This online gourmet peanut company was founded in 2005 by a husband and wife team dedicated to delivering the highest quality---best tasting peanut products! There love of peanuts and cooking meant creating a product like prepared in the kitchens of Colonial Days. Over the last 13 years they have developed 5 product lines sold mostly online for seasonal gifts. There is a burgeoning corporate sales effort. This company is poised for growth with broad customer base and great products.
The company’s extensive database of customers (mostly retail online) have not been marketed to with an email campaign. A significant opportunity exists to increase repeat business. An effective social media would help to increase online business. A sales effort to new wholesale accounts should be undertaken.
