In late 2016, I started a new online retail business and took to Maker’s Row to help me find U.S.-based manufacturers. I submitted a project at 6:22 p.m. on February 4, 2017. At 10:05 a.m. the next morning, I received an email from Suuchi, the company’s owner, who was ready to setup a call to discuss next steps and get started. This is the kind of courtesy, speed, and professionalism you can expect from Suuchi (the company). I setup the call and haven’t looked back since. It was one of the defining moments in my company’s early success story because Suuchi has become such a trusted ally, partner, and friend who has been invaluable in helping me get my feet wet and off the ground. As soon as we got started, I was assigned a dedicated team manager, Toolsie, who is so trustworthy and dedicated that I would give him the keys to my penthouse in Vegas during Spring Break and know that everything would be just fine. I don't have a penthouse in Vegas, but it’s fun to pretend like I do and I really would give the keys to Toolsie. Walter was assigned to the project to create the design for my product and he's so awesome and knowledgeable that I don't want to work with anyone else for any of my products. Seriously, I cannot say enough about how great the Suuchi team is. They are all so knowledgable and caring that it’s not as if you simply “hired someone” to manufacture your items, you feel as if you’re part of a family who truly cares about helping you succeed, and that feeling is so incredibly valuable, especially in the early stages of business when times can be tough. So many times it's easy to get bogged down with dollars and cents (the bottom line), but in the end, it's the businesses that dedicate the necessary time and energy to establishing and maintaining their core values that truly stand out from the crowd and become wildly successful, I think. Those companies can clearly and precisely answer the question "why" people should partner with them and not someone else. Suuchi is amazing at this. From the dedication to quality to the customer service to the family atmosphere to the genuine interest in helping their clients absolutely kill it, Suuchi provides so many valuable intangibles not found with other suppliers that you would do yourself a disservice by not at least giving them a shout to see what they might be able to do for you. I dedicated some time to write this unreasonably long and detailed review not only because I think the Suuchi team deserves it, but also because I'm hoping to provide at least some of the immense value the Suuchi team has provided to me and my budding brand.
