Kolcraft was abuzz with excitement to welcome 4 Kolcraft Mom ambassadors to our corporate office in Chicago. We had talked with these moms via blog, social media and on the phone, but never met in person. Their time in Chicago was a time for us to get to know them & them to get to know us.
We started the Kolcraft Mom Fest with spa treatments at the Red Door Spa. We know moms don’t get much time to themselves, so we wanted to pamper them after their travel to the Windy City. That night we dined Chicago style at the locals’ favorite pizza spots – Lou Malnati’s. Then if was off to see some fireworks on Navy Pier and walk the Mag Mile before drifting to dreamland at The Drake.
The next day came bright and early with breakfast at Kolcraft corporate offices. Here the moms got to meet 3 generations of Koltuns – Sandy Koltun, CEO (son of the founder of Kolcraft), Tom Koltun, President, and Anita Koltun, social media intern. They also toured the offices and saw our test labs. The day was spent showing them products in various stages of concept and development. It was exciting to see their reaction to “first looks” at products and to get their feedback. We ended the day with a limo tour of Chicago sites.
Friday was the end of our time with our Kolcraft Moms. We met them for breakfast and were serenaded by A Nation of Mom’s son who played the violin like a little Itzhak Perlman. It was hard to say goodbye, but we are grateful for the time we had with them.
