OK – working on a few new format items for the weekly updates. Feel free to comment on how you like them! :-)
New Locations at Millersville!
This week Habanero Joe’s Exceptional Salsa has TWO NEW locations! John Herr’s Village Market, and House of Pizza, both in Millersville, PA. Please support them as often as possible, as they both welcomed us into their families with open arms.
We received approval on John Herr’s on Wednesday and will try to be SAMPLING our salsa at John Herr’s in time for your Thanksgiving Day shopping. You have to walk right past our salsa every time you shop there! We’re at the end of the first produce case on the right, along side the other fresh salsas! If you happen to see Don, the produce manager – let him know how much you appreciate him. He was instrumental in getting our salsa approved by the owners. :-)
I stopped in at House of Pizza on Wednesday, and they have not added us to a specific menu item. That said, the staff has offered us some WONDERFUL feedback, and told us they will be launching our salsa TONIGHT, Nov 19th, at their Arbor Day Fundraiser. When you support the cause, you are offered some fantastic specials, one of which is a taco special, and I’m told our salsa will be accompanying it! Comment below if you attend and let us know how the evening went!
Where’d You Go?!?
Ferguson and Hassler’s has moved us to the produce department at our request. We wanted to be NEXT to the other FRESH salsas on the market. We wanted to see how we stand up to “the big boys.” I’m not sure if our sales in FH dipped these last two weeks because we’ve moved, or that people just keep going to the deli case directly, where sales have remained strong. Either way – keep telling your friends we’re out here!
Earlier this week, we told you – INCORRECTLY – that we had been moved to a different cooler in the Darrenkamp’s in Mt. Joy. Actually, they have our salsa in the SAME cooler it was in before, however, we are simply to the left of our last spot. We used to be on the left side of the rounded endcap of the refrigeration case between the deli counter and the first produce isle. We are now just to the left of that, on the end of the straight cooler, against the end cap we were previously in. No worries on finding us if you’ve bought our salsa from there before.
TJ Rockwell’s had a big order this week! I’m assuming that with their AWESOME Monday Night Football buffet – we’re starting to get a little more traction. Let’s keep them going! Habanero Joe’s was BORN because of Football! It’s only natural that it is enjoyed at every game! Be sure to click on their link and check out their page on the buffet!
Everyone else has us in the same locations. :-)
This Week’s Production
WOW. I was a Chopping Machine this week! 192 lbs in three days! The Haban-heiress and I couldn’t be more proud of our little endeavor, and are continually THRILLED that people enjoy the Spicy, Veggie Goodness as much as they do! 32 lbs Monday, 128 lbs on Tuesday, 32 lbs Wednesday, and an order for another 64 lbs today.
Make SURE you get your salsa for this weekend’s games! Nothing goes better with your football beer, than tortilla chips and Habanero Joe’s! What you don’t eat on Sunday, you can put on your cheesy eggs on Monday morning. Yeah, it’s THAT GOOD.
Two New Pages
In an effort to answer one of the questions we get everyday, we’re going to design a page (hopefully later today) that is a list of links to every place where you may purchase Habanero Joe’s – Exceptional Salsa, either by the pound or on the menu. We’re really growing now, and figure having this information more readily available would benefit all. Feel free to share this information with everyone you know. ;-)
We’ll also probably add a page of affiliates. These are the businesses that we work with regularly. They support us, and we in turn really want to do our part in supporting them. Local businesses helping other local businesses and supporting the community – that’s what it’s all about, right?!
Be SURE to reach out to us anytime you have a suggestion to share! If you don’t want to COMMENT on any particular post, feel free to CONTACT US directly, and we’ll get right back to you, usually within 24 hours.
