Well, my 1st day doing my Whole Foods Demo is complete! Everything went really well! Here are some photos:
Everyone REALLY loved the food!!! ESPECIALLY the MEN!!!!! OMGOODNESS!!!! EVERY GUY that tried the food absolutely LOVED it!!! I had a couple of "skeptics"... But, after trying it, they took my business card and said that they would totally eat this way!!!
My Best Friend was there to help me, which I REALLY appreciated! I got some good prospects for Living on Live Food Classes!!! I'm exhausted, though!!! Gonna go take a nap now! Tomorrow, I'm gonna be back there at 11am, so if you can, come on out!!!!
You go girl. You looked fantastic!!:)
GREAT!!! Thanks for posting pics, I can feel your energy in the second and third ones especially!!! I'm happy that all went well and that the people were so receptive!
That's pretty awesome about the men, now to convert the wives/girlfriends and it's easy peasy in that household since the men seem to enjoy it already! Hmm...perhaps, I should ask if these were single men....cause i could use a raw food loving man in my life. Just saying...:p:p:p
Just found your post this morning, looked at my clock and it saw it was too
late to jump in the car and head out to Katy!
I'm so sorry I missed it (I forget to scroll down on Alissa's site to the "Events" section) and will make a point to read the Events section every day.
If you do another demo, I will be there!
WOW Renee! It looks like you're having a great time - lots of giggles going on?? Such a professional set up too, I'm impressed.
And what could be better than having everyone enjoy your food so much.
Now, you mentioned folks took your business card. I hope you don't mind if I ask what you offer? You mentioned food classes?
Thanks for sharing your pictures ~ best wishes for today's demo as well. *Ü*
My Sunday DEMO went EXTREMELY WELL!!! I was surprised at how many people turned out for it!!!! The reception that I received was EVEN BETTER on Sunday!!!! As soon as I was finished, the Manager at Whole Foods said, "Oh, PLEASE tell me that you'll do another one!!!!" There were about 7 that came on Sunday that was there on Saturday! I got a couple of CATERING offers, as well as VENDING offers from Whole Foods!!!!!!!!!!! It's SOOOO EXCITING!!!!
For Sunday I prepared Alissa's Rye Bagels (which were a HUGE, HUGE hit!!!), Alissa's Banana Berries and Cream (which everyone LOVED), and Green Smoothies!!!!
Wow!!!! Way to go, this is GREAT! Business is about to start BOOMING and when you love what you do (as much as you OBVIOUSLY do) it doesn't feel like work at all!
I'm so glad you posted your weekend update. Reading about it is a wonderful way to start my day and week. Congratulations chica! Now go out there and turn Texas RAW!!!! ;):D:D:D
So glad to hear it was a such a success! It only takes a spark, and I hope the news of your future classes spreads like a parched prairie's wildfire. Without any of the negative connotation of a fire of course. ;)
The "vending" offers by Whole Foods..... that is so cool! I bet you never thought it would take off so quickly.
This is wonderful Renee! I loved seeing your pictures. I am really wanting some raw bagels but I don't have a dehydrator yet. Do you ship!:D
I'm so glad it went well and business is booming! How cool.
MY NEXT WHOLE FOODS DEMO WILL BE THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2010 FROM 2PM-3PM AND SUNDAY MARCH 21, 2010 FROM 11AM-12PM!!!
I am so excited!!! This will be my third month doing the demo at Whole Foods and I am having a BALL doing them!!!
I'm still getting my menu together, but I CAN tell you...everything will be DELICIOUS!!!! :)
Please come, if you can!!! I ***LOVE*** meeting ones from my "ALISSA FAMILY"!!!! :D
Renee I was wondering if this has been effective for getting clients and/or as a way of generating income?
I am off on my new raw biz venture soon and am looking at all the ways to make it fly! Thnkx n lv
Good to see ya again!!!! Yea, this has been WONDERFUL for me! I get to advertise my Alissa Cohen Classes to Clients I wouldn't have been able to speak with otherwise! It's been a door to other opportunities as well! My Raw Biz now includes making RAW Boxes! Check out my blog!
I also do a Demo at the Local Library! My last one, I had between 15-20 people! The word is spreading like crazy!!! It's so great!!! People are so ready for RAW!!!! :)
