Hershey has upgraded its online Solutions portal for retailers, allowing convenience store decision makers to quickly capitalize on new product launches and shopper trends.
The company says that registered retailers are now able to increase product speed to shelf with the time-saving capability to place orders.
Hershey Solutions is available to all retailers 24-hours a day, 7 days a week as a go-to resource for the latest insights-focused planograms and promotional program offerings. The tool also gives retailers access to expert merchandising strategies and shopper insights—anytime, anywhere and from any Internet-connected device.

“We want to see our convenience store partners continue to grow and are proud to be investing in capabilities that will help them drive trips, build baskets and ultimately maximize sales and profits,” said Gwen Andrews, Hershey’s senior manager, sales planning C-store. “Our Hershey Solutions portal allows us to help thousands of retailers each day, providing them access to category management insights, merchandising, new product news and now online ordering.”
For contracted retailers, Hershey Solutions provides current updates to their Retailer Rewards rebate status as well as identifies compliance gaps with the click of a mouse or tap of a screen. And, with the addition of the new online ordering capability, registered Retailer Rewards program visitors now have the ability to act immediately on these compliance voids, the company said.
“It is exciting to see Hershey Solutions continue to grow and there are even more profit-driving business tools that we’ll be rolling out in the near future,” said Andrews. “The online ordering capability is the first of many exciting additions to come.”
