The Basketry Lands A ‘Sweet’ New Partnership

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JULY 8TH, 2019

With the sudden news of Sucre closing, The Basketry rushed to find New Orleans chocolate vendors to fill the void of the ‘missing chocolate.’ We prevailed thanks to our local friends. Fortunately, a recent fresh shipment of Sucre chocolate bars and coffee was available to fill the next few weeks of online orders.

Lolli’s chocolates of Harahan and Raw Sugar Toffee of Raceland swooped in to save the day, and what a SWEET day it was!  With Lolli’s chocolate covered pretzels, fleur de lis oreos, fresh pralines and chocolate crawfish, The Basketry was excited to recreate brand new gifts and gift baskets for customers!  Raw Sugar Toffee became a mainstay in most of the new gifts that were created, and took the place of the Sucre candy bars.  

“Recreating gifts for the website is one of the hardest and most expensive jobs that we have.  You have to design and photograph each gift, which takes several days, not to mention adding them to our online store.  It’s about a $5,000 cost,” says Kristi Brocato, owner. 

 The Basketry team is looking forward to embarking on a massive journey of web design and new gift creations to treat their beloved customers. The tragedy of losing Sucre created an opportunity of unexpected growth for The Basketry. 

“We love our new chocolate vendors and know our customers will too,” said Brocato. 

When a new door opens, there’s always something ‘sweet’ to follow!
