Houston based Sell Gourmet, Inc. maintains operations during and after Hurricane Ike
Houston based gourmet food portal The Sell Gourmet Network is doing its part to help fellow Texans affected by hurricane
Ike. Offers free membership to Houston based food businesses through 2008.

   /24-7PressRelease/ - HOUSTON, TX, September 21, 2008 - Sell Gourmet, Inc., ( the destination
site on the internet for gourmet products and specialty foods, is a Houston, Texas based internet technology company that
has maintained business operations throughout the hurricane Ike disaster.

"Thank goodness we had the foresight to have our servers based in Orem, Utah and our backup servers elsewhere", stated
company president, Jerry Gabbert. In the virtual environment of internet based businesses, "servers" are the physical
location of the computer(s) where the website is housed. From this access point, internet users across the globe are able to
do business, shop or perform a myriad of other functions with the company's website.

"It was critical for us to maintain operations as we have over 100 clients from all over the USA and Canada." Mr. Gabbert
added, "It is our fiduciary responsibility to make sure that a local or regional disaster does not affect the business operations
of our clients in the non-affected areas... and in our case it did not. In fact, from September 12th - 17th over 21 orders were
placed with our clients that are in other parts of the country."

Sell Gourmet, Inc. functions similar to an online portal. Specialty food companies advertise their products on two dedicated
wholesale and retail websites ( and, but the online orders are
actually placed with and fulfilled directly by each individual merchant.

According to Mr. Gabbert, the company has purchased a power generator and will loan the equipment to relief agencies to
use for a family that has no power. "The storm and its aftermath are having a terrible effect on families in the Texas heat as
we were fortunate to use our generator until our electricity came back on. Those not as fortunate need help and we're happy
to do what we can." Gabbert said.

"There are a lot of relief agencies that are focused on individuals that have been affected by the lack of power. It is a
mammoth task in itself to restore power to nearly 2 million people in a reasonable amount of time. The Houston area is
home to many medium to large specialty food businesses that contribute heavily to this industry. We are offering free online
memberships to all Houston Metro area based food companies throughout the rest of 2008. We want to offer something to
local small businesses that may be impacted by this storm as a way to offer their goods for sale across the country."

If companies have unique and high quality products with a great story to tell... we want to speak to them about joining our
site for the upcoming holiday season.

The folks at The Sell Gourmet Network will be happy to discuss how our multi-channel approach to wholesale ordering can
benefit all of your sales channels while having a positive impact in restoring the lives of those who have suffered so much.

enhancing their online presence to fill out a Prospective Vendor Form.
