We're growing up: Phase 1 of our buildout

In April 2012, we placed our product on the market. We pushed the limits daily in a small shared kitchen. The space was tight and coordinating with other food companies to schedule production time was a pain, yikes. Now, my hubby and I decided, it's time to grow up!



To many, it this seems like a grungy brick building, but to me and my team, it's a big chunk of the American dream. Our 3,000 square foot facility, will house one of the most creative food environments known to food manufacturers. Why, because we are young, energetic, and have the ability to seriously disrupt the food industry with our bad ass ideas:)


We have already touched up the front with some paint and sealant for the parking lot.  I've commissioned a beautiful reclaimed wood planter box and etched metal sign with our logo.

Of course, we are painting the door orange, it is my favorite color and the company's favorite color too!

Our manufacturing area will be  outfitted with high volume auger mixers, date coders, sealers, maple syrup bottling unit, labelers , test kitchen, and big bulky shelves.

Right now, it's empty, take a look

I think one of the most important parts of or building is the conference room. It's where all of the magic happens! Ideas will be generated and history will be made whether it's via a meeting or conference call. We decided to be as innovative as possible. We're a food company that has big ideas like a technology company. All of our walls will be writable thanks to idea paint. I can't wait til it arrives on Tuesday.

This week will start the painting and order for furniture and equipment. Stay tuned for our progress, this will be fun. Well for me exhausting, but well worth it. It's gonna be a hot summer!
