I don’t know about you but I am not a fan of the kitchen, so anything that tastes great and still takes very little prep time is for me. This time we shot this video in less than a half an hour. Not as many bloopers as we normally have because this is a very simple breaded chicken recipe with only 3 ingredients. You have your chicken breasts, mayonnaise and Italian breadcrumbs. That’s it, very easy. Tristan did a great job showing how this dinner was made, and even young children can make this dinner and feel real good about themselves because it is so delicious. Just a little help from mom or dad to take the chicken in and out of the oven, but other than that a 5 year old could easily make this all by their self.

Challenge: A charitable organization that provides assistance for seriously ill or injured children who must travel far distances for specialized care includes many different branches, one of the most important being the nonprofit organizations that take many hours out of their busy days to help the charity in any way they can. The charity wanted to do something special for some select nonprofits that have contributed significantly to the betterment of the program, especially in their fundraising endeavors. After speaking with their promotional product distributor, they decided that they wanted to utilize popcorn gifts.
Solution: The promotional product distributor went through several product lines and discerned several items that they believed would work. The team presented these products to the executives of the Charity and both concluded that one product in particular struck a nerve. The gourmet custom popcorn single was chosen as the gifts to send to the nonprofits. A four-color process label is affixed to the front of the bag, while the pre-popped popcorn comes in either butter or cheese. The team elected to send an equal amount of both flavors to each nonprofit address. The label included the charity’s logo with text below thanking the organization for their continued hard work.
Result: The custom popcorn gift thank you was greatly appreciated by all recipients. After receiving the gift, several of the companies responded with kind thank you notes in regard to the item and some even remarked on the freshness and taste of the popcorn. The charity reported a spike in volunteer numbers after the promotion and noted that the number of employees in the nonprofit companies that received the gift went up dramatically. Now, not all of this can be attributed to the popcorn single, but the word of mouth definitely helped. The charity was incredibly happy with the promotion and the product selected. They praised the team for their hard work and dedication in finding the right product at the right price. They were so pleased with the product that they considering using the same promotion sometime soon, but sending the items to different nonprofit organizations.

Challenge: A local car dealership has been serving their region for over thirty years. The dealership has always taken pride in their superb customer service and employees that have been with the company for decades. It is a community institution and the company wanted to do something special at the end of the year for their most loyal of customers. Most clients have been with the dealership for as long as the some of the employees. It seems like once a customer bought a car from them, they have refused to buy a vehicle from anyone else due to the quality customer service and the dependability of the product. As a company, the dealership endured an extremely tough year with the prevalent vehicle recalls, so they wanted to do something special to ensure that their customers would remain committed to the dealership. They contacted a promotional product distributor.
Solution: The promotional product distributor felt that a gourmet food gift would be the best fit for dealership. In the end, dealership decided to use a tin filled with chocolate covered mini pretzels. The dealership decided that they would give the product to customers that have been with them for over ten years. The gift would be sent after Christmas for the New Year, symbolizing another year with the business. The outside of the tin had their logo and the inside of the tin was a customized greeting card.
Result: The customers that received the gift couldn’t believe the generosity of the dealership. The owners remarked that every time a client would come in for service or a tune-up, they would go on about the tins and the delicious pretzels.
