Hey Everyone! It has been so long since I’ve been on the blog! But that is kind of a good thing because I’ve been busy working on new stuff for Maria Pierogi. The past two months I focused pierogi sales. We had a successful Super Bowl sale and even worked at an event at the local brewery. I’m really excited about all the new things we are trying and want to keep the momentum going. I hope you enjoy and feel free to reach out with suggestions and comments. I love to hear from you.
We finally have a Maria Pierogi logo! I’ve played around with a bunch of ideas over the past year. I love polish folk art flowers so I did A LOT of scrolling through Pinterest trying to find examples. When I finally came up with an image I liked I recreated it in a design program I use at work. I’m really happy with the final product and can’t wait to order stickers for packaging. Ordering tee shirts is a future goal of mine!
Super Bowl Sale
When I saw the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots were going to be in the Super Bowl I HAD to have a pierogi sale. I’ve always wanted to create a lobster roll pierogi and a philly cheesesteak pierogi so it worked out perfectly. Last year for the Super Bowl I created fillings for the game and it was so much fun. I love creating comfort food fillings to add to the pierogi. The sale went really well. We got a lot of new customers and great feedback.
In the middle of our Super Bowl sale, the Peekskill Brewery reached out to us to join an event they were having for their mug club members. We gave out samples of our pierogi for the private event and sold out of the rest! This was the first time we got to make pierogi for a large group of people. Normally we sell the pierogi frozen and give instructions on how to make them at home. I liked the in person interaction when serving them to customers. We had such a great time talking to their guests and I’m so grateful for the opportunity. Hoping there will be more events like this to come!
Since the Super Bowl Sale went so well, I decided to post a menus every month. I will try to make it seasonal and keep some classic flavors. I’m noticing that everyone orders potato but requests to add something to it. This month I added potato cheese and potato onion to the list since that is the most popular. Another favorite is the Buffalo Chicken Pierogi. If you’ve ever been to a DP Dough, this pierogi is similar to a buffer zone.
That’s all I have for now. Have a great month! Our mascot, COCO says good bye too 🙂
