NJFPA Stradley Ronon Food Forum Episode 8

In NJFPA Stradley Ronon Food Forum Episode #8 Bill Mandia, Partner at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP, speaks with Jared Cannon, Founder and CEO of Simply Good Jars. Bill and Jared talk about COVID causing a 98% sales loss and how they bounced back, hiring and the Shark Tank.

In Episode #8 listeners will hear: 

  • How a personal problem turned into a business opportunity.

  • How COVID caused them to instantly lose 98% of sales and upended their entire business model - but focusing on their values and strengths led to a natural pivot.

  • Redefining what “profit” means for an organization.

  • Company culture that has made hiring fast and employees highly motivated. “We’ve never written a job description.”

  • Jared’s almost missed opportunity on Shark Tank.

  • Jared’s predictions for future changes in the food industry.
