Ree Dolnick is passionate about creating amazing cookies and energy bars with a twist. In this interview, she talks about plans for new recipes and distribution of Jeca's cookies and snack bars.
Q: What are the longer-term plans for the lines of products?
A: There are more recipes in the pipelines for the bars and the cookies. Watch this space..
Q: Where would you love to see your bars and cookies available? For example, perhaps, in schools?
We would love to be able to offer a line of snack foods in a form of a cookie and bars which are specifically designed for our school children. Children have very specific needs. For example, their palates are more sensitive to flavors. We hope to develop a really healthy and enjoyable snack to have at schools. I think we're in a perfect position to be able to create something specifically for kids, so that they can not only benefit nutritionally, but they're going to want to have it because it's so delicious. That's our goal for that line.. watch this space!
Q: In terms of any resellers and distributors out there, tell me a little bit about how they can potentially get involved with you and with Jeca.
A: I would love to have that discussion with anyone who thinks that this product is something they want to pursue. We are looking for partnerships with vendors that have same philosophy in food. Contact Jeca and let's chat about how our product fits with your needs.
Q: Will you be at any trade shows or events in the next 12 months? If so, which ones and why?
A: We would like to start going to trade shows to introduce our products. Hopefully, these are trade shows that will be attended by visitors who are of like minds and is going to be able to appreciate what we're trying to do here because I think this product is so unique that they need to taste and understand what it is.
The best way to do it is for us to present it to them. I think the trade shows would be a great way to do outreach. To start with, we'll focus in the local area of Buffalo / Western New York, and then further out.
