…And you think that your business is complex?

Meet Luke Saunders, CEO & Founder of Farmer’s Fridge.

His ambitious venture combines custom hardware, software, food prep, distribution, and wirelessly-gathered data analytics. (You could say he’s bitten off alot.)

Based in Chicago, Farmer’s Fridge makes fresh meals in their kitchens & fills their Fridges with wholesome, delicious salads, bowls, and snacks.

Luke founded Farmer’s Fridge in 2013. And he’s dining with some heavy-hitters…

He’s raised $42 million from Danone Manifesto Ventures, Innovation Endeavors, Cleveland Avenue, GreatPoint Ventures, Finistere Ventures, and PowerPlant Ventures.

In this 20-minute conversation, Luke reveals how he’s scaling the team, building the culture, and changing how we eat on the go.
