It’s been a few weeks since my last post and oh how the world has changed! As I do with the stock markets and did as a pilot in the Marine Corps, I’ve just been taking it all in; watching the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has already impacted so many facets of our lives.
I have a lot of thoughts about the direction I see retail/consumer businesses heading, but I’ll save those for future posts. Today I want to provide an update on Fifth & Cherry.
At Fifth & Cherry, with our forever cutting boards, we’re leading the Forever Retail Movement with compassion & empathy. Sometimes returns are made because of unforeseen life events. No matter the reason, we always treat our customers compassionately and with respect. We’re honored when you bring our cutting boards into your homes and gift our boards to your loved ones. It’s a responsibility we take seriously. If you ever have an issue with our boards, or just need to return it, for whatever reason, we’re here to help. We were humbled by this note that a customer included in the box when he had to return his board. We are incredibly blessed to have customers like this and the community that we’re building.
This year give your Valentine a gift they will use and cherish forever: a Fifth & Cherry Forever Cutting Board. As you know, in today’s disposable society, very few items have sentimental value. Most items are expected to be used a few times and thrown away.
The kitchen is the true center of activity in the home; it’s where you’ll carve your first turkey, make cookies with your grandmother, teach your children to cook, laugh with your partner and cry to your best friend. The kitchen is where love, warmth, and memories live. Our boards are designed to be with you every step of the way as you make those memories.
I’d like to tell you that my favorite pizza recipe (link at the end of this post) has helped me lose almost 60 pounds since the start of 2019 and helped me co-found Fifth & Cherry with my wife Tanya, but that’s only partly true.
Fifth & Cherry is growing again. Introducing our custom line of boards. Like every F&C cutting board, they last forever and are refinished for free forever.
We’re super excited to announce today that we’ve teamed up with Chef Anthony Serrano, who has signed on as a Fifth & Cherry Brand Ambassador!
In a world filled with disposable goods, we get excited when we see companies commit to making products that are built to last.
“Cook for someone else, take a moment to prepare food not simply because you’re hungry but because cooking is an act that makes others feel better -- and making others feel better why we’re here.” Sam Sifton New York Times.
These are the cutting boards that were used in Kitchen Arena at the World Food Championships. They were run through a commercial DISHWASHER using a commercial solvent cleaner 😳😬😫 at least 7-10 times before we found out about it and stopped them!
9/11 changed everything for almost everyone. It did for me. Choose to live. Choose to fight. Choose to win.
Cheap pricing is used as a means to justify spending your money on the next new vacuum, pressure cooker, mixer, printer, or piece of clothing. The selling point is rarely about how a product is produced with such high standards that it’s the last vacuum, pressure cooker, mixer, printer or pair of jeans that you’ll ever need.
According to a study in the journal Environmental Science and Technology (mentioned in this National Geographic article from last October) it's possible that humans may be consuming anywhere from 39,000 to 52,000 microplastic particles a year.
One thing that I’m truly proud of, and that reflects our values in both a material and symbolic way, is the fact that we make products that are built to last a lifetime and beyond.
Committing to creating a truly superior product comes with some special benefits that might not be obvious. One of those benefits is the ability to be completely transparent about what you do.
Contrary to what many people believe, sharp knives are actually far safer than dull knives.
Why are Fifth & Cherry cutting boards so special? Why will they last forever? The 28 major steps to create your board take 4 to 5 days to complete. The hundreds of intermediary steps in between offer you unparalleled performance and durability.
If you’ve found yourself struggling to live in the moment, locked up and unable to communicate because of how busy you...
What does live as you eulogize mean? It means you don’t wait until it’s too late to live the life you want or say the things you feel.
While the Fifth & Cherry brand was in its infancy, I was working on my MBA at the University of Texas, Dallas.
Since I was young I’ve always wanted to show the world the vibrant thoughts swirling around in my mind.
Father raised me with the following thought towards gifts. Every holiday, he would say that it’s the thought that counts. He was right.
The kitchen holds a magical intoxicating power. Its allure has sirened almost half-a-million to work the grueling hours necessary to earn the title of head chef or lead cook.
Have you ever wondered why the foods of your youth dominate so many of your memories as an adult?
The point of giving a gift is to celebrate the recipient and to show your appreciation for their presence in your life. The people in our lives aren’t the plasticky disposable items that seem to endlessly line our store shelves.
