Well, the sun finally came back out in Massachusetts today. It was warm and the skies were blue. We had our first experience at Big Y today, and we loved it! The managers at both stores (East Longmeadow and Longmeadow) were so nice. They were both really excited to have us and wanted us front and center to pass out our samples. We had a constant line today at both events. Several people commented that is was the perfect day to pass out samples of Ciao Bella Gelato and Sorbet. They were right because it was warm and sunny, but we think everday is the perfect day for Ciao Bella!
At our second event a lady walked up to the truck wearing a pink “Carolina Girl” shirt. I immediately told her I loved her shirt. When we told her we were from South Carolina she got really excited. She is originally from Spartanburg (which is close to my hometown), and most of her family still lives there. She also said that her family owns a house in Litchfield which is near where Lauren’s parents live. It was really nice meeting someone who knows about our stomping grounds and loves South Carolina as much as we do!
We’ll be at Big Y again tomorrow in Springfield and Westfield, MA. Make sure to come see us. It’s almost your last chance. We leave Massachusetts on Tuesday bound for Rhode Island. You definitely don’t want to miss out on our free samples!
