Bala Cynwyd marketing company First Flavor President Jay Minkoff was on the Today Show yesterday during this week last year promoting its “Peel ‘n Taste” technology, which they say is, “a way to market the most important sensory aspect of your product.”
It was the beginning of what has become a long line of recent news for the five-year-old Montgomery County company, who, we’re happy to share, formulated its business plan at Philadelphia’s own University of Pennsylvania and has since signed on a host of new clients.

Last year First Flavor’s national attention began for an advertising campaign with its peel and taste for Welch’s Grape Juice, first in People’s magazine.
But in March of 2007, First Flavor was a fairly unknown suburban marketing agency. So Minkoff, a 1983 Wharton graduate, took his business model and plans to his alma mater’s Small Business Development Center, as he explained to me last March.
“We needed to evaluate the market size, identify potential strategic partners,” Minkoff told me. “We really got a first-class management type of report done. A report like this would have cost us $20,000. We got it for no cost really.”
I’d say he’s done just fine with the help.
