San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
Petit Amuse is a new online store that promotes sales of gourmet snacks from artisan food producers through a monthly tasting box. The company name is based on the French term, amuse bouche, which refers to an off-menu one-bite appetizer specially prepared by the chef. Similar to how an amuse bouche excites the palate, Petit Amuse aims to surprise and captivate its audience with new and crave-worthy treats. All products are hand-picked based on taste and company values.
Although Petit Amuse offers a monthly sample box subscription service, the similarities with Foodzie end there. Compared to Foodzie’s almost $30/month box, Petit Amuse is offering its monthly subscription box, which includes 3-4 deluxe samples, for only $10.
Further, customers who are interested in buying full sized products will find that Petit Amuse is a one stop shop. Instead of having to buy large quantities and pay shipping for each individual company at Foodzie, Petit Amuse customers can purchase a variety of products at any quantity on the website for $7.99 flat rate shipping.
Most importantly, Petit Amuse strives to create a real connection between the producers and consumers through in-depth producer videos and Q&As specifically created for Petit Amuse. It is this connection that will help support small producers and sustain artisan food production.

Petit Amuse was founded by Ben Appenzeller (CEO) and Rosemary Ku, both graduates of Columbia Business School and long-time supporters of the independent food industry.
