The Food Company

My grandparents grew up on a small, farm-village in Greece — raising their own cattle, and producing their own eggs, cheese, and milk in order to survive. After immigrating to the United States, our family became lifelong restauranteurs — opening steakhouses, diners, and most notably Greek restaurants named “Tzatziki.” I firmly believe that food is both the world’s most important category and the truest form of medicine. A broken food-industrial complex was built on all the wrong values and is affecting people daily: the main driver of disease. We’re here to flip incumbent models upside-down and transform widespread corruption by re-architecting the toxic food system that is killing us. At The Food Company, we invent and operate the most creative concepts across farms, grocery, and restaurants — bringing them to the masses at an enormous scale.
