It’s hard to believe that just three weeks ago we were excited to receive our first shipment of bags. Not because that was an insignificant event, but because we’ve been so busy and accomplished so many things since then, it seems as though it has to have been more than three weeks!
The last 3 weeks have been SO. MUCH. FUN. We’ve gotten our first signed contract, received our first order of coffee, fine-tuned the website, finalized order forms, received logo wear, taken care of even more paperwork, and hosted a booth at our hometown’s annual Showcase. It was an awesome event for us – we were finally able to share our beans with our friends and neighbors! We had lots of traffic and help in the booth from our friends and family. One of the best ideas of the day came from Jaye – we had several students from the #bhstrojancoffee rally in the booth to help us with traffic and selling beans, and she sent them out to give samples throughout the exhibit space. It was truly rewarding to see those kids come back to the booth with orders for samples and beans, smiling and laughing, after interacting with attendees and bringing awareness to their rally. The icing on the cake for us was the Best Booth award, presented to us by the Showcase committee. It was a good day.
Wait a minute, speaking #bhstrojancoffee, did I forget to mention that over the last three weeks we also planned and prepared to launch our first rally tomorrow?? Details to follow soon!
