Price, Product, Promotion, Placement

The four “P’s” of selling good is a universal practice. You have to have a product, place it on the shelves, promote it and price it so it sells. Luckily for you, your commissary is adapting quickly to this concept but also turning up the heat. Our new marketing department …
