Today we’d like to introduce you to Jaimee Pugh.
Hi Jaimee, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I threw my mom a paint & sip birthday party and thought it would be cute to have drinks and a charcuterie board. I did my research and created my first board and it was a hit with all of her friends. I posted a picture of the board and had people inquiring how they could order one. The next day I made an Instagram page, a menu and an order form. Through word of mouth and social media, I have gained a lot of reoccurring and new business.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been a smooth road. I wish I was busier and actually making more profit but I love when an order does come in and I get to create it I love it. There are so many charcuterie businesses in OC & LA and a lot of people have been around longer than me so there’s a lot of competition. I try to market myself as much as possible. I try to go to as many pop-ups as I can.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Charcute For You is a charcuterie business. We serve OC & LA and have you covered for all custom grazing and charcuterie options. I offer reasonable pricing for my boards and tables and offer delivery and pickup options for my customers.
We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
The luck of having supportive friends and peers who support your business and shout you out on social media and to others to help grow your business. Those people have been my good luck charms and I’m forever grateful.
