Rocco, Super GM, at our Cleveland and Grand shop, called. He asked if there might be a way to tell our customers that, "When we open the doors in the morning, the phone immediately starts ringing off the hook. Everybody calls at the same time wanting delivery! Is there any way you could inform people that we're here as early as 8:00 AM? People don't have to wait until we 'open.' In fact, the earlier they call, the more likely they'll get their order faster. 'The sooner, the better.'" I told Rocco that I'd try to get the word out.
I was also talking to Mike, GM at our Woodbury store. Then Mike reminded me, "I know it's not always possible, but if customers can come in and pick up their food, we can usually have it ready for them in a far, far shorter time."
What do you think would be the best way to get the word out?
Dan, the Minnesota Youth Atheletic Services guy, emailed me. He wanted to know when we would be releasing some new commercials. "Wow! I didn't know you loved our commercials so much," I responded. "Actually," he wrote back, "When you release new commercials, you usually have a trivia contest so I can earn a FREE Solo Pizza." And so, humbled again, I offer this challenge. Go and watch our two newest ads, currently running on KSTP (Channel 5) and KSTC (Channel 45) and answer the following questions:
Send in the correct answers to BOTH questions and INCLUDE YOUR POSTAL MAILING ADDRESS to email@example.com. If you answer both questions correctly by Saint Patrick's Day (March 17), I will send you a coupon for a FREE 1-Item Solo Pizza. Only one entry per person, per household.
Ken, our guy in charge in our retail products, was talking to me. He was saying, "People are delighted people with our DAVANNI'S Tavern-Style Pizza after sampling it. We're doing in store demostrations on the next four Saturdays. First of all, you need to tell people where to buy any of our retail products. Then, you need to tell them where we're doing the demos, so they can stop by and try 'em for free." (Sounds like I'm a needy person....)
So, Cherished Insiders, click this link which identifies the grocery stores where our retail products are sold. And be informed that we're doing Tavern-Style Pizza demonstrations each of the following dates:
They typically run from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
