About this project
I've learned a lot about marketing and reaching out and finding "YOU"- From the Court to the Kitchen's loyal fans and supporters since its inception. The manufacturer is ready to get the product produced and moving. I've gotten fantastic reviews from my customers, chefs, restaurants and ardent supporters, both in America and Europe. I am ready to share with you ALL of the spices that I have created, plus there are many more that are being developed! I want to truly knock your socks off!

Risks and challenges
This project was created as a viable way to produce and manufacture my full line of spices, sell and showcase the spices at conventions and to finally get all of the spices in mainstream stores in the United States and in European countries as well. The risk associated with this project are minimal.
From the Court to the Kitchen's line of spices have been thoroughly tested, logo and brand are easily recognizable with both color and design, the labels are being developed and as well as the nutritional and ingredient panel. The manufacturer, Signature Seasonings, can fulfill any size order from 25 cases and up, with no limit. Delivery of large orders has not been a problem as well. Creating the full line of spices is the key for success while conventions and demonstrations would be the next important equation.
