Carolina Sauce Company is open again after last week's vacation, and all hands are busy fulfilling orders, re-stocking items that sold out while we were closed, replying to emails and returning phone calls, and otherwise catching up with work. While vacation was quite relaxing, it was also productive and creative: We tried some new sauces and seasonings which we're considering as potential new products for our online store, we did lots of brainstorming and strategic planning, and we completed some website "clean-up" and general maintenance to make the online shopping experience at Carolina Sauce easier and more efficient.
A sincere Thank You to all of you who continued to shop online while we were closed, and a special thank-you for your patience and understanding as we scramble to fill your orders as fast as we can. And a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to those folks who made donations to Operation Sauce Drop right before we closed, and to folks who purchased "shop to support Operation Sauce Drop" products -- because of your generous support of our troops, we are in the process of fulfilling ALL of the gift-box requests on our waiting list AND will soon re-open the Operation Sauce Drop program with a little bit of money in the bank! This means we'll be able to resume sending a FREE taste of home to US troops serving abroad. While we were closed, we received more thank-you notes and photos from deployed troops who recently received their free gift boxes of sauce through Operation Sauce Drop. These will soon be posted on the OSD Feedback & Photos page, and I'll announce that here on my blog for those of you who'd like to read the latest thank-you notes and see how much our brave servicemen and women appreciate your thoughtfulness while they're deployed or stationed far from home.
Without further ado, I'll sign off for now and get back to the warehouse to keep working on those gift boxes and orders from our customers. Thanks again for your support!
