THE VISIONARY BEHIND ROUTE TO MARKET
Craig Kodish has spent a successful 35 years in the consumer goods industry with extensive experience in beverage sales and marketing. After obtaining a degree in economics from the University of Florida and working for companies in the beverage industry like Southern Wine and Spirits and MHW, Craig started to notice a change in the beverage industry. Rapid consolidation on both wholesaler and supplier sides made it harder for wholesalers to focus on “building brands.” After this revelation, Craig created Route to Market, providing help to people in the industry brand their products in ways they never have before. With a strong work relationship and passion to make something great, Route to Market is able to help turn dreams into reality.
