I am working on building both my wholesale and retail dessert business. I am considering calling some firestations in the area to determine if they would make viable retail clients. I know that most (if not all) of the firestations prepare their own meals. But, I'm wondering if they also do their own baking or if they normally bring in homebaked or storebought desserts. I thought I would ask my CC friends first. Does anyone have any information or insight into this? I anxiously await your responses!!
Thanks in advance.
I don't know about clients but they do love the freebies My husbands a firefighter and sometimes the wives bake stuff, they are known to watch their pennies But if they were a bunch of women on the other hand you would have yourself a fortune
Where I'm at they just want freebies, but it never hurts to tuck a business card in along the box lid. If something ever happens and an order gets canceled I know people who donate the product to the police and fire stations, they are always happy to receive them.
anyone and everyone are potential clients. sending them a freebie with all of your info is a good idea. send them a freebie and see what happens.............
not sure about them buying desserts but Some fire halls in my area have kids bday parties at the station on weekends. I did a firetruck cake for a party that was there, they all loved it. It could be an idea to drop of some brochres or order forms if your fire ststion hosts bday parties too.
