YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED
When we launched our business, our aim was to generate content that we actually enjoy reading... However, we were intent on avoiding the typical low-quality content designed solely for SEO or spamming people. Instead, we aspired to create something we genuinely appreciate: short, concise, and rich with inspiration. This newsletter is the manifestation of that goal, and we are grateful that so many of you now enjoy it. Your positive response is truly a blessing for us, and we extend our sincere thanks!
Here are the things we're currently loving:

Check Delli market to buy products from independent chefs and foodies.
📱 We are a big fan of this new POS for fast food called Fastfood OS. These guys are going to be big! Plus, they use one of our favorites, Sunmi.
