A couple of months after Tony and I bought Folbot in September 2007, the Post & Courier — the South’s oldest newspaper — ran a large article on Folbot. It was the cover story of the business section, with a two page spread and lots of nice photos.
Well, a wonderful couple just dropped by the Folbot showroom to buy a Citibot. It turns out they had been lusting after a Folbot ever since the article appeared. What perfect Citibot owners. They split their time between living on their RV and their sailboat, and wanted a kayak they could easily store, setup and use for fishing. They couldn’t have been more excited.
It just shows that publicity is a good thing… and if you have a good product, people will remember it and seek you out. We’re flattered and they were thrilled.
What a nice way to start the week.
