Lori Pecor and Heather O’Brien have extensive backgrounds in small businesses marketing, creative design and hospitality. Shortly after they met last year it became clear that they shared a passion: to help small business grow by building relationships and practicing creative ‘out of the box’ thinking. This passion soon became a partnership that is now Marketing Cents 4u.
Marketing Cents 4u (MC4U) proudly specializes in small business marketing. We strongly believe that the strength of our economy is dependent on the continued success of the small business sector and we understand the growing challenges of which these businesses face. Our mission is to help business owners create the tools they need, not only to survive, but to grow and to prosper.
At MC4U, business owners will have the opportunity to become part of a marketing team that is centered on building relationships, trust and loyalty. The MC4U team will provide the resources, the support and the personal attention their 'partners' need and deserve. And most importantly, MC4U will provide a platform for small businesses to network with other businesses who share in these same beliefs.
‘We are so excited to be working with the small business sector of our community. Our time at the chamber helped us to recognize the tremendous need for the services we are now able to provide. Our upcoming workshop will highlight the types of services we offer, as well as our plans to increase exposure to our region by building and strengthening relationships within and beyond our community. The workshop is free and everyone is welcome’.

Who: Belfast Bay Brewing Company, located in Belfast, Maine, has a story that would impress even the most distinguished of brew masters. Over the past 12 years Pat Mullen has pretty much built a brew empire, if empires are measured by thousands of bottles of champion worthy beer produced (Pat says he stopped counting right around 14,000 cases). And it was not all that long ago that these beers were bottled by Mullen himself, at his dining room table. Today, Belfast Bay Ales can be found in much of the Eastern US and are exported to Canada, Finland and Norway! Mullen now enjoys spending his time traveling to new places and introducing his passion to folks who have not yet had the opportunity to taste the world class beer. Pat is not only succeeding in introducing his beer around the world, he is bringing our great state of Maine right along with it. Thanks Pat!
What: Some of Mullen’s favorite brewing stories include Brewmaster Dan McGovern, (now of 3Tides in Belfast), and their days of co-producing 11 brews in the Searsport Avenue complex that was once home to The Barn takeout stand, a pub and the brewery. It is not surprising that one of Mullen’s World Brewing Championship winners is named McGovern’s Oatmeal Stout. Their other claim to fame is the very appropriately named (thanks to the suggestion of his wife) Lobster Ale. Naturally, Mullen chose to craft a Red Ale to give this Maine namesake its due justice.
When: Although the brewery is not open for tours, the brew team has made sure their fans know how to connect with them! Every bottle of Lobster Ale and McGovern’s Oatmeal Stout has their phone number listed on the label. So after you finish a bottle, be sure to give them a buzz and let them know what you thought!
