Kroger Grand Opening in Savannah

photo 1.jpg

 A BIG Welcome to Savannah’s New Kroger Store

And what an impressive store it is! It’s the largest Kroger in all of Georgia.  It is 125,000 square feet and even has a Jewelry Store and Clothing Department.

On top of all of that, it has a 30 foot display of Roger Wood Foods Original Lumberjacks! We were thrilled to be a part of the Grand Opening!

Baseball season…

has officially started folks. We’ll be honest- we could hardly contain our excitement. Baseball is one of the great American sports. You grab your friends or family, ride down to the ball park (wherever you are), fire up your tailgate grill and have some cold ones, then head on down to the game.

Nine innings…

(or more) can go on for awhile, so what do you do? You get that mouthwatering hot dog from the vendor. This is why we love baseball season y’all. What is better than a hot dog in a ball park on a warm day? The answer is absolutely nothing. This little piece of heaven is tradition.

Let’s talk about memories…

Some of us remember enjoying this pass-time many a year ago with our Grandpap or Dad. Some of us remember a time when our rowdy group of college buds spent long hours at the ball park. Others remember the family affair that a baseball game can be. The glory about baseball is- it appeals to all ages and both genders. It’s America’s game, rich in tradition and spirit. 

So get your “Hey Batta Batta” ready, sit, relax and enjoy the game.

We’re so Pinteresting!

Do you spend hours upon hours gathering the best home decorating tips and recipes on Pinterest? You are not alone… Although we skip the home decorating part, we have spent ample time over the past year developing our Pinterest boards. We have a board for every meal.

It’s your one-stop shop for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert plus tailgating ideas, appetizers and beautiful scenes of Savannah. We even put a little bit of Roger Wood’s history on there. Do you love Southern favorites? So do we! So much so that we have a Southern Cookin’ board. Warm weather is hopefully around the corner hence our Grillin’ board.

Pinterest

For those of you that haven’t jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon yet, here is how Pinterest describes itself, “where you go to discover new things and collect stuff you love. If you find something online you want to build, cook, buy or do, just Pin It to your board…” Pinterest is a world unto itself to escape into. We particularly like the infinite amount of recipes to look through on Pinterest. We’re not just talking about our recipes. There are recipes that you’ve never even imagined on there that look absolutely amazing. You pin the ones you like to boards that you create. Boards help you organize your pins and make it easier for your profile viewers to follow the pins they are interested in.

Now that you know about this new found world or if you’re already a pinner, follow us! We’re just so Pinteresting!

Roger Wood has been in business since 1936. Two-thousand thirteen was the year we went fully social. We have customers all over the Southeast. Social media is the way we reach all of you!

You may or may not know that we have a Roger Wood Foods twitter account. We post recipes, in-office news, employee photos, product info- anything that you might be interested in.

But, the best part of twitter is that all of you post pictures, videos and tweets about us!

It’s an awesome feeling to find a picture of a meal with our product as a key ingredient. Sometimes, it’s a simple recipe- Roger Wood sausage with mustard. Sometimes, it’s a masterpiece- crab, tilapia, red rice and Roger Wood sausage.

Y’all get so creative. Your pictures and videos make us hungry at our desks during the work week.

We even tweet with JustFoodERP! They’re one of our every day favorites…

Other tweets we receive concern location. You’ve probably heard that Roger Wood products are mostly in the Southeast. We haven’t quite gotten to California yet. (Although it is a long term goal!) We get questions all the time asking where you can find Roger Wood products. Thank you! Thank you for actively asking us questions through twitter or Facebook. We appreciate each and every one of you, and we want to help you in any way that we are able.

One recent tweet told the story of how 4 Lumber Jack cartons got to Seattle, Washington. We love hearing these stories!

Moral of this post:
Y’all are truly the BEST customers any company could ask for.

PS. Please continue to tweet and message us! We enjoy hearing from you!

Tis’ The Christmas Season

Christmas

The holiday season warms your soul and helps you appreciate every blessing bestowed upon you.

It’s the time when you tell your family members how much they mean to you either through gifts or thoughtful acts. It’s the time when you really think of those less fortunate than you, and you help fill the space under their trees. It’s cold, and while you are warm in front of your fire, there are others who are out living in the frost. Tis’ the Christmas season when we think of others. It’s one of the reasons that it is so special. Continue Reading
