Derrick's Wikle idea...
There's some kids that live on my street. Alix who's 8, Josh, Mikey, Amie, Harriet, Will and Izi, who's the youngest at 2. According to them I make and sell the best hot dogs in the world. Who am I to argue? Anyway, they are my regular tasting panel for new products.
The Wikle idea came out of a conversation with Will who was having his birthday. He asked his mum Lisa to ask me if I had some of those special mini hot dogs and hot dog balls for his party. I gave Lisa my last two jars. She said that if she didn't have enough that she would buy some more, to which I said that she couldn't yet buy them in the UK. Then came my light bulb moment!
From that discussion we went back to the factory and decided on the range that we would launch in the UK. iMdA came up with the design and Wikle branding for the new range of mini hot dogs and hot dog balls soon to be launched.
So thanks to Will and his mum Lisa, as well as the panel of judges who live beside me, we have what I believe is a real alternative to canned hot dogs for kids. I'm hoping that Wikle things will turn into whopping things.
And I still have the best job in the world.
