Let us help you!
Mountain Empire Promotions would like to thank all of our loyal customers for your continued support and partnership throughout the Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 semesters. We sincerely appreciate all of your past efforts and believe you will be very impressed and excited to be a part of our new line-up for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.
As the economic climate dictates, we have witnessed a substantial progression from hard goods sales to frozen sales over the past few seasons. Given the State of the Union, we feel that trend will continue this Fall. However, we believe a more positive outlook is on the horizon, and we are fully positioned to continue our growth pattern into the next decade.
We THANK YOU again, in advance, for allowing us the opportunity to work with your school!
Fundraising in Today’s Market
Fundraising used to be a piece of cake: Sell a catalogue with a couple hundred items, offer a little prize brochure and everybody’s happy. Now we have to take that line a bit more literally. We may not be selling “cake,” but we are finding that food does sell better in a tough economy. People simply see better values in edibles than in hard goods. And, in bad times, people still eat!
This transition has been in the works for a few years now. Frozen foods are gradually overtaking the hard goods sales, and the numbers that are being generated are nothing short of phenomenal! Record sales are occurring on a regular basis (See Statz) with cookie dough & frozen foods.
In fact, we believe the product scale has now tipped to the edible side, at least for the immediate future. And, it is our responsibility as “Fundraising Consultants,” to recommend the best possible program for your school. Therefore, in this age of “Recession Fundraising,” we are recommending “Smoky Mountain Gourmet Cookie Dough” as our primary product line for Fall 2013.
