So, how did the Teddy Mountain® brand become recognized as a global total solution provider . . .
Largely through the vision, perseverance, and dedication of our exceptional team at Teddy Mountain® and our Partners. We do not settle for the middle ground in anything that we do. We are a group of innovative and visionary thinkers and dreamers, who work to develop exceptional quality and experience retail offerings, at value prices.
Teddy Mountain® has evolved over the last eight years to meet the demands of our various branded stores and also our independent client needs, Worldwide! We originally started off as a Kiosk Franchising Company selling Kiosk Packaged Systems to our customers. From there we created our Disneyeske style 3-Dimensional in-line store concept known as the Teddy Mountain® experience! We wanted to create a lasting and memorable experience like no other in the ‘unstuffed’ business today, from the ground up, focusing on a complete Thematic Retail environment. This was accomplished through the dedication and efforts of first understanding the nature of the business and interactive needs, and then applying professional design teams and technology to make our processes and experience the best it can be! Today, we own and Teddy Mountain® which is our parent ‘Retail’ operating brand, offer Teddy Zoo™ for wholesale and independent store needs, and also have an interest in LavaBlast Software for standalone or chain store software system needs. We operate Offices and Distribution Centers in several countries around the world, and are continuing to expand through our Master License & Distribution programs.
The primary reason we expanded from a Retail only business all the way through to being our own wholesale provider is simple. We had to gain control of different aspects of our business, which include control of our Designs, Quality, and Cost. We understand that if we are not the best provider, our stores and our Teddy Mountain® brand will suffer from lack of quality and service. This is how we are largely different from our competitors. We have an ongoing vested relationship with our buyers, as they just so happen to be our store owners! Therefore, we don't just buy what manufacturers have produced and hope it will sell. We actually take input from our clients and improve our products through and extensive design, sample, inspection process. We tell our manufacturers what we want, and have them do several iterations until it is just perfect in terms of fabrics, design, quality, and of course - Cost! This has a huge impact on the products we sell and the relationships we grow with our customers. If you have ordered from any other wholesaler, you know what we mean by that!
Our Company's Operating Officers all come from a retail / wholesale background, with strong technology and logistics experience. Technology is really what the company relies on to help reduce operating costs, which we pass on to retailers like you for lower cost of goods, better quality, and smoother control and ease of use of your business. An example of this is that we went from buying an off the shelf Point-of-Sale, which half heartedly met our needs, all the way to designing our own Point-of-Sale and Inventory Management Software to accommodate the very business we are in. Our Point-of-Sale is specifically designed for the “Stuff-Your-Own-Bear” industry and was programmed by the very best of Software Engineer's from Lavablast Software! All the specifications were driven by our company and the over 100 years of combined retail background we originally had to start this company with. We follow this same principal in all our interactive Retail Fixture designs, our highly detailed and creative product designs, and our integrated ecommerce ordering and logistics infrastructure. At Teddy Mountain®, we are an all-in-one 'go to' Service and Solutions Provider for the 'unstuffed' make-your-own Teddy Bear business!
In Summary, we are a very dedicated group of experienced professionals, with clear goals and mindset on this unique business. We either do it right, with our customers business needs in mind, or do not do it at all. We put all of our energy into this business, everyday, as do our clients. Our Retail background, the building and operating of stores, grounds us and allows us to appreciate the Retailer's perspective. Without this, we would be just another Retailer where the sales cycle ends after the sale. You will find that at Teddy Mountain® we will do everything possible to meet and exceed your customer expectations – everyday!
Be sure and ask your Retailers background they have . . .
Why Teddy Mountain®?
We are the premium worldwide retail and wholesale product provider in the "build your own bear" teddy bear stuffing industry for Master and Unit Licensed business owners. We have offices in 4 countries, distribution centers on 3 continents, and satisfied customers around the world!
We are different in that we believe we have no direct competition. Our only competitor is ourselves, in that we need to continually challenge ourselves to lower manufacturing and logistics costs, and reflect this in our value proposition to our customers. At Teddy Mountain®, we accomplish this by our commitment to;
Service– We are dedicated to providing exceptional service. Our staff is professionally trained and has provided Support Services for 1000’s of locations, and many Companies. Our Service Level commitments are realized by eliminating needless redundant processes and errors through the use of technology, automation, and efficient execution for our customers.
Value– Once the lease is signed, store owners really only have 2 major controllable expenses - product costs and payroll. Therefore, we offer China Direct costing, and web based efficient services. There is no profit in paying for excessive logistics, warehousing, or order/delivery inefficiencies, so we brought this in-house, streamlined & automated, and the end result is – greater profit potential for our customers!
Quality– This is assumed by the customer, but many can’t deliver. We can deliver as we own the end-to-end services required to be able to deliver. Quality and Safety are really the two most important differentiators we have to offer our customers.
Diversity– Stores and store owners are in business to make a profit. Your business can not be 1 dimensional and only sell teddy bears. Therefore, we offer related sale item opportunities at China Direct costs.
At Teddy Mountain® we are fully integrated in terms of design, manufacturing, logistics, distribution, and in-store retail technologies. We own our own manufacturing facilities & distribution centers, staff our own designers, and manage all logistics, including China Direct.
At Teddy Mountain®, our value proposition is to provide our customers with their unique selling proposition opportunities!
