How Long Do Bubblegumballs Last?

How long are my gumballs good for?

Ever wonder how long your gumballs will last? 
When will my gumballs expire? 
What is the shelf life of gumballs? 
We get these questions often and it just so happens that our bulk gumballs have a shelf life of 24+ months if stored in a cool dry place.
 In some circumstances they last even longer. 
We opened and chewed on a 850 count case that was still good three years after production. 
However, extreme climates and conditions can reduce the optimal lifespan of some boxes of gum.

Signed MSPA for Next Year..!

Okay, so MSPA isn't being held in L.A., or anywhere in Hawaii, or Florida coast, or even anywhere warm, Pittsburgh? Fine.
Anyway, I already signed up for next year.
Anyone and everyone should check out the MSPA.

Why? Because the meetings/seminars/speakers have incredible ideas they share that applies to ANY work-related field!
I'm not even sure they realize it, but the round-tables, vendors, and speakers were quite inspiring.
I only signed up for 1 talk, and it was only 1 hour long, went by too fast!
I couldn't believe the incredible information about mystery shopping that can apply to absolutely any field.
One part that was so amazing was a company I used to shop with all the time hires private investigators, real ones! How fun!

They don't train them, tho, just hire them.
Anyway, I was so inspired, that I went out and applied to at least about a dozen jobs, and most all of them responded back.
I accepted 3 of them!
Now I have the work I want, when I want.
It's just a matter of time to see if I make enuf to travel to the MSPA convention next year.
What the heck is in Pittsburgh?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are there, must be something to it...

New Courier Route

As if a bulk vending route wasn’t enuf, I went and added a courier route.
New and exciting, too!
I like the road, what can I say, and I already have a St. Christopher medal for my transportation.
May Gd bless and protect us on our roads.

There Are Rescues Everywhere!

It looks like there are rescues for every main breed, and plenty of mixed-breed rescues.
Too many to list here.
Please check your local ASPCA only because those animals go first.
If u want specific breeds, the American Kennel Club has a long list
of Purebred Rescue groups, many listed by state.
The Bichon Frise group is only in New York.
The popular breeds, such as Labradors, can be found in most states.
Please check Breed Temperament for your perfect match.
They don't advertise, but u can often find all sorts of critters that the ASPCA takes in,
so don't forget the kitties/bunnies/chickens/iguanas/birds, etc...

Any Bichon-Frise needs to be rescued?
Check it out!

Honor Boxes

Honor/Donation Boxes are Exactly how I want to live my life.
I am considering putting up my bulk vending route and move over
to Honor Boxes.
I like everything about it.
It's totally warm/fuzzies when the dollars/coins add up, with honor..!
They are clear boxes, the coins are in plain site, and doing the math backs it up.
Honestly? I love it!

Dog N Kitty City

One of my locations today happened to ask in passing if I know of any adoption groups they could sponsor for an adoption event. I said ‘YES’ before he finished the question. Do I know of adoption groups? Are u kidding?! No one asked before! Do I know of any ‘No-Kill’ Adoption groups? Yes, but they are all too few.
Anyway, I am so thankful that/if his store holds an adoption event.
Dog N Kitty City is No-Kill mostly because they barely have enuf room to house their puppies and kitties.

The building is in an industrial area, all concrete, 1-story little bungalow, yet they still manage to have shaded outdoor runs for both dogs and cats.
The dogs and cats have so much kibble.
Tons of food donations all the time.
Plenty of water 24/7.
They have to change the cat litter almost every day because of possible bacteria.
I imagine that is mostly what drives costs up.
A nearby vet does the best they can, but they aren’t wealthy either.
One large donation/expenditure that came in went to cooling units for the dog runs. Nice!
Anyway, thanku sir just for asking.
That simple question made my day.
P.S., Adoption events help your business and theirs.
