From the Desk of Dirt Hound (production honcho for Kate’s Real Food)
As fall drifts into winter, I would like to give a big thanks to those who made this a successful season at Kate’s.
First and foremost—a big thanks to you, our fans! We would not be here without you! You have continued to support us by eating, loving, and spreading the goodness of Kate’s to others. Our customers deserve huge credit for helping us see the light at the end of tunnel, as we continue to work towards Kate’s success. Thank you!
Our sales team, the dynamic duo of Myndi and Jan, has been busy getting new accounts, arranging demos, and traveling to exotic lands like Colorado to support our bars. Their hard work has kept us hopping in the production department.
Last winter, the sales team was getting it done with style so we needed to boost production to keep up. Along came “Aimee the Artist.” Three days a week, Aimee cranked out batches of the tasty bars you’ve been eating all summer. I’m glad Aimee found the time to work with us; she is a busy lady with two young boys, a husband, and ongoing art projects.
Becky, our former “Master Maker,” took bar-making to a high level of accuracy and consistency during her two-year tour of duty at Kate’s. Unfortunately for us, she left this spring to have her second beautiful baby. Congratulations Becky!
Becky passed the torch to “Kick Ass Liz” who has learned well what Becky had to teach. The tradition of making bars with love and near-perfect accuracy lives on!
Our latest addition to the cooking crew is “Rowdy Kali.” Kali has brought a level of energy and readiness that is blending well with Liz’s always positive and kick-ass attitude.
On the tail end of production is our cutting, packaging, and quality-assurance person. Bursting onto the scene in mid-May was the way over-qualified “Big Guy Blake.” Blake has since moved on—to a job with a desk— but we seamlessly transitioned in “Rock-and-Roll Jaycene” as his replacement. Blake left some big shoes to fill, size thirteen, I believe! At five-foot-three, Jaycene stepped right in to make sure you eat the best Kate’s bars possible.
Thanks Crew! Here’s to next season and the best winter yet.
