Bucks County Taste Explores Superior Woodcraft's Locavore Event


6th Annual Locavore: 

New faces &New Products

Last night I had the pleasure of eating, drinking and tasting some of the best locally produced food in Bucks County. For those of you who saw my Instagram posts you may have been thinking, “She’s where? Superior Woodcraft in Doylestown? What does that have to do with local food?”
Once a year, for the past six years, Superior Woodcraft has opened its doors—and its cavernous workshop where they make fine cabinetry—and hosted the Locavore event. They partner with the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce to create a unique networking event that shines the spotlight on local food producers and retailers.

Review - Third Kitchen Renovation & Still Smiling

Once you become a Superior Woodcraft client you become a member of the Superior Woodcraft family.  One member of the Superior Woodcraft family just posted a Superior Woodcraft review on Houzz.  Besty talks about her latest Superior Woodcraft experience or should we say, family reunion?  

We just finished our third kitchen renovation with Superior Woodcraft and, once again, are absolutely thrilled with the results. We were on a tight timeline, and Michelle and Amanda were able to quickly help me choose our cabinets and counter tops so that we could have everything ready to meet our deadline. I'm still absolutely amazed that we were able to get such a beautifully detailed kitchen done in such a short time frame. Michelle had never worked with our contractor before, but they worked seamlessly together. We decided, at the last minute, to renovate the master bath as well and Superior was
able to design and build a custom double vanity, mirror and storage cabinet in record time. The installers that Superior use are the best, every little detail is done to perfection. Can't thank them enough for making what could have been a very stressful couple of months completely manageable.  Read review on Houzz

Betsy, we are glad that everything worked out well for you.  The entire Superior Woodcraft team is thrilled that Superior Woodcraft brought beauty, utility and harmony into your family's home and lives.

Since its inception in 2010, the Bucks Locavore ~ Buy Local Event has introduced thousands of people to the buy local movement.  The 6th annual event, to be held at the end of the February will be no exception.   Bucks Locavore ~ Buy Local offers guests a unique combination of business networking while sampling the remarkable goods from local independent food and beverage producers. The buy local movement is essential to the success of a local, sustainable supply chain which results in a stronger local economy supporting schools, local infrastructures and public assets. What makes The Bucks Locavore~ Buy Local event even more invaluable is that it isn’t just a networking event for the attendees, it provides a rare opportunity for the producers to connect with each other and form new alliances.

Superior Woodcraft, award winning cabinet maker in Doylestown, Pa, is the annual host of the event.  This year Superior Woodcraft is teaming up with the Central BucksChamber of Commerce and is expecting attendance of over five hundred people and over thirty food and beverage vendors.   

(L-R: Laurie, Trevor, Jennifer, Patrick)
Patrick M. Kennedy, Vice President of Superior Woodcraft created the idea of this event to keep the buy local movement strong and in the forefront of the public eye.   Patrick’s forward thinking style is infectious as he comments, “Many people think of the Bucks Locavore~Buy Local event as a business networking event.  This event is much more – it is an experience.  It’s a business incubator.  Many business relationships and new products have been created from the local companies that participate in this experience.  They start collaborating and next thing you know business relationships are formed and new products are developed.  Real business and economic growth is being created. A perfect example is the business relationship that developed between Laurie’s Chocolates, Doylestown Brewing, Homestead Coffee and Rose Bank Winery.”

Patrick is referring to is the new relationships Laurie Douglass from Laurie’s Chocolates has cultivated as a result of participating in Bucks Locavore~Buy Local. The award winning chocolatier connected with Joe Modesetine, owner of Doylestown Brewery. The result is Tavern Toffee, a delectable version of Laurie’s butter crunch toffee infused with the brewery’s smooth R5 Lager.  This mouthwatering combination of lager, sourdough pretzels, salted almonds and pretzels will be featured at Doylestown Brewery slated to open soon in the PA Marketplace on South Main Street in Doylestown.  Jennifer Estes, Brand Manager from Doylestown Brewery is looking forward to returning as a participant.  Jennifer commented, “We are proud to participate in Bucks Locavore because Doylestown Brewing Company believes creating a sense of community among business owners is vital to keeping Doylestown a thriving retail/hospitality destination. We will support that effort in every way we can and this is a perfect event to connect and share ideas with our community business leaders.".   

The Tavern Toffee isn’t the only marvelous Laurie’s Chocolate product resulting from Bucks Locavore~ Buy Local.    Laurie’s offers truffles crafted with robust coffee from Homestead Coffee Roasters, pure chocolate, and rich cream.   Trevor Lewis from Homestead Coffee

Roasters based in Upper Black Eddy has found the Bucks Locavore Event to be a must in his
marketing efforts.  Trevor says, “Its great strengthening business relationships in Doylestown, meeting other business owners. This event attracts so many people the face to face is invaluable”.

Laurie is looking forward to returning to the event in February she mentions: “The fact I don’t have a retail location its great visibility”.  Laurie’s Chocolate’s is sold in many local retailers visit her website for details.  This year at Bucks Locavore~ Buy Local, Laurie will be unveiling her latest creation, Orange Chocolate Port Truffle.  Creamy chocolate immersed with Orange Port Wine from Newtown’s Rose Bank Winery.  Yet another successful partnership resulting from this event.   If you want to be the first to try Laurie’s latest masterpiece you will have to attend BucksLocavore~ Buy Local.

Create A Big Impact By Going Small

U.S. consumers have many options for where they will buy retail goods. U.S. consumers can purchase goods from small local businesses, regional chains or giant international companies.  Before you make your next purchase stop and think for a minute.  Does it make any difference where you make your purchases?  Do you want your dollars to create the biggest benefit for you and your family?  Read this information before you spend your hard earned money.  It could change your purchasing habits and improve your community.

When consumers patronize local small businesses, they are essentially giving money back to their local community. A thriving local business will generate high levels of revenue, which means that the business will pay higher taxes, including local taxes. This money is then used for local police and fire departments, maintaining roads, public parks, as well as schools and many other services we often take for granted. 

Did you ever think small business has a large impact on innovation and the sciences? Innovation is very possible in small businesses. In these smaller enterprises, employees usually work in close proximity to consumers and learn firsthand about their needs. Providing solutions to their clients’ needs is how small companies prosper.  Small businesses are big innovators.

The U.S. Small Business Technology Council reports that smaller firms employ 32 percent of scientists and engineers, whereas larger firms employ 27 percent. These professionals in small businesses produce more patents than their counterparts in large companies and universities. So, small companies are responsible for more innovation and creating more new products compared to their large counterparts.  Surprising to some - big business and big government aren’t creating new ideas and new product – it’s the small business that are driving product innovation.

Still not convinced that your spending habits can create a big impact then read more.

Here are some interesting facts about small businesses from
  •  Small businesses accounted for 65% of all net new jobs over the past 17 years.
  • Small businesses employ 77 million Americans.
  • 89% of consumers agree that independent businesses contribute positively to local economies.
  • Residential neighborhoods served by a successful independent business district gained, on average, 50% more in home values than their citywide markets.
  • Independent retailers return more than three times as much money per dollar of sales than chain competitors.
  • Independent restaurants return more than two times as much money per dollar of sales than national restaurant chains.
  • If independent businesses regained their 1990 market shares, it would create 200,000 new small businesses, generate nearly $300 billion in revenues and employ more than 1.6 million American workers.
  • If just half the U.S. employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.
  • For every square foot a local firm occupies, the local economy gains $179 vs. $105 for a chain store.
So before you make your next purchase, think about going local. It will help your local economy, you community and keep America vibrant.
