Fall 2017 Products

Smoky Mountain Cookie Dough

Smoky Mountain Gourmet Cookie Dough

Our exclusive 12-item Cookie Dough brochure continues its’ dominant role as our flagship program. Without a doubt, our “Smoky Mountain Gourmet Cookie Dough” line continues to be the top-producing program in our portfolio. From White Chocolate Macadamia to our brand new flavor, Strawberry Shortcake, people simply love the product! There is also greater customer satisfaction with edible products vs. hard goods, and this particular line has proven time & time again to produce much larger sales numbers than with catalogue sales. In tough economic times, people still buy food products, and our cookie dough is a prime example of consumers getting more value for their dollar.

Smoky Mountain Favorites

Smoky Mountain Favorites

With the fundraising industry moving further away from hard goods and more swiftly towards edible lines, our 4th year edition of Smoky Mountain Favorites is quickly solidifying itself as a crowd favorite! This exclusive 24-item designer line is a sweet tooth connoisseur’s delight, with gourmet chocolates from Ashdon Farms, hearty appetizers and delicious desserts from Homemade Gourmet, Cinnabon & Auntie Anne's, along with local favorites from “Virginia Diner,” the highest quality peanut line in the industry! This program saw a dramatic increase in bookings as well as boasted the largest increase in volume of any line for MEP in 2016-17, and therefore we feel it is destined for greatness within our program offerings. One thing for sure: Smoky Mountain Favorites will most certainly tempt the taste buds of your customers and put dollars in your group’s pockets!

Southern Traditions

One of the most elegant brochures ever offered by MEP, Southern Traditions is immersed in style and southern heritage with our exclusive candle line, Dixie Candle! These soy-based candles are truly top-of-the-line quality and competitively priced, while offering eight different scents at three different price points. Southern Traditions also blends in all of the major fundraising categories, with the kitchen accessory market, full page spreads for Kids, Mom & Dad, a 16-page food insert in the middle, along with our high-end 60 lb. heavyweight wrapping paper line.

Celebrate

Celebrate

Our exclusive new “Celebrate” line is all the rave in the Elementary market, with its’ eye-popping “Celebrate” cover art.

With over 150 items including Designer Wrap Ensembles, Gourmet Chocolates, M.E.P.

Gourmet Popcorn

Gourmet Popcorn

After much fanfare, our Smoky Mountain Gourmet Cookie Dough manufacturer has debuted a brand new line of Popcorn, appropriately named Smoky Mountain Gourmet Popcorn! And, as should be expected, the quality rivals that of our flagship cookie dough program! And, while Popcorn is not anticipated to revolutionize the fundraising industry, it certainly will provide needed change and complimentary service to schools in search of "something different!" We view Popcorn as a tag program in most cases, however, with the industry constantly evolving, we are fortunate to have such a high quality product line in our lineup. With six gourmet flavors to choose from, our Gourmet Popcorn will undoubtedly become a snackers delight and definite fan favorite in Fall 2017!

M.E.P. Online WebStore

M.E.P. Online WebStore

Mountain Empire is pleased to announce a new standard for our school fundraising platform. With national online sales numbers increasing every year and becoming more and more mainstream, MEP will now offer our Online Store (with nearly 1,000 items!) as a standard option for all of our sales. This program (while optional) is available as an add-on with all product lines, offering a hassle-free solution for out-of-town & online customers. The buyer simply places their order online and the product is delivered directly to their location, allowing friends and relatives a simple alternative to participate and help their school. We believe this program will initially incur modest incremental sales, however, will likely see annual increases consistent with national trends. Therefore, by adding this option to our programs now, we should be a step ahead of the curve for our schools!
