    Print this page

    Interest from national magazines in what makes Louisville tick continues to ramp up. None other than international taste maker Martha Stewart is highlighting three Louisville businesses in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards. The program is designed to find “the next generation of American Made entrepreneurs, those who are creating beautiful, inspiring, useful products; pioneering new industries; improving local communities; and changing the way we eat, shop, work, and live.”

    Through October 13, readers can vote up to six times a day for their favorites; one winner will be named 2014 Martha Stewart Audience Choice Award Winner. The prize package includes cash for growing the business, in addition to major exposure opportunities.

    The three Louisville finalists:

    Trifecta Sauce Company

    Co-owner Matt Robbins tells American Made, “our product is not just a great tasting, quality sauce, it’s a story, a history and memories. This is what we believe embodies American Made. It’s pride, a supportive group of family and friends. We put the best in our product to offer the best to others, which is why we are designated Kentucky Proud, using only the finest local ingredients.” Vote for Trifecta Sauce Company.

    Rooibee Red Tea

    Making it into the finals on an audience-driven wild card, Rooibee Red Tea describes how far it’s come: “We are woman owned and woman lead offering a product unlike anything else on the market. In just five years, we've taken a drink that was sold out of the back of a truck at farmer's markets in Louisville, Kentucky to locations across the country.” Vote for Rooibee Red Tea.

    Copper & Kings

    Stylish and stylized new brandy maker Copper & Kings aims to stand out: “Small companies need big personalities. We are not a traditional, heritage projected brand. We are modern, stylish and design driven.” And of Louisville: “We aspire to be an asset to the city around us. Not just a tourist destination but a local treasure.” Vote for Copper & Kings.
