The source for products and information for the Canadian General Merchandise Industry Will Keep Your Customer Coming Back See our ad on page 67 ® “T he package we have designed for the Canadian market is to help people quit smoking,” said Joe Deighan, President of JJuice, a Utah company that focuses on providing healthy e-liquids to people who want to get healthy by kicking cigarettes. JJuice recently engaged two Canadian distributors to provide Canadian retailers and consumers with the same choices U.S. stores and end users have long enjoyed. “We have a 98% reorder rate,” said Deighan, “so the businesses that provide JJuice will notice a very solid customer retention.” cont’d on p. 14 www.wholesaleimport.com see our ad on page 2 www.cottagecountrycandies.com 1-877-787-0777 DistantShoresTrading.ca 613-925-1818 See our ad on page 17 403-285-1697 www.kdkwholesale.ca See our ad on page 34 & 35 See our ad on page 9 & 11 See our ad on page 51 LESS HEAT.

JJuice Will Keep Your Customer Coming Back cont’d from front cover JJuice was born from Deighan’s desire for a healthy way to quit smoking. “We started with the mindset to provide the absolute highest quality e-liquid. We don’t dilute any of our blends with extraneous oils or distilled waters,” he said. They use the purest forms of VGPG and all ingredients are USP, food-grade approved, certified, and GMO free. “The nicotine we use is derived naturally in its purest from the tobacco plant. Nicotines come from all over the world; some are noticeably better than others,” he said. Their introductory package, created specifically for Canadian retailers, is both generous and comprehensive. It begins with 200 bottles encompassing ten flavors in four nicotine strengths: five bottles of each flavor in each strength. “Then we add a display, some professional posters, and a very attractive flavor menu explaining the profiles in both French and English.” The eye-catching, space saving display includes slide-out channels so the employee can easily hand the bottle to a customer. It has a topper with an ocean scene on the front, and value proposition, sales points on the back. “The ocean scene invokes the freedom of being free from cigarettes and reflects our belief in an active lifestyle,” said Deighan. “The value points help the employee sell the product and explain that JJuice is organic, GMO free, very high quality and compatible with all tanks.” JJuice’s Utah creation facility is 11,000 square feet, 3,500 of which are batch rooms containing over 3,000 pounds of very highend, stainless steel equipment. “This helps us be very precise not only with the batching, but with the filling, plugging, capping, labelling, tamper proofing and lot marking for traceability,” said Deighan. “We purchase the highest quality, raw ingredients, and in our manufacturing process, ensure our procedures adhere to the highest quality standards.” That includes both oxygenating and steeping the e-liquid to bring out the full flavor profiles. The result is smooth flavors that leave the initial traditional ones far behind. For instance, the menthol smoker who becomes curious about the strawberry cream. “After they try it they don’t go back to their menthol or tobacco flavors, because it’s cleaner, it’s tastier, it’s newer,” said Deighan. “And six months later, when they smoke a menthol cigarette with their friends, they say ‘This is awful! That strawberry cream stuff I vape is much better. I‘m done smoking. ‘” 14 ▲ The company sells wholesale, but likes to interact with their endusers. JJuice routinely goes to their U.S. customer vape shops and sets up for a few hours to help out the shop owner and get consumer feedback. “We have a lot of people who have said vaping has saved their marriage,” said Deighan, who firmly believes that because vaping is part of the digital age, analog cigarettes will eventually be a thing of the past. “I know we’re a manufacturer and we deal primarily B2B, but I love hearing from the construction worker who spends his hard-earned money on JJuice and why he chose our product.” JJuice is part of Utah’s advisory board currently drafting the state’s e-cigarette bill. They recognize the compliment and take their role seriously. Said Deighan, “We’re making sure to protect the industry and protect the consumers, because we know people who have quit smoking cigarettes feel very passionate about vaping.” In addition to Deighan, JJuice boasts seven others in the company who have quit smoking by vaping the company’s flavorful nicotine gradations. “A lot of the passion in this industry comes from being liberated from that cigarette addiction, and having done it successfully by using a tank, a vape pen, and some JJuice. Vaping is a phenomenal leap in technology for public health.” Ultimately, they want consumers to love the product, because that’s what helps retailers see customer retention on the store level. The posters that come with the package, like the display case topper, reflect the company philosophy: have fun. Be yourself. Be authentic. Enjoy yourself. “We believe in promoting positivity. It’s the liberation from cigarettes and feeling better about yourself, being able to live more actively,” said Deighan. “We’re very optimistic and positive about the journey we’re on and the product we provide.” Minimum order: •  To receive posters, flavor profile menu, and display case with topper and sales points: 200 bottles in preconfigured flavor and nicotine strength allotment •  Alternative option: 100 bottles of configuration, but does not include package extras For more information: B.O.B.
