Sep. 23, 2010 (Business Wire) — Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCBB: TOOT) announced that unit sales for August 2010 were up 10%, versus August, 2009.
“We are experiencing positive sales trends in all of our sales channels. This is especially encouraging as we head into the ever important upcoming holiday season, where up to 60% of our annual sales will occur,” said Don Merrill, President & CEO.
The Company had previously reported sales increases for nine months in a row in July; and August would be the tenth consecutive month of sales increase.
“Corporate sales are coming back to life. Both components of our wholesale markets are showing solid sales growth. Our third Tootie Pie Gourmet Café in Alamo Heights should provide a nice boost to our Café segment, just in time for the upcoming holiday season. It is shaping up to be a good holiday season and year for Tootie Pie Company; and the only question, I think, is just how good it will be,” added Merrill.
