December Header - Holiday Entertaining

December Promotion Ideas

  • Create in-aisle displays to feature the many frozen and refrigerated appetizers that can be presented elegantly for entertaining guests. Highlight the wide assortment of cheeses, showcasing a “cheese of the week” and what cracker, bread, fruit and/or wine pairing would go best with that selection.
  • Present and offer samplings of the many desserts in the cool aisles – share preparation and presentation ideas to simplify and at the same time enhance holiday secrets and ideas for entertaining.
  • Invite a local chef or food expert to appear in the cool aisles during December weekends to share holiday secrets and ideas for entertaining.
  • Remember to focus on your e-marketing and connecting with customers via email, e-newsletters, Facebook and more. Feature “Secret Weapon” messaging and holiday entertaining ideas as well as good wishes for the holidays and the New Year. The holidays are a great time to reinforce brand loyalty and thank customers for their year-round business and support.

On this special day, have fun and feature the ready-to-bake brownies in the refrigerated dairy aisles. Provide special pricing, host sampling and taste tests and even cross-merchandise with frozens by topping the baked brownies with ice cream!

December 21 is National Fried Shrimp Day

A great day to put the spotlight on the variety of shrimp selections in the frozen food aisle – offer special deals and feature recipes for sauces and dips to bring additional attention to the category.
