Des Moines Moms Blog is honored to partner with BMW of Des Moines. We love seeing our local businesses give back to our community and appreciate the chance to feature those organizations here on DMMB.
BMW of Des Moines prides themselves on being a part of the community in a myriad of ways. Whether it is through their monthly #GiveBack program partnering with local charities, the Key to the City blog, or the Des Moines Triathlon, they are making a huge impact in our city!
This post is sponsored by BMW of Des Moines, and we’re excited to hear from General Manager Craig Tjeerdsma and invite you to the social event of the season!
After months and months of waiting, the day finally arrived! We have been anticipating the move into our new building for some time now, and it finally took place on September 28. There are a few things left to finish, and that will be happening over the next few weeks, but sales and service is fully operational in the new facility, and it’s an unbelievable feeling to be in our own place. The feedback so far has been very positive!
We are looking forward to hosting the Des Moines Moms Blog Birthday Bash here on November 5. It will be our first event held in the new store, and we are extremely excited to host this event for their followers and guests. Our Grand Opening plans are in full swing, and over the next few months, look for us to be more visible as we promote the new store.
Fall is the time of year when many of the charities and non-profits are in dire need of resources to be able to serve their respective groups throughout the winter months, so I would challenge you to search your hearts regarding giving to one of these fine organizations. We have been very blessed to connect with many Local Organizations Touching Local Lives this past year and see firsthand what a little extra help provides for these amazing groups.
Please stop by and say hi when you are in our neighborhood, and we would love to give you a tour of our new facility!
From Craig Tjeerdsma, General Manager BMW of Des Moines

Food Provided by Fresh Cafe and Market
We will be enjoying three different food stations — one with finger food (raw tacos, bruchetta, etc.); a table with skewers of chicken, beef, and falafel; and a station with dips, veggies, and bread. Around the cake will be truffles and nuts. YUM. Fresh’s menu is based on locally sourced and seasonably available products.
Located at 12493 University Avenue in Clive, this is the perfect place to stop in for a delicious lunch. They are open Monday through Friday 11-2!
Birthday Cake Provided by JillyBean Cakes
A huge thank you to JillyBean Cakes for our birthday cake.
Jill Stoker is a cake and cupcake extraordinaire! What started out as a hobby of making cakes for friends and family has now turned into a flourishing career! Jill’s motto is, “Baking your dreams into reality.” And she does just that with her creativity, making everything from flavored cupcakes to specialty cakes. She is known for her rose swirl and glitter cupcakes. Fun fact about Jill is that her business name, Jillybean Cakes, actually came from the nickname her grandmother gave her. When Jill isn’t busy baking away, she likes to work on various house projects, volunteer at her local church, or hang with her family and friends (especially her two nieces).
A Huge Thanks to BMW of Des Moines
