evangelize, sell (PERSUADE), impeccable, stew / S.T.E.W.




The effort started in 2003, when Salesforce.com launched Sforce, a set of tools to help companies develop some Web-based services. Last year, it created the AppExchange, an online store where customers could access the services from companies building on its platform, and Apex, a programming language that made it easier to get such services to function.

But so far, the company has had only modest success in evangelizing its platform efforts.


Customers don't stew at Stew Leonard's, where the customer is always right -- just ask the customer who got a refund for the turkey she burned. While singing milk cartons and farm animals amuse the kids, three US locations sell a selection of dairy products, juice, wine, and meats to some 300,000 people weekly. Stew Leonard's also offers catering services and online sales. The company produces its own milk and is thought to sell more orange juice than any other store in the world. Charles Leonard began bottling milk in 1924; his son Stew built the first retail store in 1969. Stew Leonard and his family, including CEO Stew Jr., own Stew Leonard's.


Company Perspectives:
Our philosophy is built upon the initials of our name--S.T.E.W. The S stands for satisfy the customer--it is everyone's most important job. The T stands for Teamwork, because teamwork makes it happen! The E stands for Excellence; excellence makes it better and assures great quality and freshness in everything we do. Finally, the W stands for WOW--the WOWs are all the fun reasons that Stew Leonard's is a great place to shop AND to work



The incident took place on Sunday about 75 miles off the coast of Hainan Island, just south of the Chinese mainland. The American vessel, the Impeccable, was carrying out a surveillance mission that involved towing sonar equipment designed for anti-submarine warfare, Pentagon officials said.
