Fargo Thanks the Just Born Candy Company

It’s been quite a week at the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce. We kicked it off with the opportunity to meet with the unfortunate candy reps turned media darlings who landed in our fair city because of unmet sales goals. The Just Born candy people were a joy to have in Fargo and even opened my eyes a bit wider to this beautiful winter playground I call my home. We are forever indebted to them for using their national media draw to spread the word about our cultural Mecca on the prairie.

“We were fully charmed by the kindness and warmth of Fargo’s citizens, and considered it an honor that you opened up your city to us.”
Josh Halpern, Director of Domestic Customer Development
Just Born Inc.

It’s not every day that, as someone whose job it is to promote our region, I get to help provide a transformative experience to a group of visitors, who then have the ear of every major newspaper in the country to shout their praises of Fargo.

In a recent twist, the Just Born team has decided that it would like to give back to Fargo by doing volunteer work here for a couple of days (when the weather warms up). How very Fargo of them! You can bet I’ll be by their sides, serving the Fargo community that has given me so much.

Thank you Just Born!Just Born Candy

    I was one of the Just Born reps who made the trip to Fargo. I was the only one who had been to Fargo and I was the one who suggested it when we were looking for a “cold weather” city. Please believe me when I say, going to Fargo was not a punishment, but an experience that none of us will ever forget. We not only had the time of our lives in your fabulous downtown, but meeting the warm and friendly people of Fargo, who welcomed us with open arms, made our time in Fargo just Fantastic. Our meeting was a success because of Fargo. The experience drew us closer together as a team and gave us a memory we will never soon forget. In the years to come, we will forever be known as the “Fargo 24”. Even if mor people join our sales team in the future, the Fargo 24 will always remain a special group because of our meeting and wonderful experience in Fargo.

    You have a wonderful city that your residents should be very proud of. We are all looking forward to coming back, in the summer, to do the volunteer project and hopefully some fishing.

    Thank you again Fargo,

    Jim Costas

    • The Fargo 24 🙂 I like that! I do believe you found Fargo to be fantastic – I feel the same way! I came across your great big ad in The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead thanking the city for its hospitality and I have to say: You Peeps have class! Please look us up at the Chamber when you return in fairer weather. We would love to serve by your side. Thank you Just Born!
