Promotional Events

We hosted a Chamber of Commerce networking meeting in the evening on March 13.  It was well attended and everyone enjoyed plenty of gluten free food.  Most had never eaten gluten free food before and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was because it tasted like the same food that they were used to.

For our Retail Partners

We hold taste events at our retail partner locations to introduce our product brand to their customers and allow them to actually taste the products.  Below are a couple of unsolicited written comments about our products...

 ...Thanks again so very much for bringing the treats to our meeting!  The kids thoroughly enjoyed them - Big hits: Snickerdoodles, Sugar Cookies (not something they get a lot of), & Cupcakes.  

 

My kudos to you on Cupcakes and Pizza Crust. My husband makes our pizzas and said, "It was the best frozen pizza he has had"

...The cupcakes were amazing! We made brownies from the brownie mix today and they are wonderful!! Even the non-celiac (not gluten free) family members loved them! I would love to buy more and try more of your products and was wondering where they were available. Thanks so much!


...compliments like these are typical from everyone who has tasted our products.

June 2, Sunday at noon, we were a sponsor at the 3rd Annual Washington, DC Gluten Free Expo at the Doubletree Bethesda Hotel at 8120 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, MD just outside of DC.  The crowd was almost overwhelming for the venue but everyone was patient and pleasant.  We were the new company and the reception from consumers was great.  They came from as far north as Delaware.

May 18, Saturday at 1:00 pm, we were at the Healthy Home Market in Charlotte, NC for their customer appreciation day.  We introduced customers to our cookies, brownies and bread.  We even had a number of men stop and ask what gluten was and why people were going gluten free.  That was a first for us since we started doing these events.  It is great to see people actually inquiring instead of just ignoring the shift to a healthier gluten free diet.  The store is located at 2707 South Boulevard.
