About Us

Craig Thacker

We were founded in 2010 evolving from a venture that found itself in some trouble and revived to become a successful Convenience Store broker company. 

We were founded and continue to be operated by Craig & Shawn Thacker, a Father & Son team located in the Great Midwest! 

We have offices in Milwaukee, WI and Des Moines, IA. 

Craig Thacker has been in and around the business since 1986. He has experience in all phases of our business to include manufacturer, distributor and broker. Most of those years have been in the snack & food brokerage business.

Shawn Thacker has been involved since 2003. Shawn has worked both as a distributor and now an equal partner in Thacker & Associates and has been so since our inception in 2010.

We have been successful in the Convenience Store class of trade because we specialize in this class. We have long term relationships with our customer base both on the wholesale and the retail sides of our business. We are creative, thoughtful and ethical when it comes to our business practices. Our manufacturer partners and our customers know that we have their best interests at heart. We work diligently with manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer to ensure mutual satisfaction and success at retail. If all three parts of the equation function properly we have a happy and successful team of Manufacturer-Broker-Customer.
