190 – Taking Chances as You Start and Grow a Business with Kate Flynn of Sun and Swell Foods

Kate Flynn of Sun and Swell Foods

Kate Flynn is the founder and CEO of Sun and Swell Foods, a healthy snack food company based in Santa Barbara, California.

Kate started her company two years ago with her husband, Bryan, after realizing that most packaged snack foods in stores are loaded with added sugars and preservatives.

Her mission is to create on-the-go snack foods that are made with only the highest quality, whole food ingredients, so people don’t have to compromise their health when eating on-the-go.
