I just wanted to thank you for all the information you provided in your seminar. For years my sister and I had been
trying to package my mothers wine jelly to sell at county and state fairs and could never find the information we needed to do this.
Your seminar truly made this entire process for my sister and I very easy and affordable. We'd love to attend your consumer show once we have the jelly ready for retail sales.
Thank you so much for everything!
I wanted to send you a note with much appreciation and thanks for all your help. After your seminar I finally understood what steps I needed to follow to get my BBQ sauce in a bottle and be FDA compliant as you said. Your seminar made it easy to understand, and now with the time line of steps you provided along with all the industry contacts we have been able to get our BBQ sauce ready to sell, a bottle is on its way to you!
With much thanks!

In 2003 my wife & I began manufacturing and selling our own line of hot
sauces. After having seen you and your Jazz Sauces on the Food Network, we
decided to order your book. We followed the simple steps outlined in your
"How To Start Your Own Food Business" textbook to get us started. We are
currently selling our sauces in several stores and have many deals in the
works. We are really enjoying this business and meeting the many wonderful
people in this industry.
Thank you for providing us with the shortcuts to get started, your book is
informative, entertaining and inspiring.

Dear Mary Carter,
First, I want to thank you for compiling the information (that I have been
desperately trying to find) into your "How to Start Your Own Food Business".
It's really more like a straightforward "manual" than a book. I was hesitant
to spend the $, fearing I would be disappointed by the lack of info. Instead
I have been pleasantly surprised. For years my friends have been telling me
that I should market my desserts and fudge. I always thought it would be a
great move, but I had no idea how to go about it. Thank you for giving me a
way to at least start the process.

I have been spinning my wheels trying to get my husband's dry rub on the
market for about six months. I was lucky enough to see your book on TV late
one night when I could not sleep. I ordered it and WOW. After I read the
first few pages I found out I was going about marketing the rub the wrong
way. I now know what to do and what not to do. Mary, it really blew me away
when at the end of the book you give the phone number to call you. I really
enjoyed talking to you. Thank you so much.
My name is John Schlaiss.You don't know me but I
just wanted to say Thank You for taking the time to write
this book. I have learned more in the last 2 hours than I have in
the last 2 years. I knew many of the things that you are saying but
I didn't know how to put it all together.
Thanks again, I'll keep in touch,
Like you I was out there floundering around trying to find someone to make
my product and not having much success. As a matter of fact, my
brother-in-law is a Mayor in Ohio. There is a food manufacturer in his town
and the President of the company is his next door neighbor. To date he is
still trying to get me in to see them. To make a long story short, my wife
and I were watching the Food Channel and saw your ad. The book arrived last
week and this Tuesday I have an appointment to see a co-producer about
making my product. This is a company I had called on some time ago but
couldn't get in. All I did was use the new lingo I learned from your book
and BAM, I was in.
