February 28 - We're Hitting The Road!

March and early April can be a bit quiet in the Republic, so we decided it would be the perfect time for a road trip! Starting next weekend, March 9-10, we'll be packing up our Traveling Test Kitchen and hitting the road. Our goal? Visit Citizens throughout the state and have them give us feedback on some new products we're thinking of rolling out this summer. We hope to see you along the way!

March 8 - First Stop: Traverse City!

Our Traveling Test Kitchen makes its inaugural appearance this weekend at our Traverse City store . Pop in on Saturday or Sunday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and be among the first to sample some super secret products that we might roll out this summer. Give us your input, and you'll be registered to win a Cherry Republic Gift Box!

March 15 - Next Stop: Holland!

After an unforgettable opening weekend in Traverse City, our staff and the Traveling Test Kitchen make their way down to the Holland store this weekend. Pop in on Saturday or Sunday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and be among the first to sample a few super secret products that we might roll out this summer. Give us your input, and you'll be registered to win a Cherry Republic Gift Box!

March 22 - Traveling Test Kitchen A Hit In Holland!

Last weekend our Traveling Test Kitchen meandered down the road to lovely Holland, MI. Being St. Patty's Day weekend, downtown was abuzz with happy-go-lucky and hungry people! Cherry Ambassadors Karen, Ellen and Carole (pictured above) along with Tina, Katy, Steve and the whole Holland store staff had a great time helping folks sample our super-secret new products. Next stop is this weekend in Glen Arbor  from 10 to 3 Saturday and Sunday. Hope to see you there!

March 29 - They Came, They Tasted, They Voted!

If you've been following our Traveling Test Kitchen, you'll know last weekend we set up shop at our Glen Arbor campus. Since our Great Hall is in the midst of renovations, we welcomed taste-testers at The Winery, where Citizens munched new secret snack mixes and sodas. Congrats to Laura from Grand Rapids who won a Little Six Spring Gift Tin for participating in our Test Kitchen survey. This weekend we travel to Wolverine Country as we visit our Ann Arbor store . Stop by Saturday or Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to see for yourself what all the buzz is about!

April 4 - Neither Snow, Nor Rain ...

If there's one thing our Citizens are, it's hearty. Case in point, the warm turnout we received inside our Ann Arbor store last weekend despite the cold weather outside. Why brave the late-March snow and sleet? To experience our Traveling Test Kitchen, of course! All weekend long we welcomed the smiling faces (see above!) of those coming to taste-test our new products and give us their feedback. Congratulations to Elizabeth from Ann Arbor, the winner of our Little Six Spring Gift Tin . Be sure to join us this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. as we travel to our Frankenmuth store.

April 12 - Fun Times In Frankenmuth!

Our Traveling Test Kitchen made a stop at our busy (and do we mean BUSY!) Frankenmuth store last weekend. People sipped and sampled our super secret new products and registered to win a Little Six Spring Gift Tin. Congratulations to Noah from Brownstown, Michigan! This Saturday and Sunday marks our final stop at our beautiful downtown Charlevoix store. Stop by from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and see what all the buzz is about!

April 18 - That's A Wrap!

Our Traveling Test Kitchen sailed into 'Charlevoix the Beautiful' last weekend for our sixth and final stop. A nice mix of local residents and visitors stopped by our Charlevoix store to taste-test our top-secret products. Congratulations to Alisa from Rodney who was the lucky winner of our Little Six Spring Gift Tin. Now that our Test Kitchen has wrapped up, keep your eyes open for a new product or two over the next few months. Thanks to all who participated in this fun trip through Michigan!
