Time to get things poppin’!

Let's Get Poppin'


I guess the best thing to do is introduce myself first. I’m Ron Gerlach, Director of Marketing for Gold Medal Products. It’s a job–and a company–that defines the word “fun!” We manufacture and distribute “fun food” and equipment all over the world. You know, the kind of stuff that you find at state fairs, theaters, sporting events? Yeah…you got it! Makes your mouth water even now, huh?

But this blog is more than promoting fun food. Because our business is in making ordinary people extraordinarily successful! So I’ll share with you tips, ideas, findings and useful info on how to grow a business, how to market a business…and generally, how to have fun in business!

Oh, and we’ll throw in some extras from time to time. Just to keep things poppin’!

So, let’s get started!
