On November 10th, HELL FIRE DETROIT attended its first event, the 2015 Making It In Michigan Trade Show and Conference in Lansing, Michigan.

We met so many really nice, smart and helpful people at this event. Buyers, distributors, restaurateurs, manufacturers, MSU students, farmers, entrepreneurs, journalists, foodies, lawyers, etc. Yes, even the lawyers were nice! Our minimalist booth was all the buzz. Thanks for the good vibes everyone!!!

But one visitor was very special. A really nice MSU student (sorry, I can’t remember his name) came to tell me HFD was selected as one of three winners for the 2015 Westborn Market Product Placement Award. What da??? He walked me to the stage and I accepted the award then proceeded to choke on the Grammy speech I’d been preparing for the last 20 years. This award was a complete surprise to me. And an amazing one!!!

Westborn Market evaluated 164 companies at the show and selected the top three based on quality, distinct flavor, attractive packaging, well-defined competitive advantage, the ability to exhibit market readiness along with a sound business proposition for the consumer and grocer. Winners get guaranteed shelf space for a year at all three Westborn Market locations. So PLEASE let Westborn Market know they made the right choice and go pick up some HFD ASAP!

Westborn Market Locations:

Berkley - 27659 Woodward Ave., Berkley, MI     Map

Thank you Westborn Market for believing in HELL FIRE DETROIT!!! We hope this is the beginning of a long and hot relationship!

Hell Yeah!
