Western Marketing Mini-Grant Announced

We are excited to announce the recipient of our Western Marketing Mini-Grant Top It Frozen Dessert Bar in Auburn!

Corrie Bernatchez, owner of Top It Frozen Dessert Bar in Auburn, Maine, serving online orders for pick-up during the Coronavirus pandemic in Spring 2020.

About The Business

Top It Frozen Dessert Bar in downtown Auburn was founded in 2013 by Corrie Bernatchez. It offers six flavors of frozen yogurt with up to 30 toppings, as well as other frozen desserts. The business provides a family friendly atmosphere with many children inspired desserts and fun games. The business is currently offering new dessert products, online ordering, and curbside pick-up service.

Using the Marketing Mini-Grant

Top It Frozen Dessert Bar applied for the Marketing Mini-Grant to help them connect with new clients. The business is being impacted from COVID19 by the cancellation of the Balloon Festival and other community events in the Lewiston-Auburn area. The funds from the New Ventures Maine Marketing Mini-Grant will be used towards a radio advertising campaign this summer. The goal is to enhance established marketing plan strategies to attract new customers to their business and the destination of the Auburn River Walk.

We are excited to see Frozen Yogurt Dessert Bar have this opportunity to grow their own business while also attracting new customers to the surrounding business community.

Thank you to Norway Savings Bank for their support of New Ventures Maine and the Marketing Mini-grant Program!
