Sweet Ballz

It took balls for us to do this.

There are many delicious recipes for cake balls across the world today – many of which have been passed down from generation-to-generation. From mothers and grandmothers to local bakeries, the comfort of a sweet, delicious cake ball can be found almost anywhere.

So why, you ask, would we be so crazy to go up against the likes of Aunt Fanny out in Florida and all of the thousands of small-town bakeries across the country? Well that’s where our founder James McDonald comes into play.

A young entrepreneur and lifetime “foodie,” James had himself been making cake balls for friends and family for a long time. James’ cake balls became a staple at many dinner parties, holiday get-togethers and birthdays.

One night, while sharing a few of his creations at a party, one of James’ friends suggested how amazing it would be if he could harness the moist, fresh flavor of his cake balls and share them with stores across the country. Following months of experimenting with his recipes and exploring various packaging techniques to ensure fresh flavor from the oven to the shelf, Sweet Ballz was born.

Now, with nearly 5,000 stores carrying Sweet Ballz throughout the country, you can get the fresh, savory taste of a homemade cake ball anytime you want.

Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Brew

Triple Ginger Brew

Triple Ginger Brew

We’re big fans of ginger here at Trader Joe’s. From Gingerbread (Mix) to our oh-so-popular Triple Ginger Snaps, ginger is a flavor that always leaves us wanting more. And more is what you’ll get from Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Brew.

We’ve always done well with ginger brews — meaning, we’ve sold vast amounts because, apparently, you really like ginger brew. One comment we heard over and over from ginger aficionados was this: more ginger. So we set out to find just that. Problem was, we couldn’t find it. So we had to create it. We worked hand-in-hand with our supplier and put this Brew through a number of taste tests. Finally, we got it right. The difference is a substantial amount of fresh ginger that’s added during the brewing process, giving this lightly-carbonated, non-alcoholic drink a big bite — perfect for ginger devotees.

Because Triple Ginger Brew is not your average soda, we knew we couldn’t put it in an average package. Instead, you’ll find Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Brew in an old-fashioned, emerald green, 750ml glass bottle with a swing-top closure. It’s a bottle that lives up to the Brew inside. And our price of $2.99 a bottle lives up to our value of, well, value!

PizzaRev Pasadena Opening Soon @pizzarevco @chipotle

The recently closed Pei Wei location in the Hastings Ranch area of Pasadena is now scheduled to open as a PizzaRev, think of PizzaRev as a Chipotle for Pizza, customized Pizza, Pizza Your Way, very similar to Blaze.

The PizzaRev site has the location of the Pasadena location as:

Pasadena, CA

3801 E. Foothill Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91107

But as the address of the previous occupant is 3455, we believe this is in error and expect this to be corrected on the website. Pie Squared Pizza, LLC is the parent company of PizzaRev.

The correct address is located next to the popular burger joint, Hook Burger Bistro.

PizzaRev recently opened in Burbank and has been on an aggressive campaign of opening locations in the Southern California area.

As validation of the PizzaRev model, there are other businesses that are in the space, including Blaze in the Playhouse District of Pasadena, which has lines out the door on any given night, especially as the Laemmle Theater is next door and Vroman’s is also next door.

Now Chipotle is entering the space with Pizzeria Locale stores scheduled to open.

Chipotle is the leader in customized fast service food.

Northern or Southern CA: Where should you build your startup?

Where should you build your startup?

Do You REALLY Need to be in the Bay Area?

Map of Southern California Startups by Benjamin F. Kuo. Used with Permission.

 Baxter Lecture Hall, Caltech

Registration and Continental Breakfast: 8:00 a.m.
Program: 9:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.
Post-program Coffee & Networking with Speakers: 11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Southern California’s startup community has come a long way, but has it fully emerged from the Bay Area’s shadow? Although companies, such as Cornerstone OnDemand, Snapchat and Maker Studios, grab headlines, the engine of this community is comprised of hundreds of entrepreneurs quietly building products and services that soon will disrupt established industries. A vibrant community of mentors, investors, accelerators and events has emerged to support these entrepreneurs and their companies. Yet, the allure of the Bay Area still beckons companies to move north.

In this very unique program, we will bring together local and SF-based entrepreneurs to discuss the resources in their startup communities that made a difference in building their companies.  Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with the speakers and ask questions about how to build a successful company in Southern California.

This program is designed for entrepreneurs, VCs, angel investors, advisors, strategic partners, service professionals and vendors in the startup community.  Key Questions we will seek to answer are: 

  • Do you need to relocate to the Bay Area to raise money?
  • Can you access the Bay Area’s benefits while remaining in Southern California?
  • What resources are unique to Southern California that startups can access today?
  • What has worked and what hasn’t for SF’s startup community and how can we apply those lessons here?
