Want to take your brand to a much wider audience? You’ll want to pay attention to Zingerman’s Deli.

And no one knows the Zingerman’s story better than Micheline Maynard.

Micheline is the author of Satisfaction Guaranteed: How Zingerman’s Built A Corner Deli Into A Global Food Community.

(She’s also published columns in The Washington Post and New York Times).

To get the most out of this episode, I recommend you:

  1. Take a quick look at Zingerman’s Website and what they’re doing online. Notice how much they GIVE: events, content, stories about their people, etc. Is this work? Yes. Does it take a team? Yes. Investment? Yep. Is it worth it? Up to you.
  2. Listen to the podcast episode to get a look-under-the-hood of the psychology of WHY they do what they do.

And how they’ve grown successfully over FOUR DECADES (Zingerman’s celebrated their 40th birthday on March 15th, 2022).
