A2: Business

Two Ann Arbor area companies – Motawi Tileworks and Zingerman’s – were featured during a Friday segment about Easter gift baskets on NBC’s Today Show. Cookbook author Kathleen Daelemans showcased eight items for hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, saying the products were made by “little-engine-that-could companies in the heart of America.” The Motawi basket had three trivets – including one with the image of a bunny – while the basket from Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory was full of confections that Daelemans said “bring the flavor back into candy bars.” [Source]
