Foodie Life is a Culture Brand who’s mission is “To Seek the Flavor of Life through Food, Culture and the Human Experience.”
Foodie Life people—lovers of flavor, food, adventure, culture, night life, travel and —are a true community of their own. Our first move was to tap into the strength of that community by telling Foodie Life stories and uniting them around a lifestyle. Next, we are building the ecommerce program, launching with a fresh Foodie Life website design and a strategic email marketing plan to fuel online shopping. Introducing visuals and messaging giving the brand an edge that matches the energy of Foodie Life.
Foodie Life Radio Hour is a platform for Fellow Foodies to share some of their passions and experiences in the Hospitality and Culinary arena. A collection of funny stories, cultures, flavor and human experiences!!!
A PRETZEL COMPANY ON THE RISE
Auntie Anne’s got its start in 1988 when Anne Beiler bought a stand in a Pennsylvania farmers market. After some experimentation, “Auntie” Anne created a masterpiece. We continue to bake by a certain philosophy that keeps people coming back for more delicious dough. It’s easy to see: We are so much more than just pretzels.
Rise Up, Freshen Up, Auntie Up your snacking standards. Join the movement!
DrinKitz was formed in 2012 to develop, produce, and market an innovative and unique line of powdered cocktail drink mixes. The company was formed by a group of US Navy guys far too cheap and lazy to fully stock and mix drinks from their own bars or the endurance to carry it all around. After discovering that mixing drinks from a bartenders guide got more difficult with the number of drinks consumed they asked the golden question —why can’t we just add a packet to our favorite alcohol, mix, and drink. Now you can!
Far different than anything on the market, these drinks are easy to use and mix, require no knowledge of bartending or mixology, and save you time and money. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool, hosting an event at home, heading out on vacation, or want to impress family and friends, you’ll want these by your side. With one shot of your vodka, rum, or tequila, a little water and ice, and your choice of over 30 drink mixes, with a quick shake you become an instant bartender. Want something different? No problem, just grab a different mix packet! Want something we don’t have, let us know.
Made in America with high-quality ingredients, and available through regional liquor distributors, various retail markets, caterers, and on our own Amazon storefront (coming soon), these great products put fantastic tasting, full-bar quality mixed drinks at your fingertips—without the bar tab.
