"I've watched the requests for our product samples come through and have watched all the work that Gray Cat has done to help us launch this new product into the c-store channel; I am very much looking forward to getting out to NACS to get face-to-face time with all of Gray Cat's category manager contacts. Without Gray Cat's assistance, I don't feel that we would be nearly as successful at this show as I feel we will be. Thanks for helping us with what I feel will be a very successful launch into the c-store and grocery channels."
