Today’s Remarkable Retailer episode features an interview with long time friend and exceptional entrepreneur, Molly Wilson who owns molly & drew – The Beer Bread Company.
The Beer Bread Company’s fearless leader is a small-town girl with a big-city spirit. After ten years in retail, she brought that spirit, heart, and experience to her new role as owner of molly & drew. Molly’s young family is ‘on the team’ – daughter Samantha loves to add strawberry soda to American Original Beer Bread Mix while her son Wilson craves the BLT dip with crackers.
molly & drew had their beginning in small-town Iowa with 100 bags of homemade beer bread mix at a craft show. Today, they’re in thousands of retail stores around the country, BUT they’re still inspired by the small town values and work ethic that started them on this amazing journey.
“Born and BREAD (we couldn’t resist!) in the heartland, our products, just like our people, are INSPIRED! We are inspired daily by our families, our friends, our work, and our customers.” ~Molly
If you listened to Remarkable Retailer’s Podcast Episode 006, you heard about our decision several years ago to set our store apart by offering gourmet foods and totally committing to that department as a way to enhance the shopping experience for our customers at Adrian’s Boutique. molly & drew – The Beer Bread Company has been an important part of our gourmet department and a consistent top seller!
I think you will LOVE this interview! Be sure to stay till the end where we’ll have a special offer from Molly and some great tips for the upcoming Atlanta Market.
Tried & True Promotions:
One of the best promotions we have ever done involved molly & drew’s Beer Bread. We wrapped packages of their bread mix in festive cello bags, tied it with ribbon and added a printed card that said “YOU are our Bread & Butter, and we APPRECIATE your business!” We gave these to our clients with a $50+ purchase on a Friday & Saturday in December and it really did WOW our customers!
Above & Beyond!
Molly has helped us grow our gourmet business, by providing easy to use, creative recipes using her products, being available to brainstorm with and answer questions and she is absolutely committed to shipping promptly and accurately. Since Molly is a former retailer herself, she understands the importance of taking care of her customers and has gone above and beyond many times for us!
