)-- In the world of online shopping, it seems like there are infinite sources to buy everything in almost any country. Cat sweaters, yachts, cowboy boots, original artwork, a new sports car, a snowboard, cuff links, handmade jewelry, and the next blockbuster hit. It's all there for you at your fingertips. However, what about food? Sure, you can buy your aunt and uncle a nice gift basket, but what about supporting small businesses that make small batch foods? There's a new site on the market that may just be a new source for foodie consumers. PantryHound.com is a brand new site available to shoppers who desire to find specialty food items throughout the United States. What is so unique about it? Technically speaking, it brings the farmers market right to your computer. No more waiting around to buy that amazing sauce you found or that incredible seasoning you just have to have. PantryHound is a new online source where food lovers can just log on, shop and order something delicious.
Started in October, PantryHound has started to sprout as both a venue for selling delicious foods and as a promotional platform for small businesses. There are plenty of large food companies out there. But, what about the smaller guys? The smaller businesses are those that work in commercial kitchens but who don't consider themselves a huge brand or factory producer. Most items are handcrafted using top-notch ingredients consistently to bring truly special products to the public and their stomachs. More organic, natural, zero preservative options. It's hard to get your name out there as a new business and PantryHound is a new online source that has decided to step in and help small food businesses shine. How? Through the power of social media or "word of mouse." Using sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, PantryHound works to get the word out about these unique artisans to a nationwide audience. It's people helping people. Good deal.
As of now, there are quite a number of larger sites that allow the sale of handmade goods, but not many that focus solely on the promotion and sales of specialty foods that are made by these smaller businesses. It's a relatively newer niche market. According to PantryHound's administration, there are some ground rules in selling in their marketplace. You do have to be a legal small business and food producer for consumer safety reasons. However, those that do become a part of PantryHound are joining a company with big goals. "The possibilities are endless for what PantryHound can become for foodies," says owner Beth Kravitz. "We anticipate the growth of our website to become the next great thing in the online shopping arena." For foodies, PantryHound provides the opportunity to introduce them to new artisans from other states that they might not run into in their own area. Thus harnessing the power of the internet to new heights and new plates.
