BMP Named Finalist as Tampa Chamber’s Small Business of the Year – Two Years In a Row

Bake More Pies named finalist for the 40th Anniversary of the Tampa Chamber’s program naming Small Business of the Year Award

Tampa, FL – Bake More Pies (BMP) transformed the marketing landscape six years ago with their innovative and tech-oriented meaningful content, making noise not just locally but also nationally.

The company, co-founded by Cordes Owen, initially started as a mission out of Owen’s living room. From there, the company now has 19 full-time employees and went from zero to millions in revenue growth. BMP is also headquartered out of a technology-driven 10,000-square-foot working space and studio in Tampa Bay’s vibrant Westshore business district.

The company prides itself on helping clients grow their business through win-win relationships. First, they approach client’s needs by understanding the real data, who their customers are, and how they’re seeking their information. Then BMP dives into the business’ buying cycles and develops sales-funnel and low-funnel digital strategies to deploy based on what the company needs at the right moment.

This includes brand-new and forward-thinking strategies, ranging from produced virtual events and incorporating online streaming content, which the company initiated nearly four years ago when it was still a relatively new concept – to artificial intelligence.

BMP has worked with such notable clients as Florida Orthopaedic Institute (the largest orthopaedic group in Florida), Pool Troopers (the number one pool service company in the nation), Skanksa (the fifth-largest construction company in the world), and Neptune (the first online private flood insurance company), to a name a few.

Skanska USA recently won multiple high-profile projects, in part, because of the virtual presentation work that BMP produced on their behalf. Since Skanska saw so much success with their partnership, they’ve requested exclusivity with BMP within the vertical construction industry.

“We truly view this chamber’s award as a legitimate honor and are grateful to be nominated and recognized for our contributions to the community,” says Owen. “Community support is a huge part of our culture. How we use our assets and expertise to further the advancement of community is important to us.”

BMP supports organizations such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, ART International, Think Big for Kids, TIAPD Guardians Foundation, Women in Film & Television, AD 2, and the Department of Defense Warrior Games. In 2017 BMP helped Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay with virtual event services resulting in reaching more than 80,000 people seeing their event live on Facebook within 24 hours.

“We’ve found that customers desperately want transparency,” says Owen. “Many of our customers were really frustrated before partnering with us. We find that our clients appreciate our honesty and transparency about what is working and what’s not. Our experts then execute, in all digital channels, to provide just the right mix of what each of our client’s need.”

BMP not only shows transparency and support to clients, but they are also building an all-star team. In between their supportive open-plan work environment, growth, and learning opportunities with Dale Carnegie Training are part of their employees’ experience. BMP doesn’t plan on slowing down either, with two state-of-the-art studios, to recently partnered with MAD (a high-end, edgy, branding technology agency collaborating with some of the largest brands in the world), this Florida-native agency is making strides worldwide.

“We will continue our success with the win-win-win philosophy we are known for and help to seed the Tampa Bay community with the next generation of courageous and talented marketers who value the importance of helping others.”
