Ryan Farr is the founder of 4505 Meats. 4505 Meats began back in 2009 when Ryan, started frying up chicharrones in his home kitchen. Living in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, Ryan was inspired by the many bodegas and shops that carried chicharrones and he thought that the snack would be a great use for the pork skins he often saw thrown away in butchery practices and restaurant kitchens. With his first kid on the way, Ryan decided to start making chicharrones at home and selling them to local bars for extra cash. The chicharrones quickly became infamous throughout the city and endearingly dubbed “crispy clouds of porkaliciousness.”

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn:

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, “Pork skin?” Do you immediately think of the common delicious chip-like snack or are pork skin snacks something that doesn’t appeal to you? On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from entrepreneur and chef, Ryan Farr. In his conversation with Jeremy, Ryan opens up about why he started 4505 Meats, how he came up with the different product flavors, challenges he has faced along the way, and much more. Don’t miss a minute of this interesting episode featuring Ryan’s story!

Imagine realizing that a common by-product of your business could actually be used to turn a profit. Wouldn’t that make your day? Of course, it would! Ryan Farr ran a butcher shop for years when one day he decided to take a common item - pork skin and used it make chicharrones. Now Ryan runs a thriving restaurant in San Francisco, and he runs 4505 Meats which focuses on selling products like chicharrones. You can find a link to 4505 Meats located in the resources section at the end of this post!

Have you had that moment in your business career where everything you’ve been working for suddenly “Clicks” and all of your hard work pays off? These moments are few and far between, but they can be so sweet! Ryan and his team at 4505 Meats have been working hard to get their products carried on the shelves of Whole Foods stores, and now they finally see it all pay off. While Ryan will be the first to admit that the road wasn’t an easy one - he’s also quick to point out that all the struggle was worth it. What can you learn from Ryan’s story?
