2. Highlight your business by telling its story. 

3. Receive marketing tips and points from industry experts. 

4. Enter to win a Professional Marketing Package valued at approximately $1,500.

1. Highlight your best recipe,
2. Tell the story of how your business got started,
3. Testimonial video,
