We practice Open Book Management, sharing our numbers with the team, so that everyone can participate in running the company profitably and sustainably. OBM helps to hold us accountable for the work we do and the departments we run.
Supporting Local Farms
We source much of our ingredients from local Michigan farms. Using all natural ingredients that are grown in a sustainable, healthy way is very important to us.
