Remember when the days when the things you snacked on were made from simple ingredients? These days, there’s no telling what number of lab-grown chemicals and ingredients are used in the snacks we feed our kids and ourselves! What is the solution? On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from both Tom and Eric Healy. In their conversation with Jeremy, Tom and Eric talk about how they got their business off of the ground, what it took to develop their snacks made with simple ingredients, and much more. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to learn from Tom and Eric’s fascinating story!

When you start a new company, one of the biggest fears is how will you find an audience for your product or service. Where would you start if you had to start tomorrow? How would you bring in customers or distributors for your product? Tom Healy was convinced that he had something special the No Bake Cookie he and his wife created. After reaching out to several distributors and wondering which one would bite on the no-bake cookie, they were thrilled to hear Nordstrom would carry the cookies at their Espresso Coffee Bars. What can you learn from Tom’s story and his success with Nordstrom?

Did you know that Avocado chips are notoriously difficult to turn into chips? Think about it; avocados are a very finicky fruit with a smooth and creamy texture. The significant challenge of turning avocados into chips didn’t deter Eric Healy; he had the vision for a healthy snack with simple ingredients. After numerous trials and tests, Eric and his team were able to successfully create their product, AvoLov Avocado Chips. When they unveiled the end result at Exo West, Eric was amazed at the overwhelmingly positive response from the public. Make sure to learn more about AvoLove Avocado Chips and The No-Bake Cookie Co through their websites located in the resources section at the end of this post.
