HOORAY for FedEx grantwinner Hooray Truffles!

Jun 25, 2018

Congratulations to Kim and Alanna Kingston and the team at Hooray Truffles - recognized as one of the top 10 small businesses in Canada and one of eight $5,000 Bronze prizewinners in the FedEx Small Business Grant contest. Announcing the news, Kim posted on her facebook page: "we are beyond happy and beyond grateful for the recognition, the validation, and the amazing opportunity to be honoured by FedEx for all that this little Gibsons Landing Vegan Chocolate Studio stands for and is. Being able to share in this excitement with my amazing daughter Alanna Kingston whose creativity and culinary expertise created the original Hooray Truffle is beyond anything I could dream. Without her these truffles simply would not exist (even the ducks at the duck pond would not eat my attempt at gluten free, vegan, soy free cooking back in the day!)"
Contestants submitted their business profiles, then collected online votes. Those who moved to the next level were required to submit a video about their business and their passion. Kim acknowledges "I have a huge amount of gratitude for Brittany Broderson [at CoastTV] and her amazing talent as a videographer whose professionalism and skill had so much to do with my being able to convey my passion to people that wanted to get to know Hooray Truffles."

Kim and Alanna plan to put the grant towards the purchase a chocolate enrober and new environmental friendly packaging.
