At Extraordinary Ventures, we love partnering with other businesses in our community. One of our Chapel Hill community partners includes Chapel Hill Whole Foods. Last Wednesday, we hosted the Whole Foods Whole Body Team to tour our facility and discuss our EV Gifts product line. Currently, our candles are in 19 Whole Foods stores in the Southeast including our local Chapel Hill store.

The first part of the tour included a short breakfast meeting in our board room where we showed an informational video about Extraordinary Ventures and offered the opportunity for the Whole Foods team to ask questions. The team was then showed each of the businesses in our building including what a “typical day” looks like all while meeting some of our employees along the way. “It is great to have local businesses in our community getting the chance to see what we do at EV and meeting our fantastic team of employees” said Van Hatchell, Managing Director of Extraordinary Ventures.

The tour ended with EV Gifts where the team was able to see how our candles are made, and given the opportunity to sample all of the different scents that we currently offer. We had the chance to show them our new soap line, and get the team’s opinions on carrying soaps in their Whole Foods store. We were able to discuss with the Whole Foods team their plans for merchandising our candles, Holiday 2014 and getting their feedback on the scents that they currently carry in their store.

We love our Whole Foods partners and can’t thank them enough for their continued support. The next time that you are in the Chapel Hill Whole Foods store or any store in the Southeast make sure that you check out the EV Candles in the Whole Body Department.
