The New year blues have immediately kicked in with atrocious weather dampening various parts of the UK, London was like a huge swimming bath!
Having an effect on the business slightly, let this not discourage the fact that we are shifting our popular chilli Oil by the tens every week, to which I sincerely hope the new plastic jars arrive soon, we are running dangerously low!! But shows we are in high demand, new problems… great!
The Fishball front, our competitors have been delayed in delivery, which gave us an opportunity to provide surplus stock to fruitful customers. This meant prospective customers who normally buy the other brand couldn’t because the oriental store didn’t have anything to sell. So who do they turn to instead…? Bingo! This is why a full shelf is always a good shelf!
It has been a while since the last blog, busy with the Christmas rush and now 2015 has pounced from outta nowhere!!
A quick round up of what has happened.
A mad rush to grab “what you can” in the oriental stores, and most definitely many personal visitations from regular customers. Here, customer service is on par as all walked away reasonably happy, although some products were completely sold out… (hey, business was a booming!)
Stores doubled up taking advantage of those early birds, and needless to say, mayhem reached the stores, and early.
Now 2015 has approached, the New Year rush also commenced!! Luckily we was prepared and stocked sufficiently to cater for those last minute stragglers.
Another week, another round up, check in for more weekly updates.
A very productive week, slamming the above audio books into my brain!! Helping the business to expand in times of economic pressure and hardship. These audio books provide an in depth understanding of Selling, Closing, and while others retreat under bad times, they help motivate one to achieve and do more.
The past week we have announced new life to the business for 2015 with a rebranding structure that hopefully regains our exposure back in the market place, in these uncertain times.
Using free tools such as Face Book, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn has enabled the business to connect with other business owners and network with a range of industries. This may or may not be relevant for some but it is about becoming known. Currently, we are in obscurity, nobody knows us. These tools will change that.
Keep posted for more information on our business strategies and how we will shine in the New Year! Nose to the floor, and keep grinding peoples.
From all of us at Sun Wah Foods, Kung Hei Fat Choi! We wish you a year as sweet as honey, with lots of money and good food in your tummy! Good luck, good fortune and above all else, good health and happiness! 恭喜發財
As part of the festivities, we soaked up the atmosphere in London’s Chinatown. Here is a short video of a Chinese Qi-Lin (unicorn) Dance along with some pics of the day. Enjoy!
Introducing the newest addition to our range, Sun Wah Pure Chilli Oil.
Drizzle into your wok to add some fire into your cooking or simply use as a dressing with an aromatic kick! Our new Sun Wah Pure Chilli Oil has all the flavour and taste of our bestseller chilli oil with shrimp bits, but without the bits. Pure and smooth!
Available at most good oriental supermarkets. Find out where.
So… having mastered the art of cooking up the freshest and tastiest fishballs, we’ve decided to try our hand, or feet rather, at mastery with footballs. And that is why when the opportunity to join the annual Kam Kee Chinese Summer League arose, we jumped at the chance! It’s a fantastic way of getting family and friends together for good fun, exercise and a healthy bit of competition.
We will be playing every Sunday this summer at Market Road pitches near Kings Cross, London. Results so far have been, shall we say, less than desirable, so if you’re nearby, come and say hello and help support the team!
