Founder of The Produce Box
All Courtney wanted was to have fresh, locally grown food to feed her family – conveniently! Taking her two small children to the Farmers’ Market was a disaster, and belonging to a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) required being in a certain place at a certain time…a system she found difficult to manage with two toddlers, so she went to work to find a better way. So she created a home delivery business called The Produce Box.
After about five years of work, TheProduceBox, now has 150 employees, most of whom are working moms. Its clients are more than 7,000 families throughout the state.
Courtney will share how she and her husband got the financing they needed to start this venture, and how they have made it so successful!
