There are so many lists;
Oprah's list of Favorite Things
The Best of the Best
Tripadvisors 15 things to do
Top 25 places to eat
This list.......So which list are we so thrilled about? Let me share the story:
August 1st of 2019 The Scone Goddess opened for business. We offered fresh baked scones at the local farmers market. We soon had to pivot to online sales of our premium scone mixes in order to survive the pandemic. We made so many virtual new friends and introduced our deliciously simple method of making scones across the US.
This May, we opened our Fresh Baked Scones Trailer in hopes of capturing the hearts of new scone lovers with our 40 flavors of fresh baked original and gluten free scones. The trailer is small and literally gets moved by the wind caused by speeding tractor trailer trucks. Speaking with our guests is sometimes impossible and has been known to dissolve into a game of charades as we compete with the traffic noise and try to understand each order over the noise.
Yet, you keep coming back.
And, you tell your friends about The Scone Goddess.
A couple from Maryland showed up for our fresh baked scones today. As my daughter and I fulfilled their order, we asked what they had seen on their trip. Did they get to Acadia National Park? Did they tip the rocks to see the starfish? Where have they eaten? Did they try The Hoot? She explained that she had not gotten to The Hoot yet, but, it was on her list. She then went on to say that she had mapped out their trip and all of the places they wanted to eat before they arrived. The Scone Goddess had just been checked off the list! I exclaimed, "Oh my gosh! We were on your list? I love you!"
This means so so much to me as a small business owner and as someone who works 18 hour days creating new flavors, baking fresh scones, ordering, planning, writing this blog.....
You get the idea.
I am so Touched, Honored and Thrilled that you included The Scone Goddess on your list. Thank you.
If you or someone you know is making a list, you should know that August 1st is our Birthday. Also known around here as Free Scone Day. Better add that to your list. ;)
