The PHX Sampler was created April 20th in an effort to introduce customers to local food and craft vendors they may not yet know by curating ‘sampler’ deliveries. Due to the changes being faced in the current marketplace, they want to ensure shoppers still have access to new and innovative local small businesses.
Some of their vendor partners can be found at valley farmers markets, select grocery stores, restaurants, via delivery or shipping. Included partners are featured on the website thephxsampler.com, with their website or other contact information. That way, when a shopper finds their new favorite items via a sampler, they are then able to purchase additional items directly from that creator!
Vendor selection is growing weekly to continue to introduce repeat shoppers to new businesses. Deliveries are completed no contact style on Sundays for those orders placed by Noon on the Thursday prior.
Alexhandra Hotko is a graduate of ASU’s Design Management program and has over 10 years of corporate retail and wholesale experience, primarily in the footwear industry.
After that time in the footwear industry, and having not set aspirational goals for several years, she decided it was time to start her own business in 2016.
Hotko Bread Co focuses on Bohemian baked goods from Alexhandra’s family recipes. Her breads and pastries can be found at farmers markets, special events, but lately primarily baked to order and dropped at the customer’s door.
As the market changed due to the health crisis, she felt it was time to accelerate her plan to create a custom assorted sampler style project in the effort to assist fellow vendors and customers in finding each other.
