"The best thing about Panamar is the training and support over these years."
Paniacos is a family company that has spent four years offering its customers a bakery with a different look and exceptional service. Its owner, Arturo Ruiz, tells us about his beginnings and the role of Panamar during the whole process: “I'm an industrial engineer, so I was very ignorant of the sector, but Panamar had supported us a lot during the whole process”.What began as a personal enterprise has become a leader in bakery in Valencia, which now has seven stores. His success is due to his passion for the business. "What we like most is dealing directly with customers, being able to respond to what they want, offer them new things, give them personalised treatment and a product quality comparable to what is in the market." From the beginning, Paniacos trusted Panamar to offer the best to its customers: “I began to work with them four years ago and the advice they gave me was the impulse necessary to make everything I now have real”. The beginnings, like in all the business, were not easy, which is why it was important to have a reliable supplier from the start who is concerned about you. “It seems that you're going to open the doors of your business and you're going to fill the premises, but it's not true. You need to fight and keep fighting and I can say that Panamar has always been there with us, solving the everyday problems that come up." Panamar makes available to its customers such as Paniacos its staff of salespeople and telephone operators, who are responsible for calling the customers every week so they are never lacking anything. "It's quite a rapid service, which is fundamental for small businesses nowadays: Are you short of something today? They'll bring it tomorrow, even if it's not your order day."
I'd recommend Panamar not only to friends, but also to people who are starting out in the sector, because they have really lent us a hand, not only as suppliers, but also something moreWould they recommend Panamar? Arturo is clear about it: I'd recommend Panamar not only to friends, but also to people who are starting out in the sector, because they have really lent us a hand, not only as suppliers, but also something more To have a selection that is extended every month with novel products is also admirable: "It's a great relief to have people who have been here a long time and who know what people like. Every month, Panamar's Marketing department new proposals to offer them to our customers." Panamar has accompanied Paniacos in the sweetest moments, but also in the bitter ones. "I remember one time we had to organise the catering for a three-day concert in Valencia. They did not warn us that at night they cut the electric circuit at four o'clock in the morning and, therefore, all the frozen product in the walk-in freezers was going to go to waste. We called Jesus, Panamar's salesman, to tell him to come and help us. And just as well. He brought a lorry and a couple of people and we were able to save half of the product.”
