Imagine yourself on a random sandbar, over 400 miles from your hometown, when you hear, "Hey! We know you!" coming from a nearby boat.
We were anchored on a small sandbar in Marathon last week and met some friendly faces from our small city of Sebastian who recognized the Sandbar Sunday logo on our boat. It's not the first time it's happened, yet it never gets old and we are always happy to meet new friends.
If we're lucky enough to have good weather on a weekend and cruise the Sebastian or Fort Pierce sandbars, we are starting to see Sandbar Sunday shirts, hats and koozies. We are getting waves and shouts from people we've met at festivals or who have seen our boat in the 4th of July and Christmas parades in town. Each time it happens, I am jolted by the realization that our little brand just might be catching on.
Sandbar Sunday isn't just about spending a day on the water. It's about the friends and family that meet up to spend the day together. It's about the people you meet on the sandbar - the comradery that naturally exists between people who share the same passion.
This has got me thinking about the grassroots nature of growing a brand. For Sandbar Sunday to be successful, it has to start at home. We love Sebastian and Indian River County and want to show our appreciation for the support we've received in our short time in business. Not only are we giving back to the community by sponsoring local events, we will now be offering a discount of 10% to all Sebastian locals (use code LOCAL) as well as free personal delivery to anyone with a Sebastian area address. This includes the following zip codes: 32958, 32948, 32957, and 32967.
As a veteran owned company, we also offer a permanent 10% discount to veterans as a small way to say thank you for your service (Use code VETERAN).
Jim and I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to our past and future customers. We appreciate you!
Please be sure to give us a wave on the sandbar!
