Last month, QuickChek participated in a sponsorship event called Cooked & Uncorked. This event was hosted by the New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association (NJ FMBA). This Cooked & Uncorked event was the 8th Annual Firefighter Cook-Off and Food & Wine Tasting. There were over 1,000 people in attendance and $65,000 was raised over the course of the day. $32,500 will be donated to the St. Barnabas Burn Center and the remaining funds will go to the NJ FMBA’s foundation and dispersed to their charities of choice
This event gave QuickChek the opportunity to sample our delicious signature soups, receive some great feedback, meet some existing customers, and turn those who didn’t know we had soup into potential fans! Amanda Shymanski and Nicole Remo from our Sales & Merchandising Department were there to represent QuickChek and sample our soups. Amanda also had the pleasure of judging the cooking contest where firefighters were given the chance to create a recipe, plate it, and present it to a panel of judges.
