The finalists for the 2nd Annual Next Big Small Brand have been announced, by the New York Magazine’s Grub Street no less.

Deliberations went through the evening…the semi-finalists floored us with their entrepreneurialism and tasty morsels.  We wanted everyone to reap the rewards of the prize.  Unfortunately we had to narrow the bunch, but we are confident that we are going to see more than one of these incredible products on store shelves.

Heritage Radio Interview

Fernando Music on Hot Grease at Heritage Radio

With numerous shows dedicated in one way or another to the topic of food, Heritage Radio is one of the best things happening in the NY/National food conversation. Started by Patrick Martins of Heritage Foods USA with help from Alice Waters (no shortage of street cred here), the station is housed in a shipping container at Roberta’s in Bushwick.  It’s a fun place and one can’t help but feel the energy of the movement. When Rooster was asked by Hot Grease’s Nicole Taylor to come down and talk about The Next Big Small Brand contest and the winner on air, I high tailed it over… Listen to the full segment here: http://www.heritageradionetwork.com/episodes/578-Hot-Grease

New York Times Style Magazine Logo

If we had drafted a wish list for the Next Big Small Brand contest, an article in The New York Times would have been at the top.  So, you can imagine how ecstatic we were when this article posted the day after announcing the NBSB winner.

Adding to the excitement, the office had a day of giggles as it was initially written that Fernando and Fran were married, but the mistype was remedied quickly and the marriage was annulled.

If you were on the second floor of 21 Howard St, you would have seen the Rooster’s dancing.  A rare sighting, but we were pretty stoked after seeing that the Daily Heller write up about our little contest.

It's the Daily Heller, yo!
