MOM & ME Launch & Demo Days
So I wanted to start blogging about my demos, products, different stuff that I travel for. I love reading feedback of other entrepreneurs, so I figured I’d start writing some about my exciting progress.
So far the Mom& Me Italian sauce is only in Hy-Vee Grocery stores which is a Midwest grocery store chain. I used to work there for my first real job, and I started being a sacker, then checker, and finally catering, and then eventually left after two years and now I’m back where I started but selling my product in their store, It’s a great feeling to still have their support in my life and really loving my families sauce and concept of our brand which will be great for when we expand.
So far we have done our first launch at the Madison Ave. Hy-Vee store location I worked at and followed with demos at 5 other stores in the area so far.
Next week were going to be in Kansas and other area Hy-Vee’s. I must say as always it’s a little challenging sometimes doing the demos with the 4 of us all together (my mom, Sophia, my grandma and myself) but usually my grandma is helping watch Sophia, and my mom samples the sauce her way and I demo the sauce my way… I truly think when doing a demo to keep your samples ready, and have a quick 30 sec. run down of the food information is all that we as grocery shoppers need to here, but try telling that to my mom.
Here are some photos hope you enjoy, & if you get a chance to try the Mom&Me Italian Hot pepper Sauce post a recipe you used with it or take a picture, remember this is a all purpose sauce and I’ve made pizzas, pasta, tacos etc. with this lightly spiced flavorful sauce!
