give your friends & family something to SMILE about
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve been on the prowl for a fun, cause-based gesture of our love and affection—contrary to trademark holiday norms like flowers and truffles. We got exactly what we were looking for with the discovery of SMILE Biscotti!
We had an opportunity to meet the young Phoenix-based entrepreneur behind the brand, and it was love at first bite! Matt Resnik founded SMILE Biscotti to raise autism awareness and to start saving money so that one day he can finance a more independent lifestyle.
Matt’s homemade biscotti comes in three different flavors—Ceylon vanilla, citrus almond and double chocolate chip. Of course—it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite—so if you’re like us, you can also purchase a variety pack that has a nibble of each flavor.
What makes SMILE Biscotti so special, aside from the fact that it’s so yummy, is that Matt personally oversees every aspect of his business. From grocery shopping, reviewing orders, packaging, quality control and baking—he even offers custom biscotti orders and uniquely designed packaging for gifts, holidays and special events.
Because we’re so enamored with the concept—delivering a great product that supports a wholehearted cause—we’re hoping to help Matt achieve his goal of 100K orders in 2014. He’s already 18K orders strong and Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to take Matt to the next level!
Matt’s business is heavily involved with SARRC, the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center. Together, they’re raising community and legislative awareness about adults and children living with autism.
Spreading the word about a company like SMILE makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
