Domi Station Wins National Competition Sponsored by Gentleman Jack
and Wired Magazine
Domi Station was selected as the winner of Pitch Distilled 2019 - a multi-city competition sponsored by Gentleman Jack Double Mellowed Tennessee Whiskey and WIRED Brand Lab. The winning concept, “Hucksters Mobile Market”, focuses on alleviating food waste issues in Tallahassee. The full entry can be viewed at www.wired.com/pitchdistilled. Gentleman Jack and WIRED Brand Lab will host a reception in Tallahassee on April 30th to celebrate the winning team.
After being selected to participate in Pitch Distilled, Domi Station recruited a team of Tallahassee locals to compete, bringing together a wide network of resources for them to use. Over the months that followed, the team, composed of Brittany Gress, Heather Kirwan, Tabitha Frazier, Jesse Taylor, and Anshul Lakshman, worked tirelessly to bring their sustainable concept to life.
Hucksters Mobile Market is a food truck that caters and sells fresh produce to underserved communities. While food banks in the area exist, those without transportation have limited access to their resources. The slogan “Health on Wheels” highlights the mobility to communities in need. Thank you to the support of Leon County, Florida A&M University, Sustainable Tallahassee, The Workmans, Hamptons Inn, Florida State University, and the City of Tallahassee, the team received all the information needed to execute the winning video.
The Pitch Distilled winner was selected by the public through a national online voting process where Domi Station received the majority of the votes. Other competing cities include Oakland, Philly, Houston, Denver, Detroit and Atlanta. The team will receive $10,000, an interview and professional photoshoot with a WIRED Brand Lab editor on WIRED.com, and a celebratory event with a keynote speaker.
