What we've been up to..... (Part 1)

Our sampling of the products
we sell has made a huge impact
in our stores

The feedback from our customers
 has been overwhelming and
our store managers truly enjoy
 the face time with them...

2012 has been a very productive year for us here at Doris Italian Market & Bakery.  We completed a very ambitious renovation/expansion project at our Coral Springs location which took nearly 7 months to complete.  Our renewed effort to our customers has caught the attention of larger chains as these billion dollar companies consider us a competitor and have accepted our coupons at their locations.  We are experiencing growth at a time when the economy isn't.  We have reinvested in ourselves to also make a valuable point.  If you wish for change, it is up to us as individuals to do our part and by doing so, we have done, on a small scale, what many have expected the government to do.                                                             

Some of the demonstrations
have included interesting people
 like this Countess from Italy
whose family makes  great
Tuscan wine from their land
that has been theirs since
the 9th Century

We created more jobs.  The Coral Springs location created an extra 10 jobs due to its expansion.  We also put many tradesmen to work during our expansion/renovation.  General Contractors, engineers, architects, plumbers, electricians, painters, carpenters, machinists, and the list goes on and on.                                                                     

The spectrum of items being
sampled has been growing and
 customers can truly expand
their horizons by trying unique
 foods and beverages

Our reinvestment in ourselves also ended up being an investment in the future of where we are.  By doing what we have done, we have told our customers that our stores are here for the long term and with renovations in the works for our Pembroke Pines location, there is no denying that we are and will remain a part of the communities where we are located. 

All smiles

Stay tuned for more updates about what we have been doing and we have planned regularly.  Next update will talk about our catering which is growing by leaps and bounds.  Ci vediamo!

Customers are truly educating themselves
with these sampling opportunities

Mr. Olive Oil has become quite the
 regular in our stores and is at celebrity
status with his high quality products

Even the owners enjoy
the opportunity to mingle
 with the great customers who
 frequent our stores

We recognize the family
 element in our stores
 and have made an effort to even
 show our appreciation to the kids
