When I have the chance, I try to shop local and support small businesses. It’s nice to know that my money is staying in the community and contributing to the local economy.
When I first tried Cocina DeLeon Enchiladas a year ago, I instantly fell in love with them. Authentic Mexican food, made in Brookfield, that is oven ready! I was happy to see them in this week’s ad and decided to reach out to Linda Mulholland, Cocina DeLeon’s owner, to learn more about the product.
Origin: Kiel, Wisconsin
Milk: Cow’s Milk
Flavor Profile: Complex caramel & butterscotch ﬂavors along with a crystalline crunch
Serious question: Have you tried our Sendik’s Homemade Fresh Chips? If you’re a fan of chips (which, really…who isn’t?!), you really need to treat yourself to a bag (or multiple bags) of these!
Every day at our Mequon store, we make homemade chips. In fact, we have one part-time and three full-time Chip Makers whose jobs are to create this deliciousness seven days a week.
One thing I learned pretty quickly about when I started at Sendik’s is our community involvement. It became pretty clear to me that we’re committed to strengthening and developing the communities in which we work and live, and that’s something that I’m excited to be a part of.
Is it just me, or does cheese make everything better? I feel like I find a way to put cheese on anything I am cooking at home. So naturally, I buy a lot of cheese, and I like when I can get it for a good price. As you can imagine, I am a fan of Sendik’s Cheese of the Month specials. Every month, we highlight a new cheese at a great value.
For the month of January, we are featuring Parmigiano Reggiano, also known as “The King of Cheeses.” This cheese is arguably better than any parmesan that I’ve tasted before. (As I learned, parmesan is not parmigiano reggiano.) It’s intense, but not overpowering, and has a complex taste with nutty, caramel and buttery flavors. I’m also, as you might guess, a fan of the price. It is over half off, just $9.99lb through the end of January.
Seafood is one of my favorite foods, so I am naturally a big fan of Sendik’s Catch of the Week. Every week during January, we highlight a fish and offer it at a phenomenal price.
Now until January 28th, our Catch of the Week is Mahi Mahi. It’s a favorite among fish lovers, and it offers a high nutritional value. It’s high in protein — a six-ounce serving will provide you over half of your recommended daily value, and it is a low-fat fish.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting our Elm Grove Store where the Store Director, Kevin, gave 25 second-graders a tour around the store. These 7-8-year-olds from Brownies Troop #4810 were visiting the store to work on earning their “Snack Badge.”
As most of you probably already know, our popular promotion, 7 Days, 7 Ways to Save is currently in full swing! (I mean, really, how awesome is Milk Thursday?) We kicked off the event on Wednesday, January 8th with a free giveaway to the first 50 people in each of our 11 stores. Customers received a gift bag filled with Sendik’s items, including bottled water, a tumbler and a gift card. Each store also provided complimentary coffee and donuts.
Hi, I’m Marissa! I’m somewhat new to Sendik’s — I joined the team in November to help with events, social media and blogging. I’ve shopped the Red Bag before, but this career opportunity gives me the chance to learn the in’s and out’s of this local, family owned and operated company. I couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity — join me on my journey!
