November 2022 Marketing Update

KEEPING ALL STAKEHOLDERS INFORMED OF THE LATEST PRODUCTS AND PRODUCT LINES REPRESENTED BY CORPORATE CHEFS LLC.

Before we begin this month’s update I would like to inform everyone effective today, we do not represent InHarvest.  We enjoyed a great relationship with them over the years and increased their sale substantially.  They were purchased by an investment group recently and when manufacturers are bought by investment groups the focus seems to change from customer focus to sales and bottom line focus. We wish them luck as they move forward with their new business model!  Secondly, we’d like to let you know that our plant based partner Plantera/Ozo Brand has decide to close their doors so, we no longer represent them either.  Our portfolio realignment will allow us to focus more on our current principles!

September 2022 Marketing Update

KEEPING ALL STAKEHOLDERS INFORMED OF THE LATEST PRODUCTS AND PRODUCT LINES REPRESENTED BY CORPORATE CHEFS LLC.

As we move through the summer and begin our transition into Autumn.  Here are some neat tidbits of information about the month of September.  September is seen by many to be a very pleasant time of the year.  For those in the northern hemisphere, the weather is finally starting to let up, with cooler nights chasing away the heat of the day.  September is the time to finish the year’s harvest and celebrate its bounty.  September is also a time of remembrance for us!  September 11, 2001, changed the shape of the world forever. It was on this fateful day that the worst terrorist attack on US soil happened when four commercial airliners were hijacked. Two of the planes were flown straight into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, and another was crashed into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crash-landed into a field in Pennsylvania after the passengers of the flight attempted to regain control of the plane from the terrorists.  This day changed all of our lives forever.  Everyone remembers where they were on this fateful day.  This is our generations December 7th(Pearl Harbor Day).  I was participating in a Quartermaster S+CSM/SGM Conference held at the NCO Academy on Fort Lee, VA.  I remember seeing the attacks unfold on TV during a break and thinking this is just like the Orson Wells Movie “War of the Worlds”.  I couldn’t believe what I saw unfolding in front of me, I thought it was a hoax.  It was not.  We pray everyday for all the service members who have defended this great country, been hurt in her service or paid the ultimate price in her defense.

August 2022 Marketing Update

KEEPING ALL STAKEHOLDERS INFORMED OF THE LATEST PRODUCTS AND PRODUCT LINES REPRESENTED BY CORPORATE CHEFS LLC.

August is known for many things, including the dog days of summer, National Watermelon Day (Aug. 3) and National Smile Week (Aug. 5-11). But there are many other fun facts associated with summer’s last full month.  August is named after Augustus Caesar, founder and the first emperor of the Roman Empire, who was posthumously adopted by his maternal great-uncle Gaius Julius Caesar.  In the early Roman calendar, August was actually the sixth month of the year. It was originally 30 days in length, but an extra day was added so that it would equal the number of days in July, which was named after Julius Caesar.  August has two birthstones: peridot and sardonyx. Peridot is among the oldest known gemstones and is green in color. Sardonyx, which is lesser-known, is a white- and brown-banded gemstone once believed to have mystical powers.  The official flower for August is the gladiolus. These vertical-growing flowers were named from the Latin "gladius," meaning a sword.  Fans of Elvis Presley mourn each Aug. 16th, the day the famed singer died in 1977.  On Aug. 24th in 79 A.D., the volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted, destroying the city of Pompeii and others.  People born in August fall under the sun zodiac signs of Leo and Virgo. Leos are known to be dramatic, creative and outgoing. Virgos have acute attention to detail and are the people most likely to dedicate themselves to serving. They also are loyal, hardworking and analytical.  On Aug. 21, 1911, the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre Gallery and not recovered for two years.  Although civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., is honored in January, when he was born, he is best known for his famed "I have a dream" speech, which was given on Aug. 28, 1963.  The month of August is often referred to as the "dog days of summer" but not because of pet pooches. It has to do with the star Sirius, also known as the dog star, which rose at the same time as sunrise during the month of August in ancient Roman times.  Some famous people born in August include Martha Stewart, Martin Sheen, Jeff Gordon, Deion Sanders and Halle Berry.

July 2022 Marketing Update

KEEPING ALL STAKEHOLDERS INFORMED OF THE LATEST PRODUCTS AND PRODUCT LINES REPRESENTED BY CORPORATE CHEFS LLC.

As we move into the Independence Day weekend we bring you our July 2022 Corporate Chefs update!

Why is July a popular month for vacations?  July is one of the busiest travel months due to the weather being warmer in most places, and summer vacations for many schools are happening. A lot of families take their vacations during the month of July.

Why do we celebrate the fourth of July?  July fourth is a historic moment in the United States, as it is the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1776. It is considered the birthday of the USA and is also known as Independence Day.

Why is July considered the middle of the year?  There are 365 days a year, and July 1st is the 182nd day of the year, placing the month of July right in the middle of the annual calendar

A Strange and Patriotic Coincidence:  Three of America's founding fathers perished on a Fourth of July. John Adams (the nation's second president) and Thomas Jefferson (the nation's third president) died five hours apart on the same Fourth of July in 1826. James Monroe (the nation's fifth president) expired on the Fourth of July in 1831, exactly five years later.
