June was a month of exciting announcements and opportunities to initiate our strategic goals and ambitions to grow the Reaper Robs brand. 🎉
We were excited to announce, Mr. William Wollrab, Co-Founder of the Yard House restaurant chain, (sold to Darden Restaurants for $585M in 2012) joins Reaper Robs as Advisor, and Member Board of Directors. We feel William's experience and deep knowledge in the restaurant and hospitality industry adds real value to Reaper Robs and as an advisor and mentor will help facilitate our strategic growth goals. Currently William is the Founder of AllPeople Marketplace, bringing communities of like-minded people, brands and nonprofits together to help make positive change for the world. William has a history of success, is committed to environmental, and sustainable values, and social good, values that resonate with Reaper Robs and our executive team.
In June, Reaper Robs was also selected to pitch from over 4,500 businesses and over 13,000 products in Walmart's 2022 Open Call event. This was an exciting opportunity for suppliers whose products are made, grown or assembled in the U.S. having the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Walmart merchants during the June 28-29 event. Update: Reaper Robs x Walmart: We had a very exciting introductory conversation with Walmart's Merchandising Director – Sauces & Condiments and will keep the Reaper Robs community updated on the evolution of discussions, contracts, and orders! We are very excited for our future partnership with Walmart! Very, very promising. 💯
Both NASDAQ and Bloomberg, featured Reaper Robs ambitious goals of "Developing Premium Small Batch Hot Sauce Into Bar and Grill Restaurants" with an article detailing gourmet hot sauce company Reaper Robs announcing that it will be opening a chain of bar and grill restaurants and launching food trucks, along with offering franchising opportunities. This announcement is in strategic alignment with the appointment of Mr. William Wollrab as an Advisor and Member of the Board of Directors to help facilitate our ambitious goals. Our executive team has deep firsthand experience in the franchise arena, developing a franchise model, creating a system, and successfully franchising a promotional marketing and advertising company throughout Australia and New Zealand. During this time this business was the recipient of the Australian Business Awards for "Marketing Excellence" - Marketing & Business Management Services.
To say June has been busy is an understatement.
Thanks for reading, your business, and ongoing support!
