Kimmi Wernli of Crazy Richard’s

One Ingredient Peanut Butter. The original, since 1893. Additive free, the way snacks should be. We never add sugars, salt or unpronounceable ingredients. That would be crazy. Our mission is to provide an affordable and accessible product and to continually give to, help, and serve those in need. After a lifetime involved in the family business, in 2016 Richard’s daughter Kimmi Wernli officially became who we affectionately refer to as “Richard the Third” and subsequently the first female president/owner of one of the oldest natural food companies in the nation!

Sarah Steinbrunner of Yippea!

Yippea Chickpea Butter Spread was started by two college students who wanted to help people with restrictive diets enjoy foods with their friends and families. They quickly sought out to create shareable snack foods that are wholesome, allergen-friendly, but most importantly, great-tasting. Sarah is the driving force behind product formulations and is working hard to provide more options based on consumer feedback. She is currently studying food science at The Ohio State University and loves to try new foods and cook (if someone else will clean the dishes).
