TAAT® Chief Executive Officer Michael Saxon commented, “I anticipate the value proposition of TAAT® will stand out at the NACS Show 2022, as a no-nicotine and no-tobacco alternative to cigarettes at a lower price point that is already winning over adult smokers in our focus markets across the United States. This year we are emphasizing how retailers can enjoy considerably better profit margins from selling TAAT® compared to tobacco products. I am particularly excited about this event because we have Brent Taylor and Brad Call from B&B Beyond (announced in our September 13, 2022 press release) working with us at the show, and I believe we can benefit considerably from Brad’s experience as the former Chairman of the NACS organization. We look forward to kicking off the show this weekend and interfacing with top convenience management executives from the U.S. and worldwide.”
