The submission deadline for our Next Big Small Brand Contest may have already ended, but the real fun is about to begin. We are so excited to review all 140 entries – yes, 140! We also received some amazing press – thanks to The Daily Heller and Tasting Table, plus all of the other great blogs that showed us their support!

It’s great to see that our contest really inspired so many of you out there. We were all really impressed by the range and quality of the submissions. It’s going to be a tough one. Out of all 140 entries, we will choose 10 semi-finalists to come in for a brief “meet-and-greet.” This may include a tasting or a short pitch.

Out of our 10 semi-finalists, we’ll then go on to choose 5 finalists. Our 5 finalists will be contacted on/by January 5th. Finalists will then present their product or concept in person to a panel of judges in a showcase on January 12th!

Stay tuned for more updates. You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Everyone’s going to want to know how it all ends. It’ll be a good ending – we promise!
