Happy New Year–2011 is going to be Big

Yesterday’s yoga class really hit the nail on the head for the coming year: “Wish big, Breath Big, Think Big.” Here at Challah Connection, we are thinking BIG for 2011. Check out our plans:

1) Bigger Warehouse Space: We are planning a move into a new warehouse space that will be about 5 times our existing space. After 4 consecutive years of 20%+ growth each year, it’s time. We’ll be adding more staff, more merchandise and better procedures designed to increased quality control.

2) More catalogs: We tested a holiday catalog for Hanukkah/Holiday ’10 and apparently there are many of you who prefer catalog shopping to online shopping. We respect those who prefer to stick with the web for environmental reasons, but we are pleased to provide others this new way to shop for our terrific products. Click here to request our upcoming catalog for Purim Gifts.

3) New Products: You have been loving all of the new gifts we have been creating for you so we have great, big new product ideas for 2011. Over the recent holidays, in addition to our scrumptious holiday food gifts, you bought lots of baseball merchandise, Hanukkah ornaments, Judaica, books (lots of How to Raise a Jewish Dog!), Money clips, Jewish placemats and Jewish fine art. We will continue to expand our products with the goal of ensuring our spot as your favorite gift shop for all of your recipients–Jewish or not! Speaking of scrumptious holiday food gifts, in addition to our holiday gift baskets you “ate” up our kosher gift towers and fresh fruit baskets; both brand new categories introduced for Hanukkah & Christmas 2010.

4) Not Just Jewish! Did you know that Challah Connection has become a true destination for Christmas Gift Baskets? It’s true! “Jewish” baked goods such as challah, babka, rugelach and black and white cookies are popular for Christmas and Easter. As a matter of fact our Challah Maven French Toast Kit and Challah Variety Pack fed many happy families on Christmas morning. This is really exciting to us and we are kvelling that our gifts are in such demand by those outside our Jewish family. From a happy customer:

Your customer service has always been fantastic and everyone I have ever spoken to very helpful. You are a great alternative to places like Harry and David. Keep up the good work.”

We have tremendous respect for our friends Harry & David (another Jewish company–their last name is Rosenberg), but hey guys–here we come!

Thank you all for a terrific 2010 and we look forward to a prosperous 2011.
“Wish big, Breath Big, Think Big.”
