As a vendor, you can choose whether or not to enlist a third party for in-house demonstrations. There are many points to consider when making this decision, including location, pricing, training, and staff availability. Costco has 2 third-party companies that they recommend, both of which will abide by and adhere to all of Costco policies and standards. Additionally, all staff members will be food safety certified. If you choose to elect a third party for demo staffing, you will be charged an hourly fee by the designated company. Often, using third-party staffers is the more convenient, but more costly choice. The best choice can vary based on your company’s specific goals.
