Smoky Mountain Favorites
With the fundraising industry moving further away from hard goods and more swiftly towards edible lines, our 5th year edition of Smoky Mountain Favorites is quickly solidifying itself as a crowd favorite! This exclusive 25-item designer line is a sweet tooth connoisseur’s delight, with gourmet chocolates from Ashdon Farms, hearty appetizers and delicious desserts from Homemade Gourmet, 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 2017-18, 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!
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 eight gourmet flavors to choose from, our Gourmet Popcorn will undoubtedly become a snackers delight and definite fan favorite in Fall 2019!
Our exclusive new “Celebrate” line is all the rave in the Elementary market, with its’ eye-popping “Celebrate” cover art. And, while this top-booking brochure is attracting customers with the cover alone, the pages inside are where the true value will appear. With two-thirds of the brochure priced at $12.00 or less, this catalogue is positioned for an outstanding Fall in the current market. With over 150 items including Designer Wrap Ensembles, Gourmet Chocolates, M.E.P. Exclusive Imports, Kitchen Gadgets & Accessories, Time Magazines and much more, “Celebrate” is expected to replicate it’s namesake for savvy schools that prepare their Celebration before we’re sold out! This will most definitely be one of our top selling lines of 2018!
Home for the Holidays/Let It Snow
Same great brochure with your choice of two covers. One of the most elegant brochures ever offered by MEP, Home for the Holidays/Let It Snow 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 six different scents at three different price points. Home for the Holidays/Let It Snow 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. This attractive all-inclusive program is not only unique to the market, but is receiving more attention than any new program in years! Comprised of over 150 items, Home for the Holidays/Let It Snow still allows for the option of combining with Cookie Dough or one of MEP's food programs for an even more compete product mix. And although new to the industry, we believe Home for the Holidays/Let It Snow is designed to live up to it's namesake, and we look forward to fulfilling that unique demand in the marketplace.

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!
