July 26, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Woburn, MA, Ė GrandmasChickenSoup.com, the latest gift idea to hit the web, has opened in Woburn, Massachusetts. As a very creative new, delicious alternative to the same old flowers, steaks, Florida Grapefruit, candy, books, etc., sending a gift package of delicious homemade chicken soup has really caught the fancy and imagination of individuals and businesses who want to send a truly unique gift that shows appreciation, love or just plain caring - - - and is always guaranteed to produce a great big smile.

In addition to receiving a ½ gallon (4-6 servings) of fresh traditional homemade chicken soup with noodles, or a combination of noodles and matzo balls, in a heavily insulated state of the art container, the gift package also contains a jumbo ceramic soup mug, matching jumbo spoon and other gourmet and gift items Ė all sent next day or 2nd day.

Business founders, sister and brother, Betsy Maselek and David Poritzky, initially felt their market would primarily be families sending something special to kids in college, sick friends, aged parents, etc. What they didnít anticipate was that it would also appeal to the corporate world - desperately looking for new ways to thank clients for their business or ways to celebrate a successful event such as a mortgage closing, sale or purchase of a new house, vacation booking, etc.

The beginnings of GrandmasChickenSoup.com started in early 2003. A former employee of Davidís came into his restaurant, Davidís World Famous Eateries and Catering, early one morning, not feeling well. She took a supply of Davidís chicken soup into work with her. She obviously hadnít heard of penicillin. That got David thinking … Several weeks later David and his sister Betsy, sitting around grandmas table, eating chicken soup, heard that their cousin Peter in California had the flu. David and Betsy got to thinking… . . ďWhy donít we freeze it, put it in an insulated box and send it.Ē Three days later, Peter called and announced he was ready to run the Boston Marathon.

With their entrepreneurial curiosity whetted, they went on the internet looking for mail order chicken soup. Would you believe there was none! And thatís how it all started. Ordering is as simple as going to GrandmasChickenSoup.com, selecting Kosher or Non-Kosher, the appropriate gift package and personalized greeting, choice of noodles or the noodle/matzo ball combo, entering a ďsend toĒ address, and putting in your payment information. The technologically challenged can order by calling Grandma directly.
