  1. Love Joan’s Broccoli Madness. I am in San Francisc area. Any chance you will market this in the bay area soon?

    Also are you opening any new restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area?

    Many thanks. Keep the great food coming.

  2. I have bought and shared this fabulous salad with friends many times. I have always bought it at Costco in Lewisville, TX but have not found it in over 2 months and no one can seem to tell me why. Is there someplace else I can purchase it?
