To Our Loyal Customers,
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your continued support. My dream of sharing my grandmother’s old-world recipes would not have been possible without you. As we continue to grow as a brand, I wanted to start sharing updates on changes and improvements we make every month. You can expect these updates from me on the last day of each month. Let’s jump in and begin with August.
So far, 2020 has been immensely challenging for many of us. We began to fight the ever-evolving Coronavirus Pandemic, causing problems many of us didn’t know would ever be a problem. Furthermore, many Iowans are still recovering and cleaning up from a derecho, a storm system bringing hurricane-force winds that swept the state of Iowa just under three weeks ago. Although 2020 has been challenging for us, together we’ll get through it, we always do.
The derecho brought challenges to us here at Nonna’s Pasta Sauce as well. As you know, our Sauces are sold frozen, therefore requiring many freezers to store our inventory. Due to the storm, much of the state was left without power for an extended period of time, including our headquarters, where our inventory is kept. Thankfully, we were able to transfer power to our generators to keep our freezers running, and therefore our inventory safe until power was restored. I also want to send a big thank you to the men and women who worked around the clock to restore power to Iowan’s as quickly as possible.
Also in August, and you may have already heard, we started a partnership with Tony Conrad on 92.5FM KJJY. We are incredibly excited about this partnership and are happy to reach you in yet another way. Make sure to listen for commercial, and be sure to like us, 92.5 KJJY and Tony Conrad’s Kitchen on Facebook!
Looking forward and hoping that no other obstacles are in our way, we are working on exciting new things, more specifically, expanding our product line! We are excited to bring a variety of dry Pasta’s available on www.NonnasPastaSauce.com. While we don’t have a timeline on when these products will be available, I can tell you that you will be able to include Pasta in your custom bundles and purchase them individually. We are excited to bring this new addition to our brand and to continue growing our brand with your support.
Last week we announced a huge sales event in September, Nonna’s End of Summer Bash! This sales event will occur from September 15th to September 22nd (the last day of Summer). Without spoiling too much, each day will bring new sales, and I am pleased to say this will be our biggest sales event of the year. You should start to see flyers and infographics about this sales event in your orders beginning September 1st!
To wrap up, I want to say how thankful I am for all of you, your support, and how much we have grown our brand just in the last six months of consistently being open, and I look forward to the progress we will continue to make. Feel free to reach out to me at any time, for any reason - it would be an honor to meet you, even if it is virtually.
Best, and until next month,
President of Nonna’s Pasta Sauce
