Save Mart's Betty Tomao and Famous Software's Ernesto Perez Win Bako Sweet’s® Quiz Quix

SACRAMENTO, CA - You may be crying because you didn’t win, or maybe it’s because of Bako Sweet’s® abundance of sweet onions, in which case, it’s a good cry. With the company’s most recent Quiz Quix, we all got a peek into the world of sweet onions, but only two proved they had the right stuff when it came to onion knowledge. These lucky winners took home a cool hundo as their prize, but isn’t the best prize just knowing that you did a good job? Just kidding, cold hard cash is the best prize, and these two winners have plans for how they’ll be spending their well-earned reward.

Betty Tomao, Fresh Buyer Produce Department, Supply Chain, The Save Mart Companies“I just can’t believe I really won, I just love participating and testing my industry knowledge in the Quiz Quix! My winnings will be put to great use,” said buy-side winner, Betty Tomao, Fresh Buyer Produce Department, Supply Chain for Save Mart. “I am on vacation next week; we are flying back to Alabama to see my five-month-old granddaughter... Looks like I get to spoil her a little bit more.”

Betty sure showed off her onion smarts, and it sounds like her granddaughter is about to reap the benefits! Congratulations, Betty!

Our supply-side winner, Ernesto Perez, Custom Development for Famous Software, has decided to take a charitable approach, with a gesture of appreciation for his sales team. Well done, Ernesto!

Ernesto Perez, Custom Development, Famous Software“Prize money will be used to purchase lunch for the Famous Sales team who gave me inspiration to complete the quiz. Without them I’d be paying for lunch out of pocket,” Ernesto said.
