REVIEW: Made in Michigan: HOLLA to Michigan Based Companies!!!

Great Lakes Showcase features Michigan based Companies

Last week, my son and were part of the local media who were invited to the Great Lakes Showcase at the Southfield Westin Hotel. This inaugural media event put on by Jason Brown from PublicCityPR and Boost1 Marketing showcased all Michigan-based companies and non-profits.

Anyone that has read this blog for any amount of time knows how I love to feature Michigan based companies so this was my kind of event.

My son and I visited the booths of a number of Michigan companies including a few that have sponsored giveaways on this blog including Just Baked, American Coney Island and Peteet's Famous Cheesecake.

American Coney Island was cooking up samples for everyone and my son loved his coney so much that we had to stop at American Coney Island the night that we went to the Detroit Auto Show.  And everyone loved the samples Peteet's was giving out of their famous cheesecake.  Peteet's owner Patrick Peteet let me in on the fact that we should all be looking for his Peteet's Cheesecake Ice Cream coming soon. YUMMY!

One booth that we had a blast visiting was Rock The Booth where we had a great time acting silly in their photo booth as you can see from the photos above.

Below is a list of all the companies that were at the Great Lakes Showcase.  While all of us love a bargain, it is always good to buy from companies where the dollars stay in our local economy.
