An interview with Chuck Brandano, V P / C O O / M a s t e r Baker, MultiGrains Bakery. RDN: Tell our read- ers about your com- pany, MultiGrains Bakery. What's your main line of busi- ness? CB: Joseph Faro Sr., started MultiGrains Bakery in 1997. From the beginning, Mr. Faro's team worked with a sim- ple business philosophy that we all live by: "When you combine Old World tradition, great taste and great value, "It costs more to gain a new customer then keep an old one." How many times have we all heard that saying? It's certainly true, but it's only half the story. Customer loyalty is about more than reducing customer acquisition costs, it's about increasing value and revenue, as well. But cre- ating consumer loyalty has been a big challenge – especially in the restaurant industry – until now. Mercury, one of the fastest-growing payment pro- cessing companies in North America, recently launched MercuryLoyalty™ – the industry's first Premium Blend, Inc., is a 23-year-old company found- ed by brothers Gino and Henry Santos. The Santos brothers built their company on the premise that every- one should have the same opportunity for success. They created a line of wine-based liquor substitutes under the brand name Premium Blend ® that allows restaurants and bars with only a beer and wine license the same ability to sell and serve cocktails as their larger liquor-licensed competitors. It includes products like the imported Mexican agave wine, El Guitarron™, which allows establishments the ability to serve Tequila-type drinks such as Margaritas with only a beer and wine license.
