SAINT JOHNSBURY, Vt., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Custom images on toast has become Vermont Novelty Toaster Corporation's (VNTC) bread and butter. Retail sales of their novelty toasters on their website have increased exponentially, spanning the globe. Major retailers have contacted the company and other corporations have sought their assistance as "toast artists" for various projects.
"Media and other corporate inquiries haven't stopped since we introduced the Selfie Toaster just over a year ago," Galen Dively, President of VNTC, says smiling. "We create faces and other custom art on toast. That's what we do. People like seeing their face. It's human nature. People also really like toast. We created a unique product that butters up to these basic facts. David Letterman used one of our toasters on his show. Bob Weir owns a Jesus toaster."
One recent corporate project was for NBC Sports. "We were just in Stamford, Connecticut at the NBC Sports studio making toast for their 'Wake Up for Football' Premier League coverage." Mr. Dively adds, "It was a blast to be there watching the professionals work their camera magic. They gave us inspiration and some tips for when we make our own videos. I guess I even helped when it came to budgeting some over-time production. The budget director liked the fact I was a Redskins fan. Go figure."
Another ongoing project has VNTC toast artists creating five hundred individual Selfie Toasters being given to speakers at a large convention in Las Vegas this fall. "The speakers are a veritable who's who of the technology and corporate world. We are very excited to get our products in front of them." Mr. Dively gets serious, "But we are working with caricatures, not photographs, it's actually harder." Challenges do not deter this company and their customers love it.
"Two toasters so far, and the results are impressive and constantly amusing. Great execution and delivery, and helpful customer reach out to clarify the order. All in all, a lovely consumer experience and a unique product. All good from my end." - Andrew in New York
"Had a great time surprising my husband with the funny picture of HIM on our breakfast toast lol" - Sandra in Wisconsin
"I bought this as a birthday present for my boss. He is known for his humor and being a bit self absorbed. He loved it! He said it was even better than the present his kids got him!! :D" - Kristi in California
With their corporate projects and the holiday season just around the corner, VNTC is looking forward to another record setting quarter of sales. "Hiring more artists and customer service representatives is our next priority," Mr. Dively concludes, "and getting more Jesus Toasters in the warehouse."
