After taking a year off (well, mostly. I did one trip to the Twin Cities because our distributor up there begged me to come) we’re hitting the road again in 2010! We had such an intense schedule in 2008, it took me several months to fully recover from the near exhaustion of being on the road. I decided to take the summer off and just relax a little bit; spending time with family and friends. While I did enjoy my summer like a real person, our sales took a small hit due to the lack of demos, plus I felt a sense of responsibility to show support for our distributors by going into the stores for personal appearances. Plus, I missed seeing so many of our Roadfood friends that we’ve made over the few past years. So, here we go again, albeit on a greatly reduced schedule.
Whereas in the past we would travel the Midwest as many as eleven weekends throughout the summer, and spend just as many, if not more weekends running up to Milwaukee from Chicago, this year we’re just doing five trips out of town and five weekends in Milwaukee. Our schedule looks like this:
: Twin Cities
: Twin Cities
: Canton & Columbus, Ohio
As you can see, we structure our demo schedule around the cities where we have the best chance of meeting our Roadfood friends. Obviously, we’re hoping to spend time with all of our Contingent
friends in Milwaukee. I’m also counting on seeing Davydd in the Twins, buffetbuster in Pittsburgh (and also for a Friday night pig-out at Sokolowski’s in Cleveland), and, if the gods are good to us, we might even run into Michael Hoffman at the Gahanna Grill when we’re in Columbus.
So, that’s it. I’ll post specifics for each tour as we approach the dates. Our store schedule for this Sunday will be posted later this week.
We hope to see as many Roadfooders as possible over the summer. If you haven’t visited us before, now’s your chance to come out and say hello!
