Today was our first day in Maryland. It was the perfect day. The sun was shining all day and the temperature was just right. We started the day off at Harris Teeter in Bethesda. It was a great Saturday morning. We were able to bring gelato happiness to several families. I had one man give us pointers on sights to see in Boston while we are there. (We leave for Boston on Tuesday). One of the highlights for me today was meeting a family from South Carolina. I really enjoy running into fellow South Carolinians when I’m traveling. It’s almost like I have a little piece of home with me.
Lauren and I had thought we had our last Harris Teeter wrap when we were in Raleigh, but it turns out we were able to have one more today!
After leaving Harris Teeter, we went to Magruder’s on Frederick Rd in Rockville. The event this afternoon was probably one of our busiest events yet. We had a blast. A lot of people at the event today had never heard of Ciao Bella, and those who had, did not know Magruder’s sells it. We love to meet people who have heard of Ciao Bella because we love to hear about their favorite flavors and how they discovered us. Even more than that, we love introducing the product to new people. We get to see their reaction to the flavors and we get to become a part of their discovery.
Another highlight of our day was finally meeting Mickey Parsons and Eric Mendzela. These guys have been great. They have helped Lauren and me find stores and schedule events. It was great to finally be able to put a name with a face, and to thank them for everything they do. We’ve had a lot of great people help us out along the way so far and I know we will encounter many more.
We will be in Ellicott City tomorrow at two Safeway locations so make sure you and your friends come discover what flavor you want to fall in love with!
