Kennedy’s sales hit new record with new publishing team
by Angus Kennedy
Ok yes I know a self-congratulatory post but hear me out! Yes it was true, we lost a lot of money last year (it was stolen from Kennedy’s). Kennedy's were robbed of tens of thousands of pounds last year by a criminal gang faking my ID! Ha! But I have seen it all before. I’ve had it all and we always can make the hardships into our strengths.
Well, as a result a lot of people left the company and I worked my nuts off to sell and rebuild this business and there have been now some massive internal changes. But every cloud always has a silver lining and in this case, a gold one.
I am really pleased to welcome the new team here at Kennedy’s who have joined us and come with many, many years of experience: Owen, Craig and Simon. So yes, we are a newish team but the recent issue of the Kennedy’s Confection (print) in March has set a new record of being the biggest in revenue for the last 5 years (Ha!) not including Interpack.
And with this new web site and two more new web sites to come and a bigger and even better World Chocolate Forum this October, I just wanted to thank all our customers who stood with Kennedy’s during the time when we were robbed. It’s amazing how resilient this business really is and how much we are going to grow this year.
They say the biggest opportunities lie just behind what you once perceived to be your biggest obstacles and there is a great buzz here in the office and sales. That’s it for today, just to say thank you! Keep you posted as we are to make more announcements on lots of new highly creative media products this year.
