I Hope Jon Hamm Reads This...
I couldn't wait to call Jeanne this morning for the lowdown on her official Elks swearing-in and for all news about the goat. TOTALLY ANTI-CLIMATIC. The goat didn't make an appearance and there were no Marty Moose impersonations. By all accounts, it sounded like a very run-of-the-mill initiation ceremony...though she did receive a coupon for a free meal at the Elks Club on a Friday night or Sunday morning. Still, in my opinion, goat antics outrank free biscuits and gravy any day of the week. Once I got the play-by-play of the event, we prepped our baking schedule for Lucky's and started talking about new business. We've been working on developing corporate accounts...meaning people and businesses who have the need for recurring orders (at least monthly), for whom we can offer special pricing and monthly invoicing.
We have a lot of great ideas about who this could work for and we are super excited to introduce two new partnerships!
We have new friends at First Community State Bank (http://www.fscb.com/locations/columbia-bethel/). FCSB is a Missouri bank with branches all over the state (literally...there are like 48, with three in Columbia alone). They offer an event for their Horizon Club members on the first Tuesday of each month and starting March 11th, those lucky attendees will be enjoying a variety of Peggy Jean's Pies. We were able to offer FCSB discounted retail pricing and monthly invoicing and a standing date on the first Tuesday of every month. We are so excited to have you in the PJP inner circle, FCSB!
From new friends to old friends, we are THRILLED BEYOND COMPARE for our buddies at Shortwave Coffee. Dale and Laura have opened their very own coffee shop in Alley A in downtown Columbia and I really can't wait to get there (my coffee love is well documented). They are open from 7 am to 1 pm each Monday through Friday. And since they are just a few blocks away from Lucky's, I'll be stopping by on a regular basis with fresh PJP pie for sale by the slice at Shortwave! It looks like we will be starting next week with Dutch Apple and then will stop by later in the week with fresh Chocolate Bourbon Pecan for the people that will flood downtown next weekend for the True/False Film Festival (self included). Without question, one of the best weekends for the Columbia business community AND I hear that Jon Hamm often returns to Columbia for the event. (I have no confirmation of this piece of gossip but I so so so so so hope it is true...and Jon Hamm, if you read this, free pie for you).
I digress. Jon Hamm has that impact on me.
If you own a business or you regularly interact with customers whom you would like to send a pretty awesome gift (talking to you realtors and construction companies!), we can offer you discounted retail pricing and the option for monthly invoicing. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing information and thoughts on how we can get you set up!
