Biz Anniversaries: All in the Timing

B&M Baked Beans recently turned 150 years old, a fact I learned from a billboard facing Interstate 80 here in beautiful northern New Jersey. I spotted it while driving during the 4th of July weekend. Good timing! Just think of all those barbequers with grocery shopping on their minds. I don’t barbeque, but I’m glad to see that B&M adopted anniversary packaging and is offering a grocery gift-card contest to commemorate its business anniversary. The company’s About Us page is a bit light on detail except for logos of all the BM brands. Apparently B&M also gave tours of its Maine bean-processing factory to local reporters. Why not add a video to the website, B&M?
