Old Carolina is the best known barbecue restaurant in Stark County, Ohio, serving, as the name indicates, Carolina-style barbecue.

It’s difficult for me to say which Old Carolina menu item is my favorite, but I had two favorites for lunch today, a Pulled Pork Sandwich and a Beef Brisket Sandwich.

Your Right Hand, the Virtual Assistant for Social Media kicked off a brand building campaign, focusing on Facebook, for Purple Door Bakery, a cupcake shop located in  Canton South, on March 29th.

Facebook was, at the time, the only social media channel Purple Door Bakery utilized, so we made building their page the top priority; adding 1,000 new fans, over a two-month period, was the primary objective.

Purple Door Bakery’s Facebook “Like” counter clicked on 1,915 today. That’s +1,008 new fans in 49 days, approximately a week-and-a-half ahead of goal.

Bacon Day at Purple Door Bakery


Purple Door Bakery, a cupcake shop in Canton South, implemented an idea provided by Your Right Hand, the Virtual Assistant for Social Media yesterday; running a “Bacon Day” promotion.

“Bacon Day’ was a big hit for the Purple Door. The items featuring bacon sold out. According to Facebook comments, and response from customers at the bakery, it brought in a number of first-time buyers.

One of the “Bacon Day” selections was conceived by Your Right Hand, a “Maui Wowie” cupcake topped with fresh pineapple, toasted coconut and bacon.
