Go Hawks!

Last weekend we had a little “send off” for the Seahawks mascot, Taima. When your “local” team is headed to the Super Bowl, you celebrate!! This weekend, TAIMA THE SEATTLE SEAHAWK IS COMING BACK TO Zaycon Foods!

The Seattle Seahawk has one more stop to make before heading off to the Super Bowl… and it’s here at the headquarters of Zaycon Foods!

By popular demand, our beloved mascot, Taima, is coming back to visit the fans before he heads east to rally the Seattle Seahawks as they face off against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

You can join Taima, the team from Zaycon Foods, and your fellow Seahawks fans this Friday, January 24th, from 4 to 7 PM. Get there early to secure your spot in Taima’s “send off line!”

Bring the whole family and join the fun: get your picture taken with this big, beautiful bird, swap recipe ideas with your fellow foodies, and get a coupon good for $5 off any order you place at ZayconFoods.com through the end of this month – currently on offer are Zaycon’s famous all-natural, boneless, skinless chicken breasts, our beloved bacon, and succulent sausage.

Don’t miss this chance to meet a true sports icon… and don’t forget to wear your Seattle Seahawks gear to show your support!

Go HAWKS!

Welcome our newest member of the Zaycon family.

Ed Martin joins the “Good Food Revolution” as Chief Marketing Officer at Zaycon Foods.

Zaycon Foods of Spokane Valley, WA, a company bringing farm-fresh food directly to the customer, assuring the best quality at the lowest price while also supporting every community the company enters, is pleased to welcome Ed Martin to its talented team.

Martin is a seasoned marketing professional, having worked at some of best known brands in the world, including The Kellogg Company, Coca-Cola, Citi, Ford, and The Hershey Company.

He has been relentless in his focus on using businesses growth as a way to support poverty reduction, health and wellness, expanded education opportunities, and environmental initiatives.

“Driving business growth by leveraging innovation and ‘win-win’ models is the biggest tool I have found to support people in need around the world,” says Martin. “Based on Zaycon Foods’ business model, I can see us scaling up to 100 times our current size while having a tremendously positive impact in every community we enter. And when that is the focus of work, work becomes pure joy!”

The Zaycon Foods founders, partners, and all the team members share the same win-win philosophy and have been operating this way since day one, according to Martin. The company was founded on the simple principle of bringing fresh food directly to customers. By selling in bulk and by cutting out many factors of the traditional food retail process, such as multiple instances of re-packaging and all the handling and storage most foods undergo before reaching consumers, Zaycon is also able to offer remarkably low prices.

Beyond its focus on the intersection of high quality and low pricing, Zaycon Foods has from its conception been committed to having a positive impact on every customer it serves and in every community where it does business. Zaycon focuses on creating minimal waste, on partnering with like- minded nonprofit organizations, and of course on providing natural, nutritious foods. The company has grown organically, with each customer becoming a sort of Zaycon ambassador, spreading the word about the brand to friends and family.

“Ed has worked with leadership in nearly every sector I can think of, from corporations to Foundations, the entertainment industry and government, universities etc. all focused on win-win models, where each group involved in the initiative ‘wins,’” said Zaycon Foods President Mike Conrad. “And he will now be bringing all this to Zaycon Foods… his marketing and innovation acumen along with his passion to grow businesses as way to help people makes him a perfect fit for Zaycon Foods team.”

Zaycon Foods was founded in 2009, and in just a few short years it has grown into an innovative force to be reckoned with on the food retail scene. The company holds regular “sales events” in all 48 of the continental United States, and their customer base grows daily. Thanks to a relentless commitment to quality and service, Zaycon Foods is now a brand trusted by hundreds of thousands of customers, and it is quickly becoming a fixture of myriad communities across the nation.

“THE ZAYCON FOODS 100 WORDS CONTEST”

Patrons of Zaycon Foods understand that our company is about more than just profits: we’re about people. We truly value and care about each and every person we serve. It shows each time our drivers help load an order of fresh chicken breasts into a car; it shows when our customer service team helps reschedule an order because a child got sick before a scheduled event; and it shows the most when we hear the amazingly kind words of our fans, which we do every single day.

We want to give you the opportunity to talk not just to us, but to each other, we want all of you out there in the Zaycon community to hear from one another and to get to know each other a bit better.

To celebrate your loyalty and support, we came up with the Zaycon Foods 100 Words Contest!

Here’s the challenge:

We want you to write a short essay about food and family. And we mean short! These mini essays need to be 100 words or fewer. And those are the only guidelines!

January is here and while we all make New Year resolutions to eat better, once in a while, the winter weather makes me want to make hot soups and comfort foods. Some of my favorite dishes are made with chicken and I keep plenty of Zaycon chicken in my freezer for recipes just like these:

Southwestern 2 bean chicken from Thegraciouspantry.com southwestern-2-bean-chicken-v-a healthy alternative to enchiladas, this recipe is good over rice or wrapped in a tortilla. You can even eat it alone as a soup by adding  chicken broth and with a little sour cream or cheese on top.

Um pasta? yes please. Menu Musings of a Modern America Mom gives step by step instruction for her Tomato Basil Chicken 17 labeled

This is one of my favorite types of dinners and my kids will eat it without complaint.

Ultimate comfort food in a crock pot. Super easy to make and full of everything that tastes good:

Cheesy Chicken Tator Tot Crock Pot Casserole from Familyloveandotherstuff.com
