Hope all sixteen days of the new year are going well so far? The year started out really solid for us. Let's just say that we were really, really looking forward to a new year and new beginnings towards the end of 2012. So far, this year has not disappointed. We started out with our friends at Saks Fifth Avenue placing an order for the entire year! Imagine that? Throughout this year, we'll be delivering cupcakes to them regularly on a monthly basis and we're just thrilled to have begun the year with such an arrangement. This is something we kicked around in our heads - the idea of delivering cupcakes on a regular basis to our customers. We didn't even have a name for this 'program' when we got the call to do just that. So, look for some kind of corporate gifting program from us this year. Still have no idea what to call it.
Also, just this past week, we posted on our facebook page that the president of one of the biggest, most recognized, brands in the world went to our lil' website and placed an order for his wife's birthday. That was just out of this world. Being that I spent an entire semester in business school doing case studies on his company and that they are all over the place, you can imagine why we're so over the moon that this happened.
- More opportunities to connect with our customers in a retail setting. Not sure what that means, but we'd love, love, love to have more Bakery Days!
- Classes. We'd love to offer cupcake decorating classes and demos.
- New flavors and new products using somewhat unusual ingredients as well as items from our local farmers market. We're really excited about this. Specifically, the thought of all the testing and sampling to come.
