Gold Tone Products Succeeds with SCORE Counseling

     Gold Tone Products based in Pompano Beach is the largest manufacturer of reusable coffee filters and accessories in the USA. They have a great line of quality products that are both convenient and eco-friendly.  The management of the company contacted Broward SCORE because they needed fresh strategies for growth and expansion of their product line.  Since March, a counseling team from Broward SCORE has been conducting a series of customized workshops with Gold Tone’s top managers. 

     SCORE counselors David Harris, Ernie Cevallos, and Kenrick Pierre assisted the managers in creating new Vision and Mission statements, as well as building a comprehensive Business Plan for Growth.  In addition, a new marketing strategy is being formulated that is projected to double Gold Tone’s sales over the next 3 ½ years.

     The customized workshop series conducted for Gold Tone Products is part of a new initiative launched by Broward SCORE in late 2011.   It is a team counseling concept designed to energize the growth of existing small businesses.  Contact Broward SCORE to find out how we can help your business with a customized workshop series, and get on the success track like Gold Tone Products.

That effect multiplies as applicants Tweet, post to Facebook and otherwise communicate their frustrations with a company to their friends and families, who likewise develop unhappy associations with that brand.
