VomFASS takes it on the road

It’s a fact.  In the summertime customers don’t always see shopping as the best use of their time; especially when the beautiful weather and exciting community events compete for their attention.  VomFASS franchisees are undaunted by this seasonal challenge and have entertaining and appealing strategies in place.  Rather than waiting for their customers to come to them…..they take their shops to the customers.  This old world custom of tempting customers with sights and tastes of the delights within has been brought back to fit the season and enchant all who stroll by.
