Holiday Wrap-up January 01 2015
It’s true what they say -- time flies when you’re having fun, and we had tons of fun during the 2014 holiday season!
Even though the “official” holiday season started with Thanksgiving, The Bacon Jams’ holiday season started on November 1, when we opened our kiosks at the King of Prussia and Christiana Malls. Four weeks later, on Black Friday, we opened our booths in downtown Philadelphia at Christmas Village in Love Park and Philly Phair in Franklin Square. Every day, rain or shine, we were out there spreading the bacon jam gospel. All told, the four locations banded together to achieve a synergy of sales that had us jammin’ straight through Christmas and ecstatic about our direction for 2015. We even were sent pictures of our jars on social media from happy customers who had received them as gifts on Christmas morning -- including one from the United Kingdom! That was pretty cool.
While it’s a bummer that the holidays and accompanying festivities are over, we don’t intend on slowing down. Our King of Prussia and Christiana Mall locations are open throughout the month of January, and we’ll be slingin’ bacon jam with the same gusto that we did in November and December. If you’re a fan of ours on the West Coast, we’re headed to the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, which runs January 11-13. Right after, we’ll be back in our hometown at the Philadelphia Home Show in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, January 17-19 and 23-25.
As always, thanks for being part of the ride and helping us get to this point. Strap in, bigger and better things await this upcoming year.~DK
