Ready to dive in and introduce my delicious products to one of the largest wholesale marts in the United States. Lets do it!
After almost 10 years in business, The Charleston Soap Chef is ready to hit the AmericasMart in Atlanta.
Let's do it!
Hi, I am Jeanine, The Charleston Soap Chef, The Soap Lady. I hope you enjoyed my video. It sums The Charleston Soap Chef up in a nutshell. Here I am, oh-so blessed to have this wonderful business and now ready to take it to the next level and I would love your support.
You may ask yourself why I have waited 10 years to do this... Life happens and family has always been my priority. Now that the boys are older I am ready to take on new challenges. Plus, I can put them to work. (Just kidding y'all!) Seriously, timing is everything. I am ready, and it's time to hit AmericasMart.
- What is AmericasMart? It is a premiere market in Atlanta, GA that will allow me the opportunity to get Charleston Soap Chef products on retail shelves throughout the United States. For 5 days in July, AmericasMart makes temporary exhibit space is available to vendors like me to participate in the Gift and Home Furnishings Mart. This event will give The Charleston Soap Chef exposure to thousands of potential retailers and buyers. www.americasmart.com
- Am I ready? Game on! I have some wonderful mentors who built their businesses from the ground up and their participation in the AmericasMart made their businesses into a success. These wonderful business people are willing to share their wisdom and guide me through the process to make it a success.
That's a lot of soap! It sure is, and I am geared up and ready to go. The past years of experience have given me some insight on how to produce delicious, high-quality products efficiently as well as develop a keen eye for some great help. (Thanks everyone!)
The money pledged will cover the following expenses.
- Booth Rental at AmericasMart
- Booth Display and Set Up
- Travel Expenses
- Product Branding - A great company called Studio Nudge www.studionudge.com will be polishing up my logo & website, while staying true to the The Charleston Soap Chef identity and goodwill.
I am very thankful for this opportunity, and hope you stay tuned. I would love to hear your feedback and ideas as well as your support. Next time you are in Charleston, be sure to stop by the Farmers Market and say hey. In the meantime, you can find me at www.thecharlestonsoapchef.com
