Northern Minnesota egg producer vies for Super Bowl ad time

Author:

A family-owned egg company in northern Minnesota is one step closer to getting exposure on Super Bowl Sunday.

Northland's NewsCenter reports Locally Laid in Wrenshall, Minn., about 20 miles southwest of Duluth, was one of 15,000 entries in Intuit's Small Business Big Game contest for a chance to win a commercial to air during the Super Bowl.

On Monday, Locally Laid was notified it made the contest's top 20, the only Minnesota business to do so.

The Duluth News Tribune says Locally Laid is the state's only commercial-scale, pasture-raised egg producer, which supplies eggs to two Duluth grocers and four co-ops in the Twin Cities.

The final four entries will be announced on Nov. 4, according to Minnesota Business Magazine. An online vote will choose the winner.

Getting a time slot during the big game in February does not come cheap. USA TODAY reports a 30-second ad is going for more than $4 million.
