WOW! It’s been a whole month since we officially started selling Mazama Bars online, and it’s gone by super quick. I guess time flies when you’re having fun - or when things get so crazy that you really can’t tell which days are which anymore. Either way, we’re loving every minute of this adventure!
I’ll spare you all the details and just give you the highlights from the past month:
Derek and I have done plenty of events in the past, but these ones were special. First of all, we did awesome (powered by Mazama Bars, of course). Second, we finally got to show off our fancy new shirts! I ran the Eugene Half Marathon (PR! Woo hoo!) while Derek and family handed out a few Mazama Bars to finishers.
At the end of May, Team Mazama took to Bend for the Pole Pedal Paddle. For those of you who don’t know, the PPP is a multi-sport event that starts at the top of Mt. Bachelor and finishes at a big open-air amphitheater in downtown Bend. With perfect weather and an awesome team, we took first in our division and earned the coveted PPP mugs.
It’s been a long road getting to this point, but we’re pumped that Mazama Bars are officially for sale now. With the help of our family and friends’ word of mouth, we had a successful launch. It was a great feeling getting our first official orders out the door.
Slowly but surely, the word about Mazama Bar is spreading. Just weeks after our launch, Forbes.com blogger Carmine Gallo featured Mazama Bar as one of “tomorrow’s greatest innovators.” Our bars were also featured and reviewed on Tales of a Mountain Mama, which is a great blog for all the outdoorsy moms out there.
The first month has been a whirlwind, but we’re excited to see what the next few months will bring. We’re working on getting into some local retail locations, so where do you want to see Mazama Bar? Let us or them know!
