Have you ever heard of Mike Rayburn? He is the hilarious guitarist Great Harvest brought in for our morning and evening entertainment (you know, to get the audience all enthusiastic!). He’s kind of like Weird Al meets Brad Paisley. Totally talented and hilarious lyrics!
I laughed the whole time : ) LOVE the Beatles at 6:38 in this video!
Also think it’s funny whenever them mention blogs at these events – it’s like I have a secret inside!
I went to a session by the Anchorage, Alaska store (the most successful in sales store in the system) that was very helpful to remind me of parts of our store we need to work on. And then another on simple things to do to increase sales – I have a long to-do list to work on!
Then LUNCH! Breakfast held me over much better today, but by 12:30 I was starving again. I couldn’t wait to dig into this sandwich buffet with GREAT HARVEST BREAD!
Plus a salad bar and toppings galore
I made a mustard, swiss cheese and pickle sandwich on Asiago Sourdough and my gosh this was so amazing! It was a half sandwich, so I went back for a second smaller one! Maybe I’m just now entering my pregnancy pickle craving!?
I also made a roll with some Naturally Nutty Almond Butter! Shared this with Matt.
And a big salad – with beans!!
We ate lunch with the The Cunninghams of the McMinnville, Oregon Great Harvest. I told them all about Cville Cluster granola and we want to know if any of you are local to McMinnville and would be interested in getting it locally from them (probably sold under another clustery name). Anyone live nearby?
Shared a pecan bar + lemon bar with Matt. I think I’m over dessert with lunch – it just makes me too full!
After lunch we browsed the vendor hall, which was so much more useful this year now that we actually have a bakery to stock.
And ended with a sip of this, which I loved. We’re hoping to add these to our drink cooler
Now about that beach walk…………!!
