Thank you so much, Mark and Bees! I can’t tell you how happy I was with the professionalism, care, and integrity that the bees demonstrated at this event (2022 Natural Products Expo West). They exceeded my expectations and reduced my stress level. I look forward to working with this great team again next time!
Janet Armstrong | Senior Technical Sales & Culinary Manager | Mars Food
This recap is fantastic! Our team loves seeing the photos of both the Bees and consumers along with the detailed recap of people sampled, hummus sold, and the customer feedback! We also saw an improvement on ROI this round 😊GREAT JOB, keep it up, and many thanks to you and all the Bees!

Great seeing the Bee Team at the show!!! The demo specialists you assigned to me were excellent and I cannot say enough good things about Hernan. He was stellar and I give him 5 stars! Really one of your best Bee representatives! Speaks highly of the quality of demo specialists you hire.

I wanted to take a moment to give you some feedback about your Demo person. She is utterly the most professional demo person I have ever seen at our store. She is conscious of food safety and courteous to our team and the customers. Unlike many other demo people in other companies, she is never caught texting on her phone (or chatting with other demo people) and spends each moment she has with every customer selling her product and explaining what a great product it is. She procures thoughtful pairing ideas and it really seems that she enjoys her job. I have never once had to talk to her about something she is doing wrong. She is always welcome at our store and in fact, I would even prefer her as she is always a pleasure to work with.
Misty Mchone Specialty Team Leader Whole Foods Paradise Valley
I just received feedback from this store that the girl who did the demo there recently did a really good job and got every single person who walked in the door to try it and sold a lot of product. Good job!
Mark Turner VP of Sales Treeline Cheese
I just want to thank you and your team personally for all the hard work you do to make the show a success. I appreciate that you guys take care of all the day to day details while I'm sleeping... It makes a big difference when there are folks promoting, welcoming and dispersing information during an event like this. I also appreciate that you send me the daily updates. This is how I gage the success of the show...by how the general public perceives our efforts. Once again, thank you for another terrific Flower Show season and I wish you and your team all the best!

"I’ve worked with Busy Bee for over 2 years and they have proven to be a valued agency partner. Busy Bee has showcased its sampling and event execution expertise on a number of brand initiatives within the Venturing & Emerging Brands (VEB) group, including illy issimo. Busy Bee’s sampling expertise goes beyond just handing out samples to consumers – their focus is on delivering a brand experience that drives awareness, sales and overall brand engagement. Their flexibility, willingness to go above and beyond and desire to be an integrated part of our team has made VEB’s relationship with Busy Bee highly rewarding. In addition to working on specific brand initiatives for illy issimo, I’ve called on Busy Bee to help with events promoting VEB overall such as the Be Healthy Boston Conference. With Busy Bee, I know that I have a partner that can jump on a project and execute it with excellence, on time and on budget. VEB relies on strategic sampling in retail and events to grow our brands and we’re fortunate to have a great partner like Busy Bee helping us to achieve our business objectives."

"Just wanted to send a note of thanks for rolling your big green truck into Fairview last week. It was so much fun meeting your enthusiastic bunch and watching you work your magic during your demo. I learned so much from listening to your talking points. And from watching your mad parking skills!!
Thanks also for your great attitude when you blew through the inventory early. Our Grocery Team Leader sends his apologies for not having more product on hand. You all sailed through the challenge seamlessly and our guests still got to sample your drinks and learn more about your company.
Please come again. You are always welcome to the store with the red tractor."

"I just wanted to reach out and tell you how HAPPY I am with your service, professionalism and communication skills that you exhibit for the Busy Bee brand and our Earthbound Farm brand. I am lucky to work with such professional, well mannered and enthusiastic people. Your demo teams across the US consistently blow other demonstrators out of the water and I am thankful that Paul Calas recommended you to us!
I wanted to pass this note along on the heels of a terrible demo experience with a company to remain nameless, that we were forced to use for demo in Manhattan yesterday.
So again, thank you! I greatly appreciate all of you and your commitment to my brand."

"We’ve had Jill from your company at our Whole Foods store 3 times over the past few weeks demoing CasCal Soda. I just wanted to pass along my comments about the excellent demo set-up she puts together and her infectious positive attitude. What a delight!

"I am writing to recommend Busy Bee Promotions. I have worked with Busy Bee on behalf of Starbucks for over 9 years.
During that time Busy Bee has provided a variety of services to Starbucks. The services have included design, production, storage and deployment of various Starbucks marketing materials, printed materials and signage. Their attention to detail and timeliness have always been consistent. Our collateral always arrived on time and in pristine condition.
An example of their level of professionalism and timeliness occurred this year. We had several hundred requests for proprietary, in-store, signage to be produced, stored and shipped to our stores coast to coast and every request was met with success in all areas.
Busy Bee is very responsive and I have always had 100% confidence in their ability to deliver, time and time again.
I would strongly recommend, without hesitation, Busy Bee to another company. Thank you.
