Sauerkraut Sunday: Business is Booming Edition

Sauerkraut Sunday: Business is Booming Edition

Today’s Sauerkraut Sunday is checking in with Or Derv Foods in Akron.  The little company (7 people) got a write up on Ohio.comdetailing their success making Sauerkraut Balls.  Apparently the company somehow puts out 100,000 per week and sells to places like Sams Club.

On to the purpose of Sauerkraut Sundays… As I go through the week, I use Twitter to send out little updates and links.  I realize that I do this quite a bit and that not all of you use Twitter, so with that in mind I’d like to take Sunday to do sort of a week in review.  I’ve selected the most useful of my tweets from the last week and placed them in to the categories that I use in this blog.
