners to Topicz. Over the years, I have established wonderful relationships with the staff at Topicz and look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come.” – Kirit (Kenny) Patel, Mt. Repose Mini Mart
“In this competitive business environment, retailers must form strategic alliances with their suppliers to minimize costs, to have quality products in their stores, and to ensure timely and accurate deliveries. These alliances must be built on trust, communication, and on an understanding that each party will benefit from the other’s success. Topicz has proven to be an excellent strategic partner. The quality of their people, customer service, and delivery performance is beyond reproach. We are happy we made the switch to Topicz and look forward to further developing our strategic alliance.” – Steve Lapke, Vice President Operations, G.Sharpco, Inc.

We are happy in our relationship with Topicz.” – Crown Tobacco, Inc.
I wanted to take a moment to thank Topicz for the outstanding service that you have given to the five Blue Pantry stores that I operate. I have been doing business with Topicz for more than twenty years and during that time, many competitors have approached me to switch companies but none could compete with your services and prices. I have learned over time to stick with a winner. Having partners like you make operating a successful business a little easier. – Blue Pantry Stores
“I’ve been in the convenience store business for over thirty-five years. It has been my extreme pleasure to have Topicz as my grocery wholesaler for the past nine years and I can attest to the fact that anyone would be hard pressed to find a better wholesale house. If you’re looking for a wholesaler that has the following: a wide range of products, competitive pricing, minimal out of stocks, the most friendly staff imaginable and a place where service is the #1 priority – then give Topicz the chance to earn your business. You won’t be disappointed! I can’t imagine doing business with anyone else.” – A. Dee Griffith, Fast lane Food Mart
“Our company has been working with Topicz as our grocery distributor for over 15 years and it has been an excellent partnership.

Topicz is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to improve not only their product selection but also the customer experience. I have and I will continue to recommend Topicz to anyone who is looking for a partner to help grow and expand his or her business to the next level.” – Jason R Wittekind, Chief Financial Officer / Treasurer, Triumph Energy Corporation
