Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Behar.
Jennifer started her career in advertising and marketing. After college at Boston University, she moved to New York City and worked as an advertising account executive on the Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo account and helped to launch Acuvue disposable contact lenses in 26 countries.
Jennifer made breadsticks for dinner parties and friends fell in love. After years of people telling her to sell her breadsticks, a marketing background, and a divorce, Jennifer had an epiphany, create a business doing what she loved.
That was the beginning.
In 2005, Jennifer’s Homemade was born out of a passion for baking and the inspiration to create delicious products with integrity and quality. Our breadsticks and flatbread are made from scratch with only the finest natural ingredients. We use extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt and fresh rosemary in our recipes. Everything is all natural, non-GMO and vegan.
Jennifer’s Homemade has been featured in Food & Wine and Gourmet Magazines, The New York Times, The Miami Herald, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, National Public Radio, an American Express OPEN small business print advertising campaign and Jennifer baked with Martha Stewart on MARTHA, The Martha Stewart Show.
Jennifer’s Homemade breadsticks and flatbread are sold in gourmet markets, hotels and restaurants nationwide.
You can taste the love in every bite.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely been a long and winding road. I always say this has been the most expensive MBA ever! I have made all of the mistakes and learned many lessons. I would say finding a way to stay true to yourself and stay grounded in the process is important. Owning your own business is 24-7 and there are so many things I never thought about when I started. Like payroll, insurance, dealing with employees etc…
Surrounding yourself with good people and asking for help when you need it are important.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Jennifer’s Homemade – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
