products in stores, so the team went out
of its way to send her product and do
research on where she could find the
product closest to home.
"We're at that high level of customer service, even down to the individual consumer," McCoy says. "We want
them to have an amazing experience
with us, even if it costs us time or money. Whatever it takes, that's us."

Premium Products
Grandma Hoerner's produces more
than 80 products in its factory that meet
natural, organic or non-GMO status,
and it develops new products seasonally as well. The company invested
heavily in its shelf-stable pouches for
the Big Slice brand and upgraded all
manufacturing equipment and expanded its facility with more secure areas to
improve food safety.
Grandma Hoerner's employs several
food scientists to research and develop
new and unique cutting-edge, delicious
products. Besides its on-the-go fruit

snack pouches, Grandma Hoerner's
sells its Big Slice Kettle Cooked Apples
and fruits in shareable jars for home
cooking, such as a topping on waffles
or just a snack. It also has a huge sauce
collection, pie fillings, dessert toppings
and savory products such as salsas and
barbecue sauces.
"Our focus is getting the nation to
know how great this new, healthy fruit
snack is," McCoy explains. "If we do a
great job with people knowing about
that, they'll know our other products
are great too. They'll say, 'Wow, Grandma Hoerner's puts out the best healthy
foods and we'll trust them when we
want to buy delicious sauce, fruit butter
or pie filling. We've fallen in love with
their brand, mission and calling. We're
going to buy into their company and
trust them with all their product lines.'"

ny also wants to give back in a big way.
McCoy founded a nonprofit organization called Sparkle, which helps girls
and women in need, especially those
who were exploited in underground
human sex trafficking. Sparkle is near
and dear to McCoy's heart and a portion of every Big Slice pouch sale goes
to the Sparkle foundation, which then
distributes monetary gifts to charitable outreaches such as The Center for
Victims of Torture, Polaris Project and
Love 146, among others.
"I was adopted very young, but my
parents kept the sparkle in my eye and
spirit," McCoy recalls. "I didn't have to
go from home to home and experience
messy situations. In life, what we're
seeing with these girls is that their
sparkle is being destroyed. So, what
we want to do is put the sparkle back in
their eye, hearts and spirit. And you do
that by giving to charity organizations
and ministries to help them.

more than just the quality and taste of
