Founder, Attain Foods
We'd been mixing everything by hand. For some reason the big industrial mixers here just kind of freaked me out. They're huge. They're noisy, and I just kind of kind of stayed away from them until one day at my partner, my co founder and wife, Bethany was like, Yes, let's give it a try. And it was great. It was like magical. And it had been quite literally under our nose the entire time.
Founder, Mas Panadas
When I first started this, I thought I can go and lease a space and have my kitchen there. And I looked online found Union Kitchen and met up with them and the rest is history.
Founder of Veggie Confetti
I'm really proud of starting by chopping the onions by hand, with a knife, and moving on to a Robot Coupe and so on and so forth. And just going from making 30 cases at a time, to being able to make 200 cases in a day.
