Income Opportunity

Do you have the entrepreneurial spirit? If you are looking to start your own local business, or expand product selection of your existing business, becoming an Independent Reseller or Independent Fisherman through Red’s Fresh Fish may be the answer. It’s a great way to create an extra income source that may grow into a full-time business.

(Note: It is not required for existing businesses to join this opportunity to order and resell our fish. See ‘Terms & Conditions‘ -> ‘Terms For Resellers’ for details.)

The opportunity is extremely flexible. If you have any questions, send an email to RedsFreshFish@gmail.com At this time, this opportunity is currently only available in Florida. If you are located in another state, or outside our ‘eligible area’ (stated below), and are interested in the opportunity, send us an email.

This opportunity is not an employment opportunity. You will be a Distributor of Red’s Fresh Fish. If you’re interested in employment, rather than the independent opportunities explained below, please email us your employment inquiry.

Both opportunities make available the ability for you to grow your own fish market under your own name alongside distributing Red’s Fresh Fish. If you wish to do so, you must follow all business requirements for your area, which may include the registration of a DBA, obtaining a Business Tax Receipt, and/or obtaining a vendors permit. All regulations must be adhered to. Or, alternatively, just operate for and through Red’s Fresh Fish. For example:

  • You take a contract with us, but you also start your own market. To do so, your personal business name must be filed and all other applicable laws must be followed, as well as the ‘Terms & Conditions’ stated below for the position you wish to take. Any illegal activities will terminate your contract with us.
  • Or, if you don’t want to worry about the legalities of starting your own market, you can work just through us. Staying solely with us will provide you extra options for advancement. Red’s Fresh Fish will take care of whatever we need to in order to expand into your area, if your area isn’t already covered. As long as all ‘Terms & Conditions’ are followed, things will be fine. Any terms found to be broken, including illegal activities and underhanded sales, will terminate your contract.

First is the ‘Independent Resellers’ opportunity. Below the ‘Independent Resellers’ opportunity is the ‘Independent Fisherman‘ opportunity.

There will be one Independent Fisherman per area. If your area already has an Independent Fisherman you can either become an Independent Reseller or work for the Independent Fisherman.

Independent Fisherman that fish solely for Red’s Fresh Fish will have the opportunity to become management. In areas where Independent Fisherman become management, Independent Resellers will have have the option of being directly employed through Red’s Fresh Fish under the Independent Fisherman. If management and/or employment offers are turned down, you will remain Independent Contractors until the contract is terminated by either party.
