For Correctional Commissary Operators


Greeting Cards: A True Profit Opportunity

The trend for offering higher quality, name brand items on correctional commissary store sheets have proven to be effective and profitable. Give them what they want, and inmates will buy more – and at name brand pricing.  But many commissary operators concentrate on only the best-selling food and drink products and don’t get the very best from other products such as greeting cards, treating them as add-ons to balance the product line instead of a true profit center. If you want to increase your greeting card sales, choose UPE.


UPE knows Commissary
