Mary DeAngelis is really selling it with her simple sales tactics!

As she is explaining the need for this new product, she is also demonstrating its greatness.

“First of all, you have to grease this machine. You have to grease it twice a day,” he said. “Now, the first piece of bologna is perfectly placed. See that circle? If it’s bigger than that circle, it’s not bologna. So that’s the first thing the machine is doing for you.”

Then a lightbulb went off in DeAngelis’s mind when he realized he had set the machine to “dilute.”

“Now we know we can arrange bologna, there’s a thin stack. Here’s another piece of bologna,” he continued and demonstrated all the amazing things this big machine can do.

The next piece of bologna was a “thick piece” so it had to be “arranged” on the edge, which is another super helpful function of this machine.

Nobody likes bologna folded and put on a sandwich, right? Well, Bologna Folder will take all that work away and make your life a little easier. While demonstrating how the machine folds bologna, DeAngelis goes through a bit of a “learning curve.”

“Beautifully folded,” she said. “And then you take it and stack it.”

Then it was time to discuss the nice colors this machine comes in, which is important since it is huge and will likely be on your kitchen counter in front of everyone who enters the house.

“So we have it in black and aqua, tan, taupe, coming soon, beige, greige, oh that sounds fun,” she said with excitement in her voice. “We also have it in the pus, it’s fresh. Then we also have it in the bone and the color is said to be yellow.”

DeAngelis then broke the great news that “We have every single one of them in stock!”

“The price is $22.76 and Easy Pay is $11.38,” she informed everyone getting ready to place their orders. “So don’t miss it.”
