My love of food and helping others started long before creating The Perfect Granola. While attending culinary school in my early 20’s, I would host “misfit holidays” where everyone from the neighborhood who didn’t have a place to go was welcome in my apartment to enjoy a delicious meal and a feeling of togetherness. This passion for helping continued as I got married and started to have children. I would volunteer at my local food pantry and take a ½ vacation day each Friday to assist community members in selecting their weekly bounty. As my family grew my time became more limited, but I knew I could do more. This is when the idea of starting a food company sprouted. What better way to feed the hungry than start a food company where I could share profits and food with those in need
For months, after working my full-time job during the day and tending to my children at night, I would go back in my office after bedtime and work to create the company. Long days and nights pulled my passion and education together and I launched The Perfect Granola in 2016. Since then, we’ve exploded into the market gaining accounts with Wegmans, Tops Friendly Markets, Kinney Drugs, Price Chopper, Dash's Markets, Shop-Rite, and hundreds of Independent Grocers.
In 2018 we were able to take our mission one step further and hire students through Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection. This gives the students real work experience, and compensation above minimum wage, before graduation so they can learn the skills needed for a bright future. We are continuously working towards providing opportunities to break the poverty cycle which is fueling our hunger issue.
Our company is showing the world that a dream is possible with a clear vision and determination.
Dream big and together we can change the world.
