To Our Dearest Supporters
by Teresa Guerin
For us to meet the ongoing needs of our family, customers, and community, we’ve decided to pause our delivery service for an indefinite time. We are NOT going away. This time will be spent organizing our business in a way that makes sense for everyone. It’s an exciting time that we’ll use to look at who we are, what we’re doing and how we’re doing it - all with the end goal of being a stronger and more valuable, small-business in our community. It’s most important to us that our family-values and business-values are aligned and we know that everyone will benefit from this time well spent.
This past year has been many things for many people, and not just in our community, but around the world. The ups and downs of 2020 had most folks reevaluating pieces of their lives and folks are still regrouping and finding a “new” norm. This is true for our family and likely for yours, too.
When The Produce Squad started from a spark, we had no idea the flame it would burn in to, and an amazing blaze at that! Our first week, we delivered 7 hand-made, wooden crates full of fresh produce to our neighbors’ doorsteps and to-date we’ve made over 3,000 deliveries.
The saying goes that you don’t have a business until you have a paying customer. We are a wonderful, small-business because of YOU. You believe in us and this keeps us moving forward.
This is a bittersweet moment, as we’ll miss the absence of interacting with our customers and produce partners during this pause. Please know that we do not have a timeline as we are focused on accomplishing several goals before we resume. We know that we’ll be better for this pause and we hope to pickup with you right where we left off.
If you have an active, recurring delivery with us it has been paused indefinitely. When our delivery service resumes, your account will only resume with your permission.
In the meantime, we ask you stay in touch with us through our social media on Facebook and Instagram. Also, you can subscribe to our email by scrolling to the bottom of our homepage on our website and entering your email address.
Until then, best regards from all of us at The Produce Squad!
