Innovative Idea: Give Tours

I sign up for a lot of newsletters because I like to know what’s going on, what people I used to work with are up to, and it helps spark the Idea Mill.

I worked with Jerry Shereshewsky back in ’97 at Yoyodyne and (among other interesting andecdotes) I remember then he mentioned a desire to form a .com around grandparents – and he’s done just that.

Their most recent newsletter feature this week is on 10 Cool Factory Tours you can take your grandkids to see. The call to action is ” Show your grandkids where delicious candy and some of their other favorite things are made.”
