How to Become a Distributor for Indomie Noodles
The first step to become an Indomie distributor is to fill out an application form on the company’s website.

After you’ve filled out the form, click on the ‘Get Started’ button and take the next steps.

Sourcing locations for your business

Many business people will want to locate their new business close to shopping malls or places where people buy instant noodles.

If you’re looking for a safe, familiar location, just about any shopping mall in Lagos or Abuja will be perfect. However, it’s not necessary to find a mall or shopping center where you can serve people directly. You can also open an outlet in a retail shop.

The 5 Steps of Success

Indomie is Nigeria’s leading instant noodles brand. The brand has been introduced to the world by Mr. Innocent Arhin, the visionary man behind N500 billion group, AriseBank Plc.

The brand is ranked among the top 5 favorite brands of the Nigerian households. It is the largest instant noodles brand in Africa. In addition, the brand has enjoyed immense recognition in the Nigerian economy and is still highly ranked amongst other countries.

The Indomie brand is famous for its delicious and quick preparation with the typical authentic taste, popularly called the ‘Arisean Original Flavor’. The brand boasts of an innovative recipe of sauce blend for the instant noodles, combined with fast cooking to produce perfect product.

Sourcing Good Locations for Your Business
It’s advisable to start your business in an area with a lot of consumers. If you’re looking to get into the business of distributing Indomie, then the Lagos State is the ideal place to be. Lagos is also the capital and commercial center of Nigeria. It’s also the most populated city in Africa and one of the most populated cities on Earth.

Advertising Your Products

Getting into the business of distributing Indomie Noodles is not something that can be done overnight. So, you’ll need to put in a lot of work to ensure your business succeeds.

If you’re serious about starting a business that sells Indomie Noodles, then you’ll need to hire a professional company to help you promote your products to consumers.

Advertising Your Products
The Indomie Noodles company is very strict about advertising and putting up advertisements in magazines and on billboards is frowned upon. If you are an entrepreneur who is tired of not making money from advertising, then read on.

Get Your Place

If you are planning to start an Indomie distributorship, then it is advised that you obtain a warehouse location for storing the products. If you live in a big city, then consider buying an empty warehouse, then start a small inventory of noodles and a minimum of 5 sales assistants. Your choice of location would depend on your area of operation.

Get Staff

If you are a company owner who is interested in setting up an Indomie distributorship, then you need to employ people to be in charge of selling your products.

Appointing Staff Members
What kind of people will you need to run your business effectively? Here are a few of the kind of people you’ll need:

Licensed Food Business Manager – in Nigeria, the minimum requirement for this job is a Graduate Diploma in Business Studies. If you’re not a graduate, you can use your Higher National Diploma or Certificate in any applicable discipline. You can also use your GCE Ordinary or Advanced Level certificates, if you have them.

Pre-qualified Distributors – these distributors will help you source good locations for your business. They will also take care of ensuring quality in your products.

Training of the Wholesalers

Wholesalers who sell your products at your locations will be your backbone.

Handling Customer Complaints Promptly
Unfortunately, customer complaints are inevitable and to keep your customers happy, you need to take on the tough task of taking customer complaints seriously and resolving them quickly. You should also have a system in place where you track customer complaints by:

Replying promptly to customer inquiries or complaints

Call-backs to respond to specific customer inquiries

Accounting for customer complaints for future actions

It is imperative that you have proper documentation on file to back up any complaints. Making payments promptly and following up when customers complain should be your top priority.

Here are other critical steps to follow if you wish to become a distributor for Indomie.
