Of Lemons and Limes: My Start Up Story

Spot On Foods is a growing wholesale baking company located in beautiful Seattle, WA, but it all started with my dream of starting my own food company.  I didn’t even know what kind of food company it would be, but I knew I wanted to start it.  After four years studying food science and nutrition at the University of British Columbia, one short-lived sales job, almost a year working (and learning a ton) at a local bakery, and testing countless recipes in my kitchen, I felt that I had settled on the 1st product that I believed filled a void in the market and that I was proud to go out and sell.  Each step towards growth and success brings new challenges and I am becoming less fearful and more confident in my decisions everyday. One key to my success thus far is being very open in sharing what I am working on with my close friends and family, listening to their invaluable input, ideas, and concerns, but ultimately following my heart and believing that I know what is best for the business.  Enjoy the video of me sharing the story of how I started Spot On Foods.
