August / September Marketing Calendar

Aug 20, 2018 Share on Facebook Share!

In an effort to help all of our members, both retailers, wholesalers, and suppliers grow their businesses, you will find a marketing corner segment in each of the NICRA bulletins going forward and in the news tab here.

This space will include a marketing calendar for the current month and the following month in order to assist you in the planning of events and promotions for the following month.  We have selected dates that have a relevance for food service, particularly for frozen desserts but have also included some other fun dates and events that you may want to promote.  This calendar is certainly not exhaustive but a great for jump-starting your marketing efforts.

We would also love you to share your marketing triumphs and successes.  If you have had a promotion or an event that really worked well for your business and engaged your customers, please share it with us.  Send an overview to and we will contact you for details.
