Brand Spotlight: Batch and Bodega Food Gifts

Want to level up traditional company-branded gifts this year? How about pairing swag with delicious, unique, and exclusive food items from artisan makers? Custom gift boxes from Batch and Bodega offers companies a way to create unforgettable gifting experiences that recipients will love. 

Behind the Batch and Bodega Brand 

Launched in 2020, the Batch & Bodega product line bundles exclusive, award-winning snacks from small, artisan shops all across the United States, with some of the top trending promotional swag items on the market. The result is a unique giftable kit that the brand nicknamed “batches.” 

The Batch & Bodega product line gives businesses an opportunity to support fellow small businesses in the U.S. when investing in corporate gifts. Each small-batch maker has a unique story that matches their one-of-a-kind food options. Here’s a quick glimpse of just a few:

Poppy Popcorn

Poppy-PopcornA Mom founded this local, homegrown and fresh popcorn brand in 2014 for one simple reason: she wanted to be there for her kids’ school programs, baseball games, and performances. Ginger Franks opened up shop with one popcorn machine and a strong work ethic. She made it her goal to keep her business fresh and close to home, still hand-crafted with love in Asheville, North Carolina. 

Nene’s Treats

Nenes-TreatsThese scrumptious, preservative-free crumb cakes were developed by an 85-year-old grandmother in Charleston, South Caroline. Marie Felice, better known as Nene, created her secrete recipe over 50 years ago, and it has withstood the test of time. Now Nene’s grandchildren continue her legacy by rolling up their sleeves in the kitchen and churning out delectable treats with laugher and love. 

Byrd Cookie Company

Byrd-Cookie-CompanyTalk about history. This baking company was originally founded in Savannah, Georgia in 1924. Benjamin Tillman “Pop” Byrd, Sr. would deliver fresh cookies to stores around town in his Model T Ford. They were sold out of large glass jars at 2 for a penny! The business grew, and Pop converted a tin-sided barn into a larger bakery which became “Byrd’s Famous Cookies.” Pop’s family carried on the legacy, and the cookie company remains headquartered in Savannah, an award-winning, family-owned business that provides fresh-packed products to customers worldwide. 

A Causeworthy Focus

Those are just a few of the dozens of unique makers to choose from. Batch and Bodega partners with a diverse group of brands who all prioritize generosity, sustainability, and community involvement. Each one contributes to the world and community in some way, whether it’s through using sustainable resources, giving back, or standing up for a cause-worthy purpose.
