Doing Business with H-E-B

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Houston Center SBDC

Registration is no longer available.


H-E-B is one of the nation’s largest independently owned food retailers with more than 400 stores and 116,000 Partners (employees). They buy millions of dollars of goods and services every year. Many of their vendors are small and minority owned and from the great state of Texas. If you have dreamed about doing business with a company like H-E-B then don’t miss this must-attend workshop. You will discover what it takes to become a vendor.

As an added bonus you will hear about H-E-B’s Primo Picks “Quest for Texas Best;” an opportunity for food and beverage (non-alcoholic) suppliers to showcase their uniquely Texas products and win cash prizes. Attendees will receive pertinent information about the H-E-B Quest for Texas Best contest, and specific instructions on how to complete the contest application and ensure their products are ready for retail shelves.
