Home! I’m home! This has been an amazing week. I spent a couple of days with the Jones Natural Chews sales team, relaxing and learning, getting to know the people who get the treats into stores. The sales reps are an awesome lot. Check it out.
We spent a day hearing from all three Jones siblings, Darren, who runs the production end:
Dean, in charge of the packaging and shipping end:
And Laura, the boss:
They walked us through all of the Jones Natural Chews products, fielding questions and suggestions.
And of course Fred and Bessie had to get in on the action.
I can’t tell you everything we talked about. It’s top secret, after all. But I can tell you one of Darren’s jokes.
The top toothbrush salesman at the company was asked by his boss how he managed to sell so many brushes. He replied “It’s easy” and he pulled out his card table, setting his display of brushes on top. He told his boss, I lay the brushes out like this, and then I put out some potato chips and dip to draw in the customers. He laid out his chips and dip. His boss said, “That’s a very innovative approach” and took one of the chips, dipped it, and stuck it in his mouth. “Yuck, this tastes terrible!” his boss yelled. The salesman replied “IT IS! Want to buy a toothbrush?”
Y’all have a great weekend. And don’t forget to do three things, IN THIS ORDER.
