Congressman Robert Aderholt on Monday wagered one of Bama in a Box’s boxes against his Ohio congressional colleague on the outcome of Monday night’s national championship football game between the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and Ohio State University Buckeyes.
Bama in a Box, based in Troy, Alabama, is a small business that seeks to help spread awareness and fondness of Alabama-made products to people all over the world.
Angi Horn Stalnaker, owner of Bama in a Box and a 1998 graduate of the University of Alabama, had no idea that the boxes she and her staff send all over the country would be included in the traditional annual wager but she is happy to be included.
“We did not know that Congressman Aderholt was going to wager a Bama in a Box but we are honored to be included,” she said. “We certainly hope we don’t have to send that box to Ohio but when Alabama wins tonight, we just might send the entire Ohio Congressional delegation boxes of Alabama goods.”
Bama in a Box was founded in June 2020 in Troy, Alabama, to help Alabama businesses get exposure for their products and to help consumers who wanted to support local businesses and to keep their money in the local economy. This was critical in the face of pandemic regulations that were forcing many businesses to lay off employees and close their doors.
Bama in a Box’s goal is to provide a cost-effective way for Alabama consumers to sample more than 500 products that are made in Alabama.
