“Winning the Grand Prize of the 2006 Scovie Awards has put my company (Ashburn Sauce Company) and myself into another league in the sauce world and has opened a lot more doors.” –Willard Ashburn, Ashburn Sauce Company.
It happens all the time. Manufacturers suddenly begin to get inquiries and orders from buyers they’ve never heard of before. When they ask how the buyer found out about their products, often the reply is: “We saw that you were a Scovie Awards winner. There are so many products available these days that buyers look for unique reasons to favor one brand over another and being a Scovie winner provides a unique distinction that sets your product apart from the others. Even if you’ve won in past Scovie competitions, there are always benefits to winning again. It is great being a past winner, but being a current winner is better.
“It was almost like that first kiss; the anticipation was nerve wracking and the results were beyond my wildest dream. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to try it again.” Jeff Shepherd, Lille Belle Farms, 2008 Scovie Grand Prize Winner.
