Home Depot Pro-user Breakfast


A few weeks ago 4th Strand had the awesome opportunity to spend time with the friendly folks at the pro-desk at the Home Depot in Suwanee, GA. From time to time the Pro-desk team will host a breakfast for professional users and contractors with various expertise in building materials, flooring, power tools and much more.

They stacked the table with sausage biscuits; bacon, egg and cheese biscuits, chicken biscuits (my favorite… Why you ask? More meat of course!) orange juice, and coffee. Often they’ll have free t-shirts and free product samples. Whaaaaaat? Yes FREE product samples for simply showing up and stuffing your face!

This also opens up the floor for vendors like Glidden to come in and share good insight about their paint products. Psst! And also give away free samples. Did you get that? I’m whispering.
