Rachel started Grateful Grahams in 2010. With one kid in school and an infant at home, she was looking to create a company to fulfill her passion and dreams of creating her own job. She spent more than seven years working in marketing for a national company, so with her knowledge in the natural foods industry she wanted to create a tasty treat all could enjoy. Between a friend’s suggestion and her dad’s veganism after battling prostate cancer, Rachel developed a great treat – handmade vegan graham crackers.
For Rachel, this company has many aspects – creating her dream job, spreading the message of gratitude, and working with small batches to ensure a great product each time. Starting at home, she outgrew her oven in just a matter of months and shared kitchen spaces with local food producers from there, learning so much along the way. In January 2013 Rachel signed a lease on her very own kitchen space.
She has built a wholesale business shipping orders all over the country, even being featured in a VegNews full page spread.
With a powerful belief in herself and her vision for making Grateful Grahams a household name, Rachel balances the business and her boisterous, fun loving family of five.
