MUNCHIE MUG CANADA
Munchie Mug Canada began in late 2016, when my oldest daughter, Eva, was 1 year old. It seemed like no snack container stood a chance at containing her messes - even when they claimed to be spill-proof. Enter the Munchie Mug! Designed and invented by parents, for parents like you in mind, we finally had a snack container that actually kept all her crumbs inside with it's ingenious design. We knew we had to share this product across the country, so that other parents could benefit from mess-free snacking, and, thanks to your help and support, that's exactly what we did! You can now find our Mugs in major retailers across the country and we are continuing to grow and expand across the globe.
Munchie Mug is a mom-run, small, family business, based out of California and Vancouver. When you send us emails and interact with us on Instagram, you're messaging one of us directly and supporting families in YOUR community. I can't thank you enough for helping me to fuel this dream and for all your support over the past couple of years!
Shop LOCAL - we’re so grateful to all of our customers and supporters and wanted to let you know that Munchie Mug truly is a small, family run business!
Just a word on what it means to be “local”. I’ve had a lot of people ask me if I’m really a local business because the Mugs are manufactured in California. I can see where they’re coming from, but did you know that many local shops and businesses outsource their supplies and manufacturing from other countries?
But I AM a local mama, (Steveston born and raised, now living in South Surrey), I run Munchie Mug Canada completely on my own (with Hubby’s support), between my regular day-job, naps, school drop-offs and after my kiddos go to sleep. I pick up all the Mug components over the border, myself, and I PERSONALLY assemble each Mug for every single order you receive or see in store. After assembling every Mug, I then package, barcode, invoice and process every order, stuff every box with thank-you cards, print off all the shipping labels, and then drag my kids to the Post Office to send your orders out (sometimes I make several trips in one day to make sure they get to you on time!).
Between packing orders, I’m hustling on emails and phone calls to recruit new retailers that many customers have asked me to contact, and this doesn’t even include social media marketing, collaborations, markets and advertising!
Ooh if you only knew what the small shop community does to market their products and try to ensure their posts are seen. Believe me when I say, we really do do a happy dance when you place an order from our stores and support the crazy moms sitting behind each of these accounts. The amount of time, thought, stress and love - YES LOVE! - that goes into our businesses is unheard of. But it’s because we love our products and love the idea of getting to spend more time at home with the ones we love, that drives us to keep at it.
So when you ask me if I’m really a Canadian local small shop, I have no qualms saying, YES! There’s a local family from YOUR community behind Munchie Mug Canada and when you buy from us, you’re supporting US! Thank you!!!
