Searching for the secret family recipe.

Last week a few of us headed down to Knoxville, Tennessee to present some work and give some of the new folks on the team a chance to learn everything there is to know about Bush’s Best® Beans. The trip included a visit to the corporate offices, the factory and the Bush’s Café & Museum.

We had a blast. A great recap for the veterans on the team, and educational for the rookies, we covered a range of subjects including their current manufacturing techniques, their incredibly high standards for quality and the rich history that has served as the foundation for it all. One observation we made was that most everyone within the company was on a first-name basis. While Bush’s has grown significantly since 1906, they all still treat one another like family.

It’s an honor to work for a brand that takes pride in both their people and their products. If you get a chance, stop by the Bush’s Café & Museum for yourself. It’s open to the public and the homemade pinto bean pie is outstanding. If you’re lucky, you might even have a chance to talk to Duke. Good luck with that. We’re all dog lovers and we couldn’t get a single word out of him.

Fair Go Bro

 We loved this Virgin Mobile Australia promotion featuring Springfieldian Doug Pitt. Maybe you’ve heard of his more famous brother? The second-most-famous-Pitt-in-the-family is a familiar face to some around here as the good folks at our sister agency TAP have helped with Mr. Pitt’s charitable organization Care To Learn. Go show the Like.

Off to the races

The agency took in a Springfield Cardinals ballgame last week. And when you take the agency to a ballgame, they have a few beers. And after a few beers, they end up on tricycles racing around the dirt. And when they end up racing tricycles racing around the dirt…

You get the rest.

The goosebumples, still

Here’s a really nice user video capturing the 2011 World Series high on which 99.999% of all Cardinal fans are still riding. Fan or not, brings a smile to any lover of the sport.


UPDATE: Sorry, it appears original video has been switched to private. Bummer.
