Tis the Season

It feels like October in KY, unseasonably cool, but we are fast approaching August. With the teachers and students returning to school comes the challenge of funding those programs we love - band, chorus, sports team, cheerleaders, clubs, group trips and even schools themselves. Boosters all over the states are putting their heads together trying to come up with the best fundraiser ever. Planning, Timeline and Rewarding, previously mentioned in an earlier blog, are my keys to success whether you are selling coffee or flowers. Plan for success by making sure you have chosen a company that provides a quality product AND excellent customer service. Don't be tricked by companies that offer incentives that look like they came from the dollar store or special services that they are actually going to charge you for. At School Spirit Coffee, our customers come back year after year because they know we care about their success. I'm looking forward to a great year with School Spirit Coffee!

Blogging 101

Here's the scoop on blogging. When you post a comment, the program is going to ask you for a profile. If you have an account with one listed then by all means use that. However, you do not need to create an account - use the Name/URL, insert your name - no URL needed. That post will be sent to me for approval and then you are live. I want to hear from you. Thanks

Summer Planning

Wow, am I in the midst of planning for School Spirit Coffee 2009/2010! We have new order forms, new flyers, updated website and much much more. Mocha Jo (Hot Chocolate) is back by popular demand - yes, I heard you!!! Our coffee selection and quality has never been better. Top four - Breakfast Blend, French Vanilla, Hazelnut Supreme and Snicker-Doodle are still offered in the popular Variety Pak. Did you notice I spelled Snicker-Doodle differenly? There is a company that notified me that they have a trademark on the name Snickerdoodle. Can you believe that? It's like a trademark on French Vanilla - not going to happen. Anyway, I don't want any trouble so I have changed the spelling. Same product and great taste, one of my personal favorites. My customers are the best and I am privileged to help with their fundraising needs.
