Lauren and I had a great time in Raleigh. We gave out over 600 samples today! Everyone at Whole Foods and Harris Teeter were great. Thanks to all the Raleigh residents who showed their support for Ciao Bella during our stay. We had several people who knew we were coming and chased us down. We also met some who just happened to be at our location…talk about being in the right place at the right time. We explained to everyone what we were doing this summer. Many of them have friends in our future locations and are telling them to find us!
We are currently on the road to Richmond right now. We are getting one last shipment from Southern Foods tomorrow so we’ll be ready for our Richmond and Maryland stops. Once again, I have to thank Billy and the rest of the Southern Foods employees. You have been great. We are definitely going to miss working with you, but are looking forward to working with Heidi and the others at Dole and Bailey.
We’ll see you in Richmond!
