The Pick - Vol. 3

Posted

It’s hard to believe the end of January 2015 could come so fast. The last half of 2014 kept us busy, working on bringing you the best eco-friendly picks, skewers, and serve-ware on the planet. We’ve made improvements this year which we are excited to share, new holiday themed picks, customized skewers, and a new online shopping experience, to name a few.

We spent two weeks in China last November, meeting with current and new manufacturers. A large part of our trip was focused on securing bamboo raw materials for 2015 and beyond. We also spent time exploring new products to add to our line.

It was great to connect with some of you at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. We received a lot of feedback from culinary professionals and hospitality groups expressing interest in customized picks and skewers with company logos! We are working diligently to set up a way to deliver on that and will be sure to update you with news as we move forward.

Happy 2015!
Aaron Motola - President

New Product in the warehouse…
9 Inch Bamboo Flower Plate!

This decorative plate design is made of bamboo husk, a product that naturally falls off as the plant grows.




Changes we think you’ll like…

Our new webstore was launched in October and the sleek new style offers a more organized layout with new categories and a easier search function.

Once you register for a new account, ordering is a breeze. You can view and repeat past orders, and save multiple ship to addresses, so all future orders can be completed in just a few minutes.

Pick On Us shipping supervisor’s focus is on customer satisfaction

Shipping supervisor Michael Quinn has seen Pick On Us grow a lot in the four years he has been with the company. “We’ve had to adapt our processes to accommodate shipping a much higher volume of product to a larger number of customers as we’ve grown.” said Michael. Michael has a background in design and managing people. He draws on that past experience to help him maintain a smooth-running shipping department. “No matter how busy we get, our focus is on keeping our customers happy by getting accurate orders into their hands on time, and I’m very proud of our track record.”


Best part of working at Pick On Us:
“We have a great work environment and business culture. Our products are not only useful but they are creative. That makes them fun to sell.”

Excited About:
Michael says Pick On Us has recently installed a laser that allows us to customize bamboo skewers with low minimums and short lead-times.

Favorite product:
Bamboo half dish. "It’s a really cool looking plate cut from a large piece of bamboo! They are great for luaus, sushi parties and BBQ shish kabobs."

Free time:
Michael and wife Katie are proud parents to newborn Mickey and 16-month-old Carter, so they don’t really know what free time is right now. But Michael plans to teach the boys rock climbing and surfing real soon.
