Thank you Jill and Company from the East Valley Bridal Show for giving us the opportunity to come out and showcase not only Honey Bear's but also Catered by MARK's which is some of our speciality foods for those brides and others who may just want something other than BBQ or just need to fancy it up a bit. We had a great time and made alot of new friends, now you all know how much Honey Bear's LOVES their friends. I think at some point or another we fed the entire show - brides, grooms, guests and even the vendors... and you know we enjoyed every minute of it too.
For years now we have been doing more than just BBQ but most people don't know that, so in an effort to expose more of our "speciality" foods we did a split set-up at this event, showcasing half of the booth for Honey Bear's and the other half for Catered by MARK's.
There were many memorable moments at the show, but I think the most outstanding one(s) was whenever a bride and groom would come up to the booth - the brides would be loving on our Catered by MARK's samples (chicken salad on heart shaped crackers, grilled pork tenderloin, chicken bites wrapped in bacon & jalapeno, strawberry walnut salad) while the grooms wanted the BBQ (pulled pork & chicken, hot links, cowbro beans). There were even a couple of grooms who were in serious negotiations trying to get the brides to change their wedding menus, no kidding!
We got alot of exposure and allowing everyone to sample our food was the best part of it all because although a piece of paper or business card may be set aside, they will not soon forget the taste... and because we are dedicated to our name and to our product, if you choose to become part of the Honey Bear's family, we are also dedicated to you.
