Career Snapshot:

“Disruptors in the Kitchen”:We’re serial entrepreneurs out to uproot how America eats. With 40 years of culinary, operational and ecommerce experience, we’re finding ways to innovate how vegetables are produced, packaged and delivered. Previously, Ben founded restaurant reservation service Savored, which was acquired by Groupon; Greg founded Long Island Iced Tea brands; and Franklin, of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, founded The Little Beet. We’ve come together around a shared love of a delicious meal and with the mission to bring vegetables forward to give them the love they deserve.
