David Liesenfelt of Fresh Concepts and Kelly Mejia-Cruz of Denny's Win September 2019 Snack Cover Contest

SACRAMENTO, CA - We never set a 24-hour limit when it comes to The Snack’s Find the Apple Contest, but that didn’t stop participants from racing into our inbox the moment we announced it. This was an especially difficult round for me, so I was blown away by our readers finding the apple with lightning speed. Maybe I tipped them off with the flashlight tip, or maybe they are super geniuses. Either way, seeing those pearly whites was a triumph in itself.

David Liesenfelt, President of Fresh Concepts, represents the supply-side with his successful search for our ANUK logo. Merely minutes after sending out our newsletter, David sported a proud grin as he pointed at Greg Sagan’s lapel, earning him the $100 cash prize.

Kelly Mejia-Cruz, the new Buyer for Regional Programs at Denny’s, was the reigning buy-side champ this round. Shared with her by Senior Purchasing Manager, Gene Harris, Kelly’s jubilant selfie blessed our inboxes shortly after we announced the competition. I’d assume the $100 prize is an especially sweet way to begin her time with the company.

“That is great!” Kelly said when she learned of her triumph. “I love how your company keeps the audience engaged.”

Remember that contest rules require that submissions include a person pointing out the logo on the cover of The Snack Magazine, and the countdown only begins once we announce the contest in AndNowUKnow’s newsletter.

Congratulations to our September winners! And we’ll see the rest of you produce purveyors in our October round next month!
