Why We Crave Comfort Foods and Sweets

Saturday, January 9, 2021

Why We Crave Comfort Foods and SweetsDespite the focus on healthy lifestyles, people still crave (and enjoy!) their comfort foods. For example, a national survey of 1,000 adults found that Americans eat an average 18,928 cookies in a lifetime. While you’ve seen the popularity of “açai” and “superfood” on menus, you’ve also heard of the cake pops craze and the emergence of “midnight cookie” delivery services. No matter what food trends of the day rise in popularity, we will always have go-to foods that we turn to for comfort in times of need. But what we consider “comfort foods” actually varies depending on the person, occasion, and mood.

Changing Trends in the Workplace

Sunday, January 3, 2021

The hottest perk at work? Free food and drink. Remember the days when employees were happy to have a Mr. Coffee machine in the office, and they could help themselves to a fresh (or not-so-fresh) cup of joe with powdered creamer? And if someone was nice enough to occasionally bring in a box of donuts or cookies, the lure of free food had employees from all over the company sniffing them out, happy and buzzing.

What I’ve Learned: Keeping Employees Engaged

Thursday, December 31, 2020

After more than 26 years owning and operating a successful bakery, I know I could not have achieved what I have without my employees. I sell delicious products made from fresh, wholesome ingredients, but without engaged employees, I would not have a thriving business.

What I’ve Learned: Tips for Growing a Strong Company Brand

Monday, November 30, 2020

A company brand is your business’ essence, inside and out. It’s the story of who you are, and speaks to your customers in every aspect of your business. While it’s reflected in your logo, website, offices, products, employees, and culture, none of those are your brand. Rather, they are the expressions of it, of what and who you are.

Mastering the Elusive Art of Delegation

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Delegation: it’s all about teambuilding and trust.   Micromanage: a word that’s become synonymous with annoying bosses, for good reason. Quality leadership is built on trust – managers who don’t know how to or won’t  release control enough to let the team do their jobs, can unintentionally harm the self-confidence of their staff.  Just as impactful is how holding that control affects the manager. If you’re not using the tools and resources at your disposal, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity to grow and to focus on new tasks that can propel your success. 

Consumers are Trying to Eat Healthier, but Still Want Their Treats!

Saturday, October 3, 2020

Despite all the hype about healthier eating, people still want their sweet treats. We think it’s safe to say the desire for good sweets will never disappear.  So while ‘guilt-free’ options are appreciated by consumers, focusing solely on healthy can mean missed sales and customer satisfaction opportunities for those who still want the comfort of a traditional favorite.
